@Brackers_ remarked: “Apl was such a left-field booking for #CelebrityMasterchef but apart from that mad potato thing his food all looks really amazing.”

“Aw gutted Apl didn’t get through but right decision #CelebrityMasterChef,” @pavarottishighc commented, offering a different perspective.

Announcing the news of Apl’s elimination, Gregg explained to the hopeful chefs: “We have of course talked to the guests in the dining room, we’ve got their feedback… We have made a decision.”

He continued: “The celebrity leaving us is Apl.”

The 48-year-old struggled to hide his disappointment as he slowly nodded before eventually smiling at his co-stars.

“Apl, you have been a joy in this competition,” John priased, adding “Thank you very much, it’s been brilliant having you.”

Speaking to cameras, Apl admitted: “You know, I’m a bit sad, but I’m good, I’m good.

“I had a great time. If I can try again, I’ll sign up again, you never know!”

Celebrity MasterChef continues on Tuesday at 8pm on BBC One.
