CELEBRITY Masterchef viewers last night rallied around just one contestant – kids TV legend Paul Chuckle.
The 74-year-old star – one half of the Chucklevision duo when his brother Barry was still alive – sailed through to the quarter-finals.
One fan echoed many when they tweeted: “Paul Chuckle is a national treasure and needs to be protected at all costs.”
Ein anderer schrieb: “Paul Chuckle seems to be eternally an incredibly hard-working, pleasant and humble person.”
Others called for him to have his own cooking show, with a third posting: “Oh my heart, Paul Chuckle is a delight.”
Paul, who only took up cooking in lockdown, made mushroom spinach and sundried tomato risotto, served on a cauliflower steak.
He posted on Twitter after the show: “QUARTER FINALISTS!!! I personally cannot believe it!”
Comedian Kae Kurd was eliminated by judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode.
