However, KSI had some difficulties when trying to get his pie out of the pastry case, and decided to turn the whole upside down, with the filling seeping out.
“This might have been a bad decision,” he admitted almost immediately.
As it was served it up for Paul and Prue to judge blind, they said it was inedible due to the raw pastry and would not be able to eat it.
“I don’t even want to taste it,” Prue said, as Paul cut into it.
“Are you not going to try a slice of this?” host Matt Lucas asked.
“No, would you like to try some?” Paul said.
“No, I’m fine,” he insisted.
“That’s just a mush,” Paul added.
KSI had originally tried to pass his offering off as Jade’s, placing it behind her photo on the gingham altar.
“Hun, that’s me. That’s mine,” she said.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” KSI laughed.
“I am not taking the fall for you,” she said.
Inspecting his bake, she teased: “God, it’s almost as bad as your rapping, isn’t it?”
Despite taking some flack for his cherry pie, KSI did manage to earn a coveted Hollywood handshake after the Showstopper, which saw the bakers depicting a scene they could not live without which was constructed using biscuits and meringues.
After jokingly reaching out for Paul’s hand while receiving his verdict, KSI was shocked when the judge returned the gesture, which has become synonymous as the highest form of praise on the Channel 4 show.
Jade was later crowned the episode’s Star Baker, with Paul remarking that the Little Mix star had been the “most consistent over the three challenges”.
The Great Celebrity Bake Off For Stand Up To Cancer continues on Tuesday at 8pm on Channel 4.
