Celebrity MasterChef returns for its thirteenth series, with 20 familiar faces from the world of show business and music, all hoping to follow in the footsteps of last year’s champion Angellica Bell and take the 2018 title.
This second heat week sees five more celebrities enter the MasterChef kitchen, and tonight they will undertake three tough culinary challenges in a bid to prove themselves to judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace. This week battling for the crown are actor John Partridge, TV personality Spencer Matthews, TV presenter and singer Frankie Bridge, TV presenter Jean Johansson and actress and singer Anita Harris.
The first challenge for the five hopefuls is the Mystery Box; the infamous test of imagination and creativity. The contestants must use the ingredients in tonight’s box, which include lamb rump, whole mackerel, mozzarella, aubergine, apricots and filo pastry to create just one dish. With nerves running high and just fifty minutes to create something from scratch, the celebrities must think on their feet to impress the judges.
The celebrities are then split into two groups to take on the challenge of cooking for the first time in a restaurant kitchen, preparing dishes for paying customers.
Anita, John and Jean head to Novikov, an authentic Italian restaurant in London’s Mayfair, while Spencer and Frankie are sent to Baluchi, a Pan Indian restaurant that showcases modern dishes with authentic Indian flavours.
In the final test of culinary creativity, it’s back to the MasterChef kitchen, as the contestants are asked to prepare a two-course menu of their own design in just one hour. The celebrities work furiously in a last attempt to prove themselves to the judges, because at the end of this test one of them will be going home.
Celebrity MasterChef returns for its thirteenth series, with 20 familiar faces from the world of show business and music all hoping to take the 2018 title.
This week’s heat continues with the four remaining celebrities facing three more culinary challenges, as they battle for a place in the Semi-Finals.
Tonight’s first challenge is the new Pairs Challenge where the four celebrities are split into two teams of two. Each team is tasked with cooking the same dish. Both plates must be identical in both appearance and flavour, but there is a catch. In-between each pair there is a wall. The only way for the celebrities to successfully produce identical plates is by communicating with their team mate through the wall.
The celebrities are then sent out on their first mass catering challenge. Remaining in their teams they will have to make lunch for over 100 members of staff at Chessington World of Adventures
With an array of ingredients including diced lamb, chicken legs and pollack as well as a range of fruit and vegetables, the two teams must devise, prepare and serve the lunch, catering for various tastes, creating meat based, vegetarian and dessert dishes in volume. In the heat of the kitchen the celebrities will have to rely on teamwork skills as well as their culinary ones to triumph.
Then it’s back to the MasterChef kitchen as the battle for a semi-final place reaches its climax. The four celebrities must now cook a faultless two course meal that will not only be judged by John and Gregg, but also last year’s Celebrity MasterChef Finalists Dev Griffin and Ulrika Jonsson and Champion Angellica Bell (2017), all former survivors of this tough challenge.
With their last chances to impress for a semi-final place, emotions in the kitchen are running high, and the pressure proves too much for some contestants. The celebrity judges deliver some frank and cutting responses to some of the dishes, but others fare much better.
Only the best two contestants can earn a semi-final place and come one step closer to winning the title of Celebrity MasterChef 2018. For those who don’t make the grade, the journey ends here.
