Viewers Outraged After Fred Sirieix Breaks Kit Kat 'Wrong Way'
We all know that a Kit Kat must be broken lengthways, finger-by-finger - a tried-and-tested method that works regardless of whether you're on the full four-finger bar or the lunchbox staple that's half the size.
However, it seems Fred Sirieix did not get the memo about the beloved chocolate biscuit, having brazenly snapped his the other way round.
In the new Channel 4 series, Sirieix challenges top chefs to try and work out the 'secret techniques and recipes behind some of Britain's best-loved snacks', before creating their own replica.
Chefs Daniel Clifford and Vivek Singh were tasked with recreating the well-known Kit Kat, with the latter saying on Twitter he had 'so much fun' with the challenge.
Make sure you tune in to @Channel4 tonight at 9:15pm to watch @Midsummerchef and I attempt to recreate the famous @KITKAT on SnackMasters with @fredsirieix1 :chocolate_bar: I had so much fun filming this - can't wait for you all to see! pic.twitter.com/YwZ3SluMwN

To introduce the segment, Fred demonstrated the Kit Kat's iconic 'snap', saying to the camera: "This four-finger to salute to Britishness has been part of your culture for longer than the Queen has been on the throne. It deserves a crown of its own."
But people weren't paying attention to anything that he said, as they were too busy being outraged by his offences to confectionary.
One disgruntled viewer tweeted: "F*** me Fred Sirieix is a serial killer. Who the f*** snaps a Kit-Kat like that?"
Another person said: "Noooooooooo!!!! Please don't break a KitKat like that!!! Don't torture me!!! Take my car, my phone, my wallet, just don't snap four Kit Kats like that you MONSTER!!"
Esteemed chef Michel Roux Jr also waded in, tweeting: "Even I know that's wrong."
The two chefs had three weeks to create their own Kit Kats, and while I won't give anything away to anyone who's not had the chance to watch the episode yet, let's just say that all-important 'snap' proved to be make-or-break (geddit?!) for one of the contenders.
Next week, two new competitors will tackle the almighty Monster Munch... Surely there's only so much harm Fred can do with that one?
