WEEK 12

Do The Right Thing with Eamonn & Ruth

Eamonn and Ruth present a brand new weekly people consumer entertainment show in front of a live studio audience. Along with reporters; Roman Kemp and Michael Underwood they'll tell extraordinary stories of ordinary people- and Ann Widdecombe will also be in the studio to offer her take on the curse of red tape Britain in 'rules is rules'. This is the show where one minute we'll all be laughing out loud at the ridiculous, then we'll be fighting a social injustice, or campaigning to change the law. There'll be nothing as joyous, emotional, or at times heart-breaking, on television - with big surprises, and amazing reunions in the studio. We will also get out and about each week as Eamonn and Ruth celebrate our unsung heroes, stand up for the man or woman in the street and give a much-needed voice to those of us who feel they are never heard. And a good cause will get the surprise of a lifetime when our mystery millionaire digs deep to make a dream come true.

Tattoo Fixers

Tattoo Fixers: X-Rated

A Tattoo Fixers special that looks back at the lewdest, crudest and downright rudest Tattoos the artists have ever had to deal with.

In the show, Jay helps rid Lewis of a shocking holiday souvenir, Lou censors David’s distasteful dolly tat, Sketch gives Bobby’s bunny a family friendly makeover and Alice helps Miguel quit his hands-on hobby.

Elsewhere, Kieran’s tawdry trunk gets tamed and Dave is relieved of his repulsive reptile.

999 Rescue Squad

The landmark series offers exclusive access to the Yorkshire Ambulance Service’s Hazardous Area Response Team (HART), the first in the UK to allow cameras to follow its medics at work. It’s one of 16 specialist medical units set up after the 7/7 London bombings to treat badly injured patients in extreme environments.

Throughout the series, viewers will gain unprecedented access to the UK’s toughest medics as they race against time to rescue individuals in life-threatening situations. From drive-by shootings, to major chemical leaks and dangerous civil disturbances, HART face it all to ensure the safety of others.

Out of the thousands who applied, this series’ amateur cooks have made it through to compete over four weeks of Heats, ready to produce some of the most inspiring exceptional and unusual food ever seen on the series.

It’s the last week of heats and seven more hopefuls need to pull out all the stops to prove to judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace that they have the potential to rise above the rest to become MasterChef 2018 Champion.

This year sees the return of the MasterChef Market, stocked full of the best quality produce from across the world including meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts, pulses, grains and dairy. The challenge is to invent and then cook one dish using anything from the Market. This time, the featured ingredients include quail, chorizo, bone marrow, cod and squid. They have an hour and 10 minutes to dazzle the judges and prove they are good enough to stay in the competition. The stakes are high in this round and it’s important to choose wisely because after tasting all seven dishes, John and Gregg will decide which four cooks are good enough to stay, while three cooks will be sent straight home.

The four remaining cooks now have one more challenge standing between them and a Quarter Final place. They must cook two courses that will excite not just John and Gregg, but also some very special guests. Some of MasterChef’s most inspiring winners and finalists return to judge the food of this year’s new contenders to the throne. In this Heat, the contestants must attempt to impress MasterChef Champions, Natalie Coleman (2013) and Mat Follas (2009) and Finalist, Jack Lucas (2014). 

After the four hopefuls have cooked, John and Gregg will decide which three contestants deserve to take the next step in the competition and go through to Friday’s Quarter Final. In a competition where only the food matters, these amateurs will need to be good to survive - taking their first step towards being crowned MasterChef Champion 2018.

It’s the last Quarter Final and the six talented Heat winners have no time to rest on their laurels as they continue to fight for their place in the competition.

In the Critic’s Test, the week’s best amateurs will be put through the mill with a seriously daunting test set by one of the country’s toughest food critics. Tonight’s brief has been set by Amol Rajan.

His challenge for the amateur cooks is to make their own interpretation of the British classic, a Full English breakfast.

After cooking their dish based on this brief, the contestants stand before Amol Rajan and judges John and Gregg, to hear, face-to-face, what they think of their dish and whether they’ve managed to rise to the challenge and fulfil the expectations.

At the end of this Quarter Final, the best cooks will go through to Knockout Week, taking another step closer to being crowned MasterChef Champion 2018.
