Great British Menu fans demand format shake-up as contestant 'robbed' of win and sent home | The Sun
GREAT British Menu fans have demanded a format shake-up after a contestant was 'robbed' of a win and sent home.
The BBC Two show saw chefs from Scotland compete this week, with the final two – Mark and Adam – cooking for the judges on Thursday night's episode.
Both pulled out some standout dishes across the starter, fish, main and dessert courses.
The judges had no idea who had cooked what as they tasted each course, and scored them blind.
It was then left to host Andi Oliver to reveal who had scored the most points and gone through to the final.
She announced that Adam had triumphed, but chef Tom Kerridge was quick to tell Mark: "But Mark honestly, it's been so, so close but Adam congratulations."

Great British Menu viewers were gutted to see Mark go home, especially after being left underwhelmed by the winners of the past two weeks of regional heats.
Taking to Twitter to complain, one wrote: "This is where the format fails, basically Adam won by a good dessert only, Mark had him beaten on the starter and fish, matched him on the main."
Another added: "When you look back at the previous two weeks' winners, Mark should definitely take one of their places."
A third replied: "Agree. Different standards of cooking from various regions."

Meanwhile a fourth shared: "If ever there was an argument for both chefs to go through it was this week especially after a poor couple of weeks.
"Wish the judges could award a wildcard."
Others were full of praise for the standard of cooking this week, with one writing: "
One of the best weeks ever on Great British Menu so so happy for Adam @AHRestaurants so well deserved."
Another tweeted: "Back to expected standards this week, I'd say Mark had the 1st half of the menu but Adam smashed the 2nd. Close run thing. Well done to them both."
Great British Menu airs on BBC Two and is available on BBC iPlayer.
