One added: “Is there a particular reason why John Torode models his hair on his Aunt Muriel?” referring to a Harry Potter character.

Another said: “John needs a haircut! #CelebrityMasterChef.”

Meanwhile, earlier this week on the programme, viewers had a theory about contestant Penny Lancaster.

Penny has wowed on the show with her culinary skills but some viewers were convinced she had tips from a professional chef.

The Loose Women star told John and Gregg Wallace: “When I first met Rod about 20 years ago he had a chef so there wasn’t much need for me in the kitchen, thank God.

“Rod likes the fine dining every evening, three-course dinner, candles and it’s kind of out of my league.”

She added: “We’re very lucky to have a chef, so he’ll do the dinner parties because I want to have a drink and have fun with my guests.”

One viewer said on Twitter: “Penny Lancaster definitely had some lessons with her private chef before the show didn’t she.”

Another wrote: “I’m sure Penny’s chef gave her a few tips…”

Penny is cooking alongside Megan McKenna, Nabil Abdulrashid and Melanie Sykes.
