Some claimed they had to leave the room after Christian designed a clown outfit

Cristian decided to go for humour rather than horror by designing a clown outfit, however, BBC viewers were left frightened by the costume.

As a result, several took to social media to say the outfit was too “creepy”, while another admitted they had to “leave the room.”

The contestants were told by host Sara Pascoe: “The judges would like you to make a Halloween costume for a nine-year-old – as if children weren’t scary enough.

Rather than aiming for scariness though, Cristian admitted he was going for fun.

“Today we are making a clown,” he announced, before adding: “A funny clown, so not a spooky one.”

The multi-coloured outfit featured oversized organza cuffs and a hula hoop stitched inside to give the waist a rounded look.

As he began to piece together the costume, viewers quickly expressed their fear of clowns.

Taking to Twitter, one person penned: “Clowns are not fun, they’re serial killers in disguise.”

Echoing their comments, someone else said: “Is there actually a difference between funny clowns and scary clowns? All clowns are just creepy.”

While a third remarked: “I feel my coulrophobia coming on. Might have to leave the room. I’d take a bat over a clown any day.”

When it was time for the costumed to be judged, Cristian’s impressed the experts.

Fashion designer Patrick Grant clearly wasn’t afraid of clowns, as he asked: “Who knew clowns were so funny? It just makes me laugh and smile looking at him.”

The Great British Sewing Bee continues on Wednesday from 9pm on BBC One.
