MasterChef viewers slammed a contestant for using a bizarre 'leftover' ingredient for their dish as they aren't convinced he followed the rules.
In the latest episode of the hit BBC One cooking competition, which aired on Tuesday night (May 2), judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode and guest critic Jimi Famurewa set their seven remaining contenders a new challenge.
The hopefuls were told they would need to create a dish using just leftovers or waste material.

But while many of us may have interpreted the brief as being made from leftover pieces of food that has been put in a Tupperware box in the fridge – one of the contestants had other ideas.
Other contestants were scrambling to start their food prep when contestant Chris raised a few eyebrows by revealing his leftover food was croissants.
The 43-year-old circus performer explained: "I'm going to make for you today a caramelised custard croissant mille-feuille."
He then continued to explain the process of perfecting the dish, Chris as he started by slicing the bottom of the croissant.
"I'm going to dust it with icing sugar and then I'm going to roll it out, compress it a little bit, bake it and then that should have a nice crisp when it cools down," the bloke from Henley-On-Thames added.
However, MasterChef viewers took to Twitter to criticise the bloke's dish as they claim croissants 'didn't count' as leftovers.
One person argued: "Do those croissants really count as “leftovers”?"
Another wrote: "So what are the leftovers then? 30 Fresh croissants, come again?"

"None of these ingredients are really leftovers though are they," a third commented.
A fourth fumed: "The challenge is to cook with leftovers and this lad is just using croissants – How is a croissant a leftover."
A fifth quipped: "Apparently everyone buys bananas and croissants only to throw them away."
