There wasn’t anything delicate about this, and the panel were in conflict. Chips wrapped in warm newspaper, meaty broth and malty drink tangled with turpentine and oily engines. Tea break continued with sweet dough balls covered in dark chocolate sauce, then espresso with cinnamon sprinkles. The bad boys broke off their cement mixing to have a cheeky shot of tequila with the salt and lime. They nibbled twiggy crisps, crunchy peanut brittle and garibaldi biscuits and put their tools down for the day. The panel couldn’t agree if the builders went wild camping or to a coal cellar.
