VIEWERS of Interior Design Masters were quick to slam the show and label it a ‘health and safety nightmare’ during the programme’s latest chaotic challenge.
The BBC One series, fronted by Alan Carr, aired its latest episode which saw the hopefuls attempt to succesfully design a variety of rooms in an Oxfordshire children’s nursery.
Working in teams of three, the aspiring designers were tackled with creating a total of three classrooms in a children’s nursery.
With a brief for each room to be suitable for babies, one for toddlers and another for three- to five-year-olds, they were reminded of the importance of safety during the difficult challenge.
However, many fans were left shocked as many of the contestants appeared to forget this paramount fact as they were left horrified at the number of potential safety hazards that could have resulted in dangerous situations.
Expressing their shock online, one fan wrote: “Good grief, they aren’t gonna let babies and toddlers into these rooms are they?”
Another showcased their shock at one of the walls featuring an abundance of sharp items, as they commented on how irresponsible the contestant’s thought process behind the decision was.
Mocking their decision, they said: “This is my torture wall of sharp metal objects for the kids to poke their eyes out on.”
A third shared: “I see lots of things for kids to potentially bang themselves on or bump into.”
While a fourth penned of the chaos: “DYING at all the safety hazards and the song that gal has recorded, absolute chaos this week.”

As a fifth shared a clip of US talk show host Wendy Williams fainting in her Halloween costume alongside the caption: “The nursery teacher when they walk in and see the number of health and safety risks in these rooms.”
The horrific errors of judgement did not go unnoticed on the show as the judges labelled one area of the nursery a complete ‘no go’ which ultimately resulted in them sending one design hopeful packing.
Judges Michele Ogundehin and Sophie Robinson could not help but be stunned by contestant Buse and her choosing to have tree stumps as chairs for the children.
Michele said: “This is going to be a no go in an active, actual nursery.”
Sophie quickly followed up, adding: “And those tree trunks to me look like little fingers could get stuck in them and they could kind of fall over.”
Michele also questioned why Buse had even “bothered” to create what she had when she would have been aware that it could be a potential splinter-hazard to the children.
Buse’s mistakes were totally unforgivable for the judges and she was swiftly axed for her impractical ideas.
Michele later told the camera that what Buse had produced was wholly inappropriate for the brief and as such, it was her time to go.
