WEEK 28

Celebrity MasterChef

TX4 (60 mins) TBC

Celebrity MasterChef continues with 20 famous faces from the world of show business, sport, comedy and music, all hoping to impress judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace to take the coveted 2020 title.

This week’s celebrities up for the culinary challenge are Actor Phil Daniels, Drag Artist Baga Chipz, Olympic Gold Medalist and Sports Presenter Sam Quek MBE, Conductor for the Kingdom Choir Karen Gibson and TV Presenter Dominic Littlewood.

Their first challenge - 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.

Next it’s out of the frying pan and into the fire of a professional restaurant kitchen, cooking for paying customers in a busy lunchtime service.

Then it’s back to the MasterChef kitchen to impress John and Gregg with their own creations.

Who can handle the pressure and show the judges they have the skills, creativity and flair to progress further in the competition?

 

TX5 – (60mins) TBC

Judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace return for this week’s second installment of Celebrity MasterChef.

After one celebrity was knocked out, tonight the four remaining celebrities face two more culinary challenges, as they battle for a place in the Semi-Finals.

First it’s the pairs test  - where cooking between a wall, in a test of teamwork and communication, each pair is tasked with cooking a crowd-pleasing dish which must be identical in both appearance and flavour.

Tonight one team has the task of recreating John Torode’s pan fried cod wrapped in ham and served with lentils, and the other his calves liver, champ mash and red wine sauce.

Then, the celebrities teamwork skills are pushed to the extreme as they are faced with their first mass catering challenge, cooking lunch for over 100 staff at the McLaren Technology Centre based in Woking, Surrey. There’s pressure and drama aplenty as the two teams battle to cook up a storm for the McLaren team.

 

TX6 - (30 mins)

Tonight, judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace are back as the battle for the first two Semi-Final places in this year’s Celebrity MasterChef competition continues.

The challenge  - to cook a faultless two course meal, not only for the judges, but also three Celebrity MasterChef legends; finalist and TV Presenter Rylan Clark-Neal and champions Sophie Thompson and Kimberly Wyatt and actor Sophie Thompson. All three know what it takes to get through this competition and tonight they are in for a treat as the four celebs push the boat out to secure their Semi-Final place.

Fergie & Andrew: The Duke & Duchess of Disaster

Andrew and Sarah, once upon a time a handsome, loving couple with the world at their feet. Now everything they get involved in is riddled with scandal. The pair seem to have the complete reverse of the Midas touch, as everything they touch turns to disaster. When Sarah Ferguson married Prince Andrew in 1986, she was instantly popular with both the public and the Royal Family. The dashing prince and real-life war hero and the fun, bubbly, redhead seemed all set to live happily ever after. However, nearly four decades later the former golden couple are trapped in their very own never-ending nightmare of PR disasters and blunders. Almost as quickly as they said “I do’’ the romance crumbled. With Prince Andrew away at sea, rumours of Fergie’s unhappiness and infidelities soon surfaced. Fun-loving Fergie soon became free-loading Fergie and a sad figure of fun. Divorce quickly followed and cast aside by the Royal Family Fergie was all on her own – and out of control. She was soon embroiled in PR gaffes, undercover stings by tabloid newspapers and money-making deals to make a quick pound – leaving her reputation in tatters. Andrew didn’t fare much better. The former young prince is now seen by some as a middle-aged petulant bore.  Dogged by his friendship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and money-making deals of his own, it seems they are now both toxic. As Sarah Ferguson told Oprah Winfrey "my life is not a fairy-tale."  She wasn't wrong. So how did it all go so wrong for the couple? And after a rollercoaster life of ups and downs, where will they both end up?

A&E: After Dark

Most patients waiting to be seen by doctors on the night shift at Hull Royal Infirmary wait patiently and quietly. But there are some patients that are incredibly hard to look after. A young man has to be restrained by police officers and security in the ambulance bay after shouting and swearing at medical staff. He was taken into hospital by police, who found him semi-conscious late at night. Once he is assessed by doctors, and once his Mum arrives, security have the job of escorting the angry patient off site.

73-year-old Simon is rushed to hospital with serious injuries after being thrown off his horse and cart at high speed. Simon tried to ignore the injuries for a few hours, and even got back on his horse and cart, but eventually the pain was too much, and called an ambulance. Dr. Biju Cherian and his trauma team assess if there are any potentially life threatening injuries. An initial CT scan reveals multiple broken bones, and once the detailed reports come back, the prognosis is far worse. 

Doctors treat 25-year-old Georgia, who has been knocked out in a charity boxing match. She had entered the white collar boxing match to raise over £400 for a family member with cancer, and was knocked out cold. Lead Consultant Fraser Young wants to rule out the possibility of a brain injury. 

25-year-old Sam attends A&E with his Nan after being punched on the street. X-Rays will reveal if his jaw has been broken. 

81-year-old retired truck driver John fell into a window at home while trying to apply moisturiser to his leg. He’s in danger of losing his arm after lacerating his elbow down to the bone. John laughs and jokes with the staff, and puts on a brave face, but actually, his injuries could be life changing.

Trucking Hell

Merrie pitches up at a golf course to rescue a tanker that has landed its very own hole in one, but before she even arrives, a second tanker goes off course and suffers the same fate.  Merrie must reverse her 32 tonne truck a mile down a pitch-black, boggy track to try and reach the stranded vehicles.  But with every meter she’s in danger of getting stuck herself.

Sean gets the call to help a 44 tonne lorry that has struck a bridge, but when he arrives he’s shocked to find the curtain sider already moved and collapsed down.  It’s not all good news though, as there’s a 10 meter overhang at the back, making it extremely dangerous for surrounding traffic.  Not only that, Sean is going to have to tow 35 meters of vehicle on a 90 mile journey and it’s getting dark.

Things turn sour for Lee when he has to move a broken-down fruit and veg truck from a bus stop.  It’s parked too far forward for him to get in front and it’s on a busy dual carriageway.  Even worse, the automatic gearbox has failed and the truck won’t drive.  Lee needs to find a way to move the veggie vehicle before the groceries go off and he’s left in a stew.

Fluff finds himself with an uphill struggle trying to rescue an artic stuck in the mud on a steep incline.  With traffic speeding over the brow of the hill and a blind bend to contend with, Fluff needs to act fast before the stranded lorry causes a serious accident.  But on such a narrow road, Fluff’s in a tight spot and there’s little room for manoeuvre.
