The latest episode of the cookery competition aired its semi-final episode on Friday (2 September).
Former Coronation Street star Thomas competed on the series against DJ Lisa Snowden and RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Kitty Scott-Claus.
Thomas, 38, ended up being eliminated – a decision which surprised viewers and led t outcry on social media.
“I think Ryan‘s been stitched up here,” one fan wrote, adding: “Negative comments from Greg & John not deserved.“
Another viewer called it “a stupid decision”, stating that Thomas’s dishes were “better” than his fellow contestants’.
“Ryan‘s turn to be robbed tonight,” a viewer stated, with another fan saying the decision “was tough” on him as “he’s been amazing” throughout the series.
“What a stitch up!!” another fan agreed, adding: “He was the best in all the other challenges!”
Earlier this week, presenter and disability advocate Adam Pearson issued a “sarcastic” aplogy after being booted off the show.
