CELEBRITY Masterchef fans have branded the show a fix after they spotted a baffling way the finalists are connected.
Thursday's episode saw seven famous faces take to the kitchen once more.
After the first cooking challenge of the episode, Melanie Sykes was chosen as the star cook and sent straight through to the final six.
The remaining celebrities were then left to cook again; Joe Swash, Dion Dublin, Megan McKenna, Bez, Kadeena Cox and Kem Cetinay.
After serving up some tasty treats for a party, judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace decided that Happy Mondays star Bez had reached the end of the road and sent him home.
This meant Joe, Dion, Kadeena, Kem and Megan joined Melanie in the final six.
However, some Celebrity Masterchef viewers were not impressed by the judges decision to send Bez home, and felt they were showing bias towards the southerners in the competition.
Taking to Twitter, one wrote: "Poor Bez can’t help thinking the others are all getting help with their homework all Essex now innit."
Another added: "#celebritymasterchef The dumbing-down of British TV has bled into this show …. Is it me or is there an Essex-centric bias ? Slack has been cut to the Essex 3 throughout. Bez has gone so Im outta here."
A third tweeted: "What a farce. Bez was robbed. Didn’t have the Essex accent."
Meanwhile a fellow viewer raged: "Kem has no plate without lamb peppers n feta thruout n Steak n chips guy stays reallyGrimacing faceYet Bez goes home! Bl***y liberty #CelebrityMasterChef. What about flat Yorkshires never mind flat bread Horrid fix."
However, their theory doesn't totally ring true, as while Megan and Kem are from Essex, and Joe is from London, Dion was born in Leicestershire, Kadeena is from Leeds and Melanie hails from Lancashire.
But with more rounds still to come, viewers will have to wait and see if more of the northern celebrities go home or make it through to the grand final over their southern co-stars.
Celebrity Masterchef airs on BBC One and is available on BBC iPlayer.
