This film follows the lives of three extraordinary young people as they come to terms with their own unique transgender journeys. We reveal the emotional evolving parent child relationships, shifting family dynamics and the many challenges on the road to becoming who they really are.

MasterChef

Semi-Finals

Episode 18 - Monday 2nd April, 7:30pm

MasterChef continues with its fourteenth series, and fifty-six amateur cooks have been whittled down to the most promising nine. All of them have just one goal: to lift the coveted MasterChef trophy.

Last week, three contestants were guaranteed a Semi-Finals place. Now, the best six remaining cooks are going head-to-head to fight for their place alongside them in the Semi-Finals.

Judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace are joined by renowned Chef Theo Randall. Previously awarded a Michelin star when he was Head Chef at the River Café Theo is now the proprietor of Theo Randall at The Intercontinental

The six amateur cooks are set a brief by Theo to create one outstanding dish inspired by Italian cuisine and they have just 90 minutes to prep and cook it.

At this stage in the competition, the judge’s expectations are sky high, and only the five best cooks will keep their place and join the other three Semi-Finalists. This is the six’s final chance to prove they’ve got what it takes to stay in the competition and take a step closer to being crowned MasterChef Champion 2018. For one of them the dream will be over.

Episode 19 - Wednesday 4th April, 8pm

Tonight, the MasterChef Semi-Finals continue with a spectacular challenge, as the eight remaining best cooks in the competition head to RAF Halton in Aylesbury to celebrate 100 years of the RAF’s formation.  

The Semi-Finalists will be split in to two team of four and face the enormous challenge of running their own kitchens in two specially constructed catering tents. Each team will have to create two main courses and a dessert to feed 120 veterans, serving airmen and new recruits for a special lunch that celebrates the centenary.

With less than four hours to deliver, organisation and teamwork is essential for success. It’s vital the two teams perform at their absolute best and produce a lunch worthy of the occasion, because after judging their food, John and Gregg pick the weakest team to return to the MasterChef kitchen, where they must cook-off against each other in a special Invention Test.

The contestants must create a stunning dish from the leftover produce from the previous challenge, which includes Guinea fowl carcasses, salmon scraps, vegetables, fruit, and cheeses.

With one more contestant going home after this, the battle is on to stay in the competition and take another step towards being crowned MasterChef Champion 2018.
