It was one of the most controversial episodes in My Kitchen Rules history after one team was accused of cheating when failing to fit a cooking brief.

Russians Olga and Valeria were accused of cheating after pan-frying their protein during a roasting competition, leaving the onlooking teams shocked and appalled.

“Oh my god what are they doing?!” Josh said.  “What the f***, I can’t look,” Nic added.

“A roast is in the oven, what is she doing?” Nic shouted. “They’re cheating, that’s a red card isn’t it?”

“I’m just angry just watching them,” Suong interjected. “They’re actually making me feel sick.”

And unfortunately for Olga and Valeria, their quick decision to pan-fry their duck breast during their cook-off after over-cooking their first batch in the oven jeopardised their position in the competition and the girls were sent packing.

“Unfortunately guys it was a roast challenge,” Colin told them, adding “and you barbecued your duck”.

“Olga and Valeria your time in this competition is up,” Pete said.

“I don’t think you’ve seen our best in this competition,” Valeria confessed.

“We’ll go home and try and reinvent ourselves and come back in 10 years,” Olga joked.

“The competition has been richer having you two in it,” Colin said.
