Some have criticised the show for setting a bad example for children, after the comedian was seen hiding in a fridge.
Despite Great British Bake Off's move to Channel 4, it's been widely well-received by audiences old and new.
But some fans weren't happy with a skit which involved new presenters Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding, seeing the Mighty Boosh star coming out of a fridge.

Despite the moment clearly being scripted for comedic value, some didn't take kindly to the gag online, slamming Channel 4 for setting a bad example to children.

Really disappointed that bake off just showed a presenter being shut in a fridge! Not a great child safety tip!!— Lorraine Howie (@Loz232) September 12, 2017
It's not all been bad, however, with a lot of love being shown for the star over the weeks.
Noel Fielding's vibes are so calming and reassuring I feel like he'd be a good person to talk about life with at 4am on a rooftop u kno— zannah (@notjustblondee) September 5, 2017
