Holly Willoughby, Phillip Schofield and the whole of the UK watching were given quite a fright when the chef was completely oblivious to a tea towel quickly catching fire behind him.
Whilst John Torode was showing the hosts how he makes his take on the sausage McMuffin at McDonald’s, his tea towel had caught fire in the background forcing Holly and Phillip to shout at the chef repeatedly to warn him.
“John, your tea towel is on fire!” cried out Holly, before Phillip continued to shout “look behind you!” amidst the complete oblivion of Torode.
Finally, after a few seconds of panic from the hosts, the MasterChef calmly turned around to move the fire under the tap.
Thankfully, nobody was hurt.
