Great British Bake Off viewers are demanding justice for one of its contestants

Justice for Iain.

GREAT BRITISH BAKE Off viewers are all up in a heap and demanding justice for one of the show’s contestants.

Allow us to explain.

Last night, contestant Iain Watters was preparing a Baked Alaska. He left it in the freezer to set. Unfortunately for him, however, a fellow contestant Diana Bird removed the Baked Alaska from the freezer. When he went to check whether it was okay, he discovered a big ol’ gloopy mess.

He then went into a huff and unceremoniously dumped the would-be Baked Alaska.

When he was asked to present his dessert, he opted to bring up the bin to the judges.

Naturally, he was eliminated from the show. His elimination has prompted outcry from Twitter users who are now demanding justice for the ousted contestant. (This morning, #justiceforiain was still trending in the UK.)

This tweet has been retweeted over 4,000 times.

The actions of Diana have prompted Twitter users to christen her #dirtydiana.

And yes, the incident has inspired plenty of memes.

And conspiracy theories.

And unkind Wikipedia edits.

For his part, Iain is at peace with the whole situation, describing Diana as a “top lady” and insisting there’s no animosity between the pair.

There you are now.
