GREAT British Menu fans have ripped into the 'ludicrously bad' chefs as they slammed the BBC.
The latest instalment of the cooking competition aired on Thursday as the remaining chefs from London and the South East battled it out.
They were Avi, Robbie and Budgie – with Avi in the lead with 16 points as the episode opened.
This year's series of The Great British Menu celebrates animation and illustration.
All three chefs took on the brief which is inspired by Paddington Bear's 65th Birthday.
For mains, two chefs took inspiration from Quentin Blake’s illustrations of Fantastic Mr Fox and the animated Wes Anderson film version.

Meanwhile, there was also a Peruvian-inspired main celebrating Paddington featuring a spiced sirloin of beef, an enticing short rib beef and marmalade sandwich and an aji verde sauce.
As they tried to impress award-winning chef Tommy Banks viewers weren't happy.
They slammed the show for their 'ludicrously bad' and 'sub-par' chefs as they took a swipe at the Beeb.
One wrote: "Considering the renown of this programme…The quality of chefs this year has been ludicrously bad, with the odd exception.

"London is the most exciting food city in the World – where did they get these useless chancers?"
A second fumed: "I didn’t see last night but the dishes tonight haven’t been Sunday lunch worthy let alone banquet worthy, whoever goes through to tomorrow seriously need to up their game."
"Nothing that stands out as banquet worthy or well linked," said a third.
A fourth commented: "There must be some chefs from the actual South East that could be given a chance? London hasn't really offered up anything spectacular this year. How about giving Sussex, Kent, Essex etc a look?"
"Are these really the best up and coming chefs to be representing London and the South East? Pretty dire so far this week," said a fifth.
As the episode came to an end Avi remained in the lead with a total score of 32 while Robbie had 27 points and Budgie in last place with 25.
The Great British Menu continues Thursdays at 8pm on BBC One and iPlayer.
