Viewers of Celebrity Masterchef have a bone to pick with the judges as they complain it must be “fixed” following Joe Swash making it to the final.

The 39 year old former Eastenders star had previously shocked viewers of the BBC One competition as he failed to boil an egg.

But while Joe made some mishaps throughout the show, his final dishes still managed to impress judged Greg Wallace and John Torode, securing his place in the final.

Fans were quick to criticise the pair after favourite Dion Dublin was sent home in favour of Joe on Thursday’s episode.

One fan wrote: "#CelebrityMasterchef must be having a laugh putting Joe Swash in the final.

"His food is basic and messy plus he shouts all the time #fix"

While another lamented the loss of Dion: "I'm never watching Celebrity Masterchef if Joe Swash wins. It's a fix.

"Dion and Bezz were fantastic. Same thing happened on Dancing on Ice, where Perrie was 100 times better!!"

A third joked: "Joe Swash will probably serve up sausage and mash with lumps in and no seasoning… and win,"

Thursday’s episode also saw the booting of Love Island star Kem Cetinay as he failed to impress judges with his gourmet pie.

Fans were mortified by the loss as Kem had proved to be a delight in his run on the season.

One said: “Nooo! Kem was so good. The show won’t be the same without him. He was much better than Joe,”

As another said Kem “deserves” to be there: “I don’t understand how Joe is still there but Kem has gone home. I love, love, love Joe but can’t help feel that Kem deserves to be there more.”

The fan discussion has grown intense over the recent development, but Joe still has fans in his corner as some said “Joe for the win.” And defended the star.

“Awh why is everyone hating on Joe Swash? He’s such a legend and he’s really good in the kitchen. He’s getting better,” one Tweeted.

Joe is set to go against Megan McKenna and Kadeena Cox in tonight’s episode of the show in hopes of winning the final.

Joe’s partner Stacey Solomon has been proudly following his journey on the show, as she shared a post to Instagram of them sat together watching the first episode.

She captioned: “I have the biggest smile on my face I'm sooooooo proud. He put everything into this and I've been so excited to watch him."
