If there's one contestant who has stood out to viewers of this series of MasterChef, it's Fumbi.

But as things have rolled on and people have been eliminated, Fumbi's fumbling (as people have dubbed it) and obvious mistakes have started to divide the public: some people still find him charming and entertaining, others feel he has been given too many chances.

Tonight (April 26) proved no different, as our hopefuls had to work a shift in professional chef Shaun Rankin's restaurant and crumbled under the pressure – or should that be crumbled under the pasta?

He was confused by ravioli, you see. It's a pun.

You know what, let's just hand over the witty commentary to you guys, and see what you thought of tonight's episode (tweets may contain strong language).

And the most scathing tweet of all:

The action then returned to the MasterChef kitchen and if you think Fumbi was crumbling under the pressure before, he then tried to make... a crumble.

Fortunately/unfortunately for our least favourite/favourite contestant, his dessert was slated for not having any stand-out flavours, looking too messy and not having a strong base.

To the surprise of no-one, Fumbi was sent home, and, to the surprise of no-one, people have mixed feelings about this:

MasterChef continues tomorrow night (April 27) at 8pm on BBC One.
