Have you been tuning into this season of The Great American Baking Show? Viewers will be disappointed that they won't get any more of the hit reality show after accusations of sexual misconduct have arisen with one of the judges of the show.

Season 3 of the competition series debuted last week with the second episode set to air. Formerly known as The Great Holiday Baking Show, the reality show had celebrity judges to evaluate the baking creations.

The show was a spin-off to the famed UK series The Great British Bake Off and Paul Hollywood served as a judge with Johnny Iuzzini on the American version.

Celebrity pastry chef, Johnny Iuzzini, is reportedly facing allegations from multiple women accusing him of harassment and abuse.

"In light of allegations that recently came to our attention, ABC has ended its relationship with Johnny Iuzzini and will not be airing the remainder of The Great American Baking Show episodes," an ABC spokesperson said in a statement to Variety. "ABC takes matters such as those described in the allegations very seriously and has come to the conclusion that they violate our standards of conduct. This season's winner will be announced at a later date. Episodes of The Great Christmas Light Fight and CMA Country Christmas will take its place this week and next."

So what are the allegations?
