Celebrities compete to win the coveted cookery competition title
Celebrities compete in a contest of culinary skill. After four weeks of intense competition, the best cooks compete in the first of the semi-finals. The celebrities begin with their toughest challenge yet - in a freezing cold field and limited to the use of marquee kitchens, they must cook a feast for 70 guests. Split into two teams, it's a race against the clock as they must design and create four mouthwatering dishes each (meat, fish, vegetarian and dessert) from a selection of ingredients including saddle of lamb, hake, whole salmon and quail. Next it's back to the MasterChef kitchen, where they face an Invention Test with a difference. Each contestant is given their favourite ingredient to work with and, along with a well-stocked larder, has 90 minutes to create a dish that celebrates their chosen ingredient to keep them in the competition. Favourite ingredient choices range from mackerel to scallops, chicken breasts to chicken thighs and haggis.
It's the second semi-final, and the remaining six celebrity cooks continue to battle for the MasterChef title. For their first task, each of the six benches in the MasterChef kitchen contains the ingredients and recipe to make a different classic dish from around the world, including chicken kiev, a Portuguese fish stew, lamb koftas and queen of puddings. To stay in the competition, the celebrities must pick a bench at random and then cook the dish that's on it. Next, the remaining five celebrities face their most daunting challenge yet - to prepare a five-course dinner for the Chelsea Pensioners in celebration of HM the Queen's 90th birthday. However, they won't be cooking their own dishes. They will be cooking the menu of Nigel Haworth of Michelin-starred Northcote Manor. Finally it's back to the MasterChef kitchen, where the final five must each create one exceptional dish that celebrates the life of someone important to them.
In the first show of Finals Week, the four contestants are whittled down to three. The celebrities' first challenge is their most daunting yet - John's Palate Test. John cooks a highly complex dish - Korean fried chicken with Asian salad - which the celebrities have to taste and then identify the ingredients in. They then have one hour and fifteen minutes to recreate the dish themselves. Then, in their last challenge as a quartet, the celebrities must cook two dishes of their own design for four of the country's most feared restaurant critics for a place in the final three. Will their ingredients, flavours and presentation be enough to impress, or will they fall short of the mark and lose their chance to be Celebrity MasterChef?
Celebrities compete in a contest of culinary skill. It's the Celebrity MasterChef final. Twenty celebrities started the battle to be crowned MasterChef Champion 2016 - now only three remain. After six weeks of gruelling challenges, one of the remaining three contestants will be crowned champion. Just two tough challenges stand between them and the title. Their penultimate challenge is the Chef's Table, hosted by Michelin-starred chef Atul Kochhar at Benares. The finalists must deliver food of an exceptional standard to impress some of the best chefs in the country. As they battle to master new techniques and unfamiliar ingredients, will they hold their nerve or is the pressure too much? Then it's back to the MasterChef kitchen for the last time, where the finalists must cook and present a three-course meal for John and Gregg. It's their last chance to prove they have what it takes. Who amongst the finalists is the true cooking star and worthy of a place in the hall of fame?
