The Wirral judge caused controversy on tonight’s episode when he made a special request for one food item not to be included in tonight’s bakes.
Paul Hollywood shocked Great British Bake Off fans tonight as he admitted he hated an unusual food.
The judge was very fussy as the bakers created their dishes
He asked if they were including gherkins in their bakes and both contestants confirmed they were.
But as Paul came around to chat to the contestants and the two contestants said they were making burgers with all the trimmings, Paul’s face fell.
The bakers were tasked with making steamed Japanese buns on tonight’s show, with two of the bakers, Lottie and Mark, deciding to make burgers in their buns.
And viewers at home were also stunned at Paul’s request.
Paul then made a request for them to be left off the one he would sample, as he hated them.
His demand caused shock in the tent, with host Noel Fielding in disbelief that the chef wouldn’t try the dish as it came.
Jayne Yarwood said: “Surely if they’re being told to take out gherkin for Paul then they’re not identical anymore? Paul wrecking the brief for being pinickity!!”
Suzanne Brown said: “Paul doesn’t like gherkin? What a wally.”
