Uh oh!

Channel 4 has received complaints over it's showing of Great British Bake Off, for the second week in a row.

Viewers complained about the sound throughout the show, as the bakers struggled with Biscuit Week.

Channel 4 has been dealing with technical difficulties across their programmes and website since the weekend and this week's Bake Off was the latest show to suffer from the disruption.

Viewers took to Twitter, questioning why the sound was distorted throughout the episode, complaining that the voiceovers were hard to hear and some of the background noises were louder than others.

Bake Off have received complaints for Tuesday night's episode.

It was biscuit week on this week's Great British Bake Off, but it wasn't only the bakers that were having difficulties during the show.

The latest episode was hit with complaints as viewers complained about the sound throughout the show.

Channel 4 have been dealing with technical difficulties across their programmes and website since the weekend and Tuesday night's Bake Off was the latest show to suffer from the disruption.

Viewers took to Twitter, questioning why the sound was distorted throughout the episode, complaining that the voiceovers were hard to hear and some of the background noises were louder than others.

The technical issues came as a result of a fire at the Broadcast Centre in West London at the weekend, which has affected equipment and caused disruption over the past few days.

In a statement, Red Bee Media, who play out the channels and adverts, explained: "We confirm that all staff at our Broadcast Centre in West London were safely evacuated following activation of the fire suppression systems.

"As a result of this incident and the automatic safety measures set in motion at the time, several services originating from the Broadcast Centre have been disrupted.

"We are continuing to work to restore all services and remedy any issues caused by this incident."

The show also received complaints during its premiere week over the number of commercial breaks and streaming issues on All 4.
