A sixth put: “Catching up on this… Rinder gets 30… but Barney is streets ahead and scores less? What’s the point? #AllStarMusicals.”

“Barney was undermarked and should have won,” wrote one. They added: “Although Rob was a close second #AllStarMusicals.”

However, some agreed with the final result, tweeting to say Robert Rinder fully deserved the win.
