The British public loves nothing more than a good cookery show, but there have been some occasions where TV chefs seem to have got it wrong.

Zaleha Kadir Olpin was eliminated from the cooking competition on Monday after judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace complained that her chicken rendang dish didn’t have “crispy skin”.
