GREAT British Bake Off viewers have complained to Ofcom again over Matt Lucas's "sexual innuendos".
Fans of the beloved baking series were upset after Matt made jokes that they considered "smutty" and "disgusting".
There was 15 GBBO viewers who felt so strongly that they complained to broadcast regulator Ofcom after watching the show on 13 Oct.
The Little Britain comedian made a cheeky quip to one of the contestants Linda Rayfield.
The baker was struggling to prove her dough saying it was "not as big as she would like it."
The funnyman was on hand to lend a little advice, joking: "Maybe if you stroke it it will get a bit bigger."
Linda cheekily replied: "It might do, generally works."
The innuendos didn't stop there as the star later joked that Prue Leith had a "pruegasm" after trying one of the contestant's showstopper challenge cakes.
Prue enjoyed a mouthful of contestant Hermine's chocolate cake – she gave it her seal of approval with a little shudder and said it was "delicious".
Matt couldn't help but make a cheeky one-liner, saying: "So we call it a Pruegasm."
But not all viewers thought Matt's humour was appropriate for the family baking show.
One furious fan wrote: "Not really enjoying Matt Lucas on GBBO, his humour is too smutty."
Another posted: "Matt Lucas gets to make fun of women's bodies and subject us to his balls jokes #notfunny #misogyny."
A third tweeted: "Matt Lucas is disgusting. I am so tired of him making sexual jokes out of everything."
Another said: "Matt Lucas is ruining the Great British Bake Off for me. It's not even funny anymore."
However, some viewers were delighted with Matt's light-hearted banter and said it was all in humour.
One wrote: "I knew I was going to miss Sandi Toksvig but I am so in love with Matt Lucas. His chemistry with Noel Fielding is so good."
Some fans couldn't help chuckle at Matt's "Pruegasm" gag, another posted: "Did I just hear #pruegasm by Matt Lucas 🤣."
A third posted: "Matt Lucas was made for GBBO."
Another fan said that Matt's jokes were halirious, they wrote: "Matt on GBBO is everything! I can't stop laughing 🤣🤣."
This isn't the first time that the comedian has be at the centre of complaints – his controversial show opener that saw him mock PM Boris Johnson has sparked 339 Ofcom complaints.
He performed a pitch-perfect parody of Boris at the start ofthe series – moments after the PM addressed the nation for real.
Matt roped in co-host Noel Fielding and judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith as he mocked government U-turns.
Wearing a blonde wig, Matt told viewers: "If you must bake in a tent, bake in a tent. But please don't bake in a tent.
"And we are asking people to use common sense with regards to the distribution of hundreds and thousands."
While some have complained, lots of other viewers were delighted with the skit, with one calling it the "perfect opening" to the long-awaited series.
Viewers were also horrified over "insensitive" jokes about small hands and Paul Hollywood saying rainbow bagels 'represent the NHS' – which also received 70 Ofcom complaints.
Fans were upset at Paul, who failed to recognise the importance of the rainbow flag to the LGBTQ+ community during the technical bake.
Last week's opening saw hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas cheekily mock the importance of the "Hollywood Handshake", which contestants can only dream of receiving if their bake hits the mark.
After Noel hilariously shook Matt's hand with Paul's 'stolen' handshake, the baking star appeared on screen with two small prosthetic hands.
He said to a worried Noel and Matt: "You haven't been playing with my handshake have you?
"Because if you have you'll get this and this alright?" he warned as he revealed his doll-like hands.
However at the time, the sketch fell flat with some and saw 16 viewers complaining to Ofcom that it was insensitive to people with Poland Syndrome.
Poland Syndrome is a rare developmental disorder in which those affected are born with missing or underdeveloped muscles on one side of the body.
