Speaking to TV WEEK in the wake of the cheating scandal, Sharon and Ankur remained confident that what they did wasn’t cheating.

“We weren’t telling the other contestants we Googled it, because – as has been made clear by all the contestants – it’s a competition and it was time for us to finally get competitive too,” Sharon said.

“We knew the wine well and have been presented it many times. We knew it wasn’t cheating, because it wasn’t against the rules to search it.”

According to Sharon and Ankur, they eventually told the teams they had the tasting notes and the others agreed it wasn’t cheating.
