GBBO Contestant Claims She Has Been Framed



The Great British Bake Off contestant Diana Beard, 69, says she has been used as a scapegoat and claims she has been stitched up by BBC’s editing.

When Beard saw the episode in which she played a part in the elimination of Iain Watters, she stated that she had been framed.

“I’m disappointed with the way it’s been portrayed,” she said. “I’ve been stitched up, haven’t I? We were 12 amateur bakers, [there’s] no prize money involved. Why would I sabotage Iain’s Baked Alaska? This has made it look like some cutthroat competition,” she added. “I think someone’s culpable for the editing, really.”

A BBC spokesperson said: “As shown in the episode, Iain became the fourth baker to leave the tent because he didn’t present Mary and Paul with anything to judge in the showstopper challenge and both judges were very clear about the reasoning behind the decision.’’

“Due to the extreme temperature in the tent that day, many of the bakers struggled to get their ice cream to set as seen in the episode. Diana removing Iain’s ice cream from the freezer for less than a minute was in no way responsible for Iain’s departure.”
