CELEBRITY Masterchef fans were livid after John Torode ‘stole’ Gregg Wallace’s legendary catchphrase.
The second week of heats began with five new celebrities taking part.
As the cameras watched the 47-year-old mix her ingredients, John said: “That’s inspired, as long as we’ve got a nice buttery biscuit base, as long as that cheesecake topping is firm, lots of peanut butter, lots and lots of chocolate….absolutely brilliant.”
Hy het bygevoeg: “Jy weet wat, I think Mel’s a bit of a cook.”
Egter, fans immediately picked up on the fact John had uttered the immortal words usually reserved for Gregg.
The 57-year-old has said “buttery biscuit base” so much over the years it was turned into remixed tune in 2013.
Suffice to say, the track went viral and the catchphrase has belonged to Gregg ever since.
So the fact that John decided to steal it off him in the latest episode got Beroemde Masterchef fans talking.
