For the first ‘Under the Cloche’ challenge, contestants were each given an ingredient to create a dish with, with Joe being given pigeon while fellow contestant Will Kirk (star of The Repair Shop) was given chickpeas which he served with chicken.

Despite other contestants being supportive of one another and saying they were ‘all did a good job’ after the first challenge Joe told Will: ‘Because your chicken was so bad, I feel like there’s no pressure’.

In a second challenge, the contestants were asked to recreate Jamaican street food dish Escovitch fish and festival dumplings.

While judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace praised actress Melissa Johns dish, Joe disparaged his fellow contestants, writing: ‘I looked around and there were some right messes on the plate, mine was decent’.

On the third challenge, contestants were tasked with making a dish of their choice, with judges praising Joe’s lamb kofta with tzatziki while they were less favourable towards Will’s duck which was undercooked.

‘As long as I’m not the worst review I’m happy. Will did another bit of raw meat, he dug us all out of a hole hasn’t he,’ Joe said through laughter.

Viewers were left seething at Joe’s comments, with one writing: ‘There’s no need to be so nasty about another contestant’s effort.’

‘Joe Swash mocking Will for not cooking his duck properly is not nice,’ added another.

‘I never had a particular opinion about Joe Swash but seeing him being so nasty about the other contestants has given me one! Not nice at all,’ wrote a third.

A fourth penned: ‘ Was thinking Joe Swash was quite funny, but two digs at a fellow contestant… hope he goes home next. Not deserving. Not funny.’.

At the end of the episode, Will left the show with Joe joining contestants Katie Price,  Melissa Johns and Dion Dublin to advance to the next round.

On advancing to the next round, Joe added: ‘Stacey and the kids will definitely be happy for me. But they’ll be surprised. Thing is, they have terrible palates, They don’t appreciate what’s put on the plate’.
