However, when viewers tuned in, they were shocked to see that three contestants hadn’t returned to lend a hand.

Like Aaron Willis, Sophie Wilding and Francesca Kennedy Wallbank were all absent from the latest episode of the BBC series.

The missing contestants saw viewers flock to social media to wonder why they weren’t there, with one saying ‘For real where’s Aaron though’ on Twitter.

While another said “Aaron and Sophie are MIA. How did they decide who came back and who didn’t come back for the last episode? I wish Aaron was back rather than Harry.”

But Aaron chimed in, speaking on his Instagram page saying “To be completely honest it was pure selfish reasons, I got fired and had to be back home a week later to make the final. Now I’ve always been aware that if I were to go to the finals I would have missed mine and Vicki’s birthday and we always said if we missed the birthday we would know you’re in the finals.

“Now I’ve been away from my wife and kids for 10 weeks and when I got fired I missed my family so much and obviously wanted to spend more time with them. So the thought if I went back to home for another week or spending quality time with Vicki and spending my birthday with my family will always be priorities in this regard.

“So sorry I’m not there but I spent the birthday with my wife, and I’m in the audience for Your Hired so watch out for that. But the girls are absolutely smashing it tonight and having one really good, really worthy finalists out there. Enjoy the show because trust me, it’s an absolute belt, thank you.”

Francesca Kennedy Wallbank also gave the reason for her absence by sharing a photo of herself soaking up the sun on a yacht, saying: “For everyone asking if I’m back in the finals tonight, unfortunately I couldn’t make it as I had already booked a well deserved holiday.”

Although two of the missing contestants were able to share the reasons, Sophie has yet to share hers.
