GBBO viewers outraged over contestant’s controversial Cornish pasty fish filling

Great British Bake Off viewers were left flabbergasted over a contestant's Cornish pasty creation during Tuesday's episode.

The iconic baking show was back as the contestants battled it out in pastry week.

Judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith's signature challenge for the half-way point of the series was Cornish pasties.

Peter revealed he was making a pasty containing fish, rice and eggs, but many viewers thought his idea of a kedgeree Cornish pasty was "criminal".

They went into meltdown on Twitter, with one writing: "Fish and eggs? Peter. No. Stop. #gbbo".

While another wrote: "Fish in a pastie? Absolutely not."

"Fish in a pasty is a CRIME against the southwest soz", penned a third.

A fourth fumed: "What the f*** is this s***t? A toad in the hole pasty? A haddock and egg pasty? You can have meat, you can have carrot, you can have swede and you can have onion. Anything else and it’s a f***ing bake #GBBO".

Another typed: "As a Cornish person I can safely tell you that not one of those is an actual f***ing pasty. #gbbo".

However, not everyone was outraged at Peter's signature bake.

Many praised the baker for his fishy pasty creation, and the contestant received plenty of compliments for the look of the fish pasties.

One said: "Peter's kedgeree pasties look delicious. #GBBO".

"Peter's pasties look b***dy amazing #GBBO", said another.

Another praised the baker for his fish shaped pasties, saying: "yo peters fish shape is incredible!!!!"

Peter's fellow contestant Marc, who is from Cornwall, also made a fish pasty.

While Peter's used Haddock, Marc's were filled with monkfish.

After the signature challenge, the bakers were given the technical challenge of making éclairs.

Their final task was to make a show-stopping tart.
