Next Episode of Celebrity MasterChef is
Celebrities compete to win the coveted cookery competition title.
John Torode and Gregg Wallace return with the culinary contest as 20 famous faces from the worlds of showbusiness, music and sport take part, hoping to be crowned this year's champion. Tonight, the first five celebrities, Myles Stephenson, Thomas Skinner, Judi Love, John Barnes and Shyko Amos, take on three difficult challenges.
The four remaining contenders face two more culinary challenges as they battle for a place in the semi-finals. First they are split into two groups for a test of teamwork and communication. One duo has to master John Torode's dim sum selection, and the other his spiced duck noodle broth. Then, the celebrities' team work skills are pushed to the extreme as they are faced with their first Mass Catering Challenge, cooking lunch for over 100 staff at Acton Works - the central hub for repairs and upgrades to London Underground trains.
The battle for the first two semi-final places in this year's competition reaches its climax, as the four remaining celebrities are tasked with cooking a faultless two-course meal that will not only be judged by John Torode and Gregg Wallace, but also by three previous contenders - Olympic long-jumper Greg Rutherford, and TV personalities Vicky Pattison and Dom Parker. All three know what it takes to get through this competition and are in for a treat as their successors pull out all the stops to try secure their semi-final place. For those who don't cut the mustard, the journey ends here.
Actor Phil Daniels, drag artist Baga Chipz, Olympic hockey gold medallist and sports presenter Sam Quek, conductor for the Kingdom Choir Karen Gibson and TV presenter Dominic Littlewood compete in the kitchen. For their first challenge, they head to the MasterChef Market - stocked full of the best quality produce from across the world including meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts, pulses, herbs and spices. The challenge is to invent and then cook one dish to show the judges they have potential. Presented by John Torode and Gregg Wallace.
The four remaining contestants are split into pairs and tasked with cooking the same dish, which must be identical in both appearance and flavour - but there's a catch. They are separated by a wall, meaning the key to the task is communication as one pair recreates John Torode's pan-fried cod wrapped in ham and the other tackles his calf's liver and champ mash. For the second task, the competitors are sent out on their first mass catering challenge, at the McLaren Technology Centre in Woking, Surrey.
