The 31-year-old bearded baker lost his cool when his pudding melted after rival contestant Diana Beard took it out of the freezer - leading Mr Watters to throw it in the bin.

This whipped up anger amongst viewers who accused Mrs Beard, 69, of sabotaging the pudding.

She later quit the show due to ill health just after the episode was filmed.

But an Ofcom spokesman said: "Having assessed viewers' complaints received to date, they do not raise issues warranting further investigation under Ofcom's rules."

Mr Watters was voted off the show after presenting the judges with a bin when asked to show his dessert.

But he hinted he could make a comeback after Mrs Beard's departure telling BBC's Newsnight: "You will have to watch next week."
