The returning contestants were tasked with creating Anthony Hart's Chocolate Oasis dessert, a technical, delicate and sculptural dish.

As she was preparing some of the thin layers of dark chocolate, Minoli appeared to be creating shapes that were a little rude, with one Twitter user joking: "Minoli transformed a male appendage into a dessert."

The chef revealed to Yahoo Lifestyle she can definitely see what people saw when they were watching last night.

"Yeah, from the top they kind of looked like fidget spinners, but I definitely see what everyone else was seeing now," she laughed. 

"And also I realised I must have eaten that dessert that we all got to try at the start very quickly because I actually thought it only had three sides to it, but there were four, yeah so I just got that wrong.

"The shape was way off, totally phallic shape! Yeah... But you know what, call a spade a spade, everyone was like, 'Um, is that what I'm seeing?' and I'm like, 'Yeah, yeah...' like, unintentionally, of course! But yeah, a bit of fun!"

Taking to Twitter, Minoli joked on Tuesday night: "My shapes look kind of like [eggplant emoji]."

Speaking of being eliminated so early in the competition, the contestant said it was "really devastating", but when she found out she could get a second chance she was ecstatic.

"There was a part of me that's like I need to just get back in, because I had too many people being like, 'What the hell happened?' So yeah, I was so glad that I got back in."

Fans loved Minoli's excited reaction when she found out she had earned her place back in the competition.

"I don't actually know what I would have done if I didn't get back in, I would have probably cried," she said. 

"It was such an awesome group to cook with, we had the best day, honestly, and I think that's why I felt so comfortable to jump up and down like I did.

"It was funny to see what my face looked like when I was staring at that apron because I was like please say my name. Please, please, please. And when it was, I lost it, and I, yeah, the one thing I told myself was I just have to remain me the entire time, and if people like it, they like it and if they don't, they don't. But that was just genuinely like everything I felt from the inside coming out. So, I was just so excited."
