The Great British Bake Off’ has come under fire from unimpressed viewers after host Noel Fielding hid in a fridge.

On Tuesday’s (12 September) episode, presenter Sandi Toksvig was seen opening one of the large fridges in the ‘Bake Off’ tent to reveal her co-host Noel inside.

After Noel tells the bakers they don’t have much time left to complete their challenge, Sandi closes the door on him.

'Bake Off' hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Toksvig gag didn't go down well with viewers.

The scene didn’t go down well with many viewers, who slammed Channel 4 for being “stupid” and “irresponsible”.

It didn’t help that the Channel 4’s official Twitter account also tweeted a clip of the moment, which was captioned: “Just when you thought Noel Fielding couldn’t get any cooler.”

HuffPost UK has contacted Channel 4 for comment.

It’s not the first time Noel Fielding has found himself in hot water with fans of the show.

Earlier this month, the presenter was accused of demeaning gay sex for a joke, after sharing a picture on social media. 

The former ‘Mighty Boosh’ star was keen to deny reports of a feud between him and long-standing judge Paul Hollywood, but his way of doing so was not well-received by everyone.

He posted a picture of himself and Paul simulating a gay sex act, along with the caption: “This should put to rest any rumours that me and blue eyes @PaulHollywood don’t get on :) ha ha ha x.”

However, the tweet was met negatively by some fans on Twitter, who claimed the picture was “offensive” and “tasteless”.

As well as fridge-gate, Tuesday’s episode of ‘Bake Off’ also happened to be an absolute filth-fest.

There were so many innuendos strewn across the 70-minute episode, that even Mary Berry would have been left blushing. 

‘The Great British Bake Off’ continues on Tuesdays at 8pm on Channel 4.
