Great British Bake Off 2019: Viewers left reeling over biscuit week’s fig roll challenge | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

The Great British Bake Off is renowned for giving its contestants a huge array of challenges throughout their time on the show.

This week saw the contestants taking on Biscuit Week, in which they were tasked with taking on a number of biscuit related challenges.

While the first saw them making a collection of chocolate biscuits, the second was a little different.

The second challenge of the day saw judge Paul Hollywood explain this biscuit was his father’s favourite: A fig roll.

Despite this challenge taking a number of the contestants by surprise, they mostly managed to take on the final product without much difficulty.

But fans of the show were a little more reluctant to accept the fact that fig rolls were part of biscuit week.

Many fans even claimed fig rolls were not biscuits in any way, and began hitting out on Twitter about the newly-realised controversy.

One wrote: “How is a fig roll a biscuit if it is a pastry…… #GBBO.”

Another said: “A fig roll is not a biscuit, it's a cake. Livid. #GBBO @BritishBakeOff.”

A third agreed: “Since when is a fig roll a biscuit?! Prue and Paul keep saying pastry… so why is it in biscuit week?! #GBBO.”

One fan angrily exclaimed: “Fig roll is NOT a biscuit #GBBO,” alongside a number of furious emojis.

Despite this outrage, the contestants seemed to do well with the challenge - other than Helena who found her fig rolls coming last in the final rankings.

Helena has had a difficult episode this week, as Paul earlier called her witch’s finger biscuits “boring”.

Upon inspecting her biscuits Paul turned up his name and announced: “They’re a bit boring.”

In an interview with her later on, Helena didn’t seem too happy about the assessment.

When she appeared on the camera following Paul’s comments, she was eager to reveal how she really felt.

Exclaiming to the camera she announced: “How dare he! How dare he!”

Luckily Helena survived the challenges and lived to bake another week.

Great British Bake Off airs Tuesdays on Channel 4 at 8pm.
