MasterChef was all about aubergine innuendo tonight

In the last quarter-final of the current series of MasterChef, notoriously nasty food critic (and Captain Jack Sparrow lookalike) Jay Rayner tasked the hopefuls with making either an aubergine-based main course or a dessert with honey.

Lorna greatly impressed with her beautifully presented dessert, Fumbi continued to cook in the most charmingly chaotic way possible, while Jim failed to actually add any honey to his honey ice cream.

At the end of the day, Gregg, John and Jay elected to put Lorna, Brodie, Shauna and Fumbi through, while Natalie, Louise and Jim were sent packing.

But what did viewers at home think about it? Well... As anyone who lives in the modern world will know, the aubergine is based off the eggplant emoji that people just love to use as a substitute for a penis, so you can imagine that viewers took those potential innuendos and ran with them.

Next up on MasterChef is Knockout Week - will any of tonight's victors make it through? Will the innuendos reach The Great British Bake Off-level? Will Gregg Wallace keep pulling the most wonderful faces?

MasterChef continues Monday (April 24) on BBC One.
