Alan Carr’s cake-making may not have gone down very well on Celebrity Bake Off, but it’s his tea-making which really got viewers talking.

Alan Carr Bake Off

After finishing his filled muffins in the first task for the Stand Up To Cancer special, the comedian decided to relax and have a sit down as his competitors continued to panic around him.

But while pouring himself a nice cuppa, Alan then shocked the nation when he carelessly threw a huge glob of milk into the mug which turned his tea into what can only be described as murky dishwater.

While everyone has their own way of making a decent brew, it seems the whole nation was in agreement that there should at least be more tea than milk.

And Channel 4 viewers were soon in uproar and dubbed him the ‘worst tea-maker ever’.

“Anyone else distraught by how much milk Alan Carr just threw into that cup of tea #gbbo“, asked one fan on Twitter.

Another agreed: “Alan carr should be ashamed….that cuppa tea looked awful!”

While a third added: “Alan put way too much milk in that tea and I can’t stop thinking about it”.

And they weren’t the only ones…

Although clearly some viewers are also fans of a really milky brew…

Despite having a minor tea disaster, 41-year-old Alan – who took on Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher, comedian Aisling Bea and Paralympian Kadeena Cox in the competition – did manage to turn things around and actually came second in the technical challenge for his custard pie.

And when it came to the showstopper, judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith were left very impressed by his creativity as the star produced a rainbow cake featuring characters from the kids’ TV show Rainbow.

After chucking his first lot away for being undercooked, that is…


Unfortunately, Alan didn’t come out on top as he was beaten American actress Teri – who even bagged herself a Hollywood Handshake!
