Bake Off's Diana claims she was "stitched up"

The Great British Bake Off contestant blamed by some for another's exit has claimed to have been "stitched up" by the way the BBC programme was edited.

Diana Beard, 69, said she had been made a "scapegoat" after being shown to play a part in Iain Watters' elimination.

Watters exited the show after throwing his melted Baked Alaska in a bin.

Yet some viewers have since called for his reinstatement, suggesting Beard engineered his dismissal by taking his ice cream out of the freezer.

Speaking on BBC Radio Shropshire, Beard - the oldest contestant to have appeared on the BBC ratings winner - cried foul over how Wednesday's episode was edited.
