Celebrity Masterchef fans couldn’t hide their upset as they accused the show of failing to maintain hygiene standards.
Viewers took to Twitter to question why some of the stars weren’t wearing hairnets, despite being in a professional kitchen setting for the latest episode of the tense cooking show.
Friday’s episode of Celebrity Masterchef saw both Karen Gibson and Dom Littlewood eliminated after failing to impress Gregg Wallace and John Torode.
What’s going on? Celebrity Masterchef fans couldn’t hide their upset as they questioned why stars failed to wear hairnets
This week fans saw Olympic hockey star Sam Quek, EastEnders’ Phil Daniels and and Karen try to conjure up cuisine to impress the judges.
Fans were quick to point out that they should be wearing hairnets in a kitchen, claiming it flouted health and safety rules.
One fan tweeted: ‘Why don’t those with long hair wear a hair net in line with food hygiene standards.’
Another posted: ‘Long hair in the kitchen and no hairnet – Grrr!’
Bizarre: Viewers took to Twitter to question why some of the stars weren’t wearing hairnets, despite being in a professional kitchen setting
Annoyed: Many took to social media to share their outrage. Current food safety regulations state the use of a hairnet cannot be enforced
A third also tweeted: ‘Why did last night Celebrity Masterchef contestants not have nets on their hair while cooking? That would not happen in a professional kitchen. Hair in your food. No no.’
One also posted: ‘I wish they were wearing hair nets though… nobody wants a hair choking them as they eat their lunch -gag gag.’
Food Safety regulations state that when working in a kitchen long hair must be tied back, which in Sam’s case it was, but the use of a hairnet is not enforced.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Celebrity Masterchef for comment.
In the clear: Dom Littlewood was the only star free of critique, due to his bald head

Friday’s show saw fans both Karen and Dom eliminated from the show after failing to win over the panel with the dishes.
Karen was forced to serve her duck undercooked after running out of time, while Dom dished up soggy carrot bhajis and a prawn curry.
Sam and Phil advanced to the second round, with a new group of stars set to complete in the famous kitchen next week.
Celebrity Masterchef continues on Wednesday at 9pm on BBC One.
