It was German Week on Tuesday's episode which saw the contestants bake dishes originating from Germany.
But some viewers were left unimpressed with co-host Matt's accent, particularly as contestant Jurgen, 56, is German.template type="amp-mustache"">>/amp-minute-media-player">>i-amphtml-sizer">
One viewer wrote: 'Can someone tell Matt Lucas that his German accent is not funny'.ADVERTISEMENTi-amphtml-sizer">
Another wrote: 'Starting to find the mock German accent both irritating and inappropriate. Would this be allowed if it were another nationality?'
Another said: 'Putting on a false German accent for German week isn't funny.'
One viewer added: 'How difficult would it have been to have done some research into how you say "you have 15 minutes left" in German, rather than this outdated "allo allo" mock accent. Genuinely disappointing choice from Channel 4 here.'
Another wrote: 'Jurgen half-heartedly laughing at Matt Lucas' German accent is a metaphor for EU-British relations'.
The episode proved to be a disaster for Freya as she became the latest person to be eliminated from the tent on Tuesday.

>'This is insane!' Great British Bake Off fans fume as vegan baker Freya is booted off the show despite George serving up RAW dough during German Week
In a shock for viewers and contestants, Italian baker Giuseppe was crowned star baker, beating off stiff competition from Jürgen - who was heavily tipped to come out on top.
After Matt announced Freya's fate, the 19-year-old, who is the show's first ever vegan baker, burst into tears and was comforted by her fellow contestants.i-amphtml-sizer">
This week, the remaining bakers were tasked with impressing the judges with their tasty German bakes, with the first round signature challenge seeing them asked to make 24 German biscuits.
While the technical challenge proved a difficult one for all as they had to whip up an eight-layered Prince Regent chocolate cake (prinzregententorte).
But it was the final showstopper challenge in which they had to make yeast leavened cake that saw Freya come unstuck with Paul and Prue calling her wine-soaked fruity cake 'doughy' and 'under-baked', with too much dough compared to topping.ADVERTISEMENTi-amphtml-sizer">
Following her exit, Yorkshire native Freya said that taking part was the 'best experience of my life', before saying how proud she was of her achievements due to her 'lack of experience' with baking.
While Paul also remarked that as someone so young and with the extra difficult task of producing vegan bakes, she should be proud to have made it to week five, noting that she did an amazing job.
