During this week’s Bake Off, Noel Fielding decided to tell the bakers they were half way through their challenge from inside a fridge. 

Co-host Sandi Toksvig then closed the door on the Mighty Boosh actor, leading to hundreds of outraged viewers taking to Twitter to complain. 

“How stupid can you be?” wrote one. “You should never shut people in a Fridge even for comic effect! Children are watching this!”

Another added: “Shocking. So dangerous. How could this get onto a family program. Wouldn’t happen on the Beeb.”

Since the incident, 24 people have complained to Ofcom about the fridge antics. The watchdog has since confirmed the number, a spokesperson saying: “We will assess these complaints before deciding whether or not to investigate.”

The episode of Bake Off was also notable for featuring lots of innuendo, particularly the technical challenge which saw bakers making a Cottage Loaf, the technique involved called, by Paul Hollywood, the “finger treatment”.

Bake Off airs every Tuesday on Channel 4 at 8pm.
