Bake Off received complaints for Tuesday night’s episode.
It was cookie week during this week’s Great British Bake Off, but it wasn’t just the bakers who struggled during the show.
The last episode was the subject of complaints as viewers complained about the sound throughout the show.
Channel 4 has been facing technical difficulties with its programming and website since the weekend and Tuesday night’s Bake Off was the last show to suffer from the disruption.
Viewers took to Twitter, wondering why the sound was distorted throughout the episode, complaining that the voiceovers were difficult to hear and that some background noises were louder than others.
âWhat’s going on with the sound on the voiceover tonight. Really boring, I can barely hear it! One viewer wrote, while another added: “” What’s up with the sound ?! No acknowledgment of that whatsoeverâ¦ so weird.
A third commented: “Glad to see other people think sound is everywhere tonight.” I didn’t know if it was me or if Noel was doing the voiceover from the bottom of a barrel of cookies â
