The five celebrities up for the MasterChef challenge this week are model and TV personality Penny Lancaster, singer and X-Factor winner Megan McKenna, broadcaster Melanie Sykes, fashion designer and Great British Sewing Bee judge Patrick Grant, and Britain’s Got Talent finalist and award-winning comedian Nabil Abdulrashid.
The first challenge for the five hopefuls is Under the Cloche. In front of each celebrity is a cloche, underneath which is an ingredient. Each celebrity has a different ingredient and must show the judges their potential by creating a dish that showcases that ingredient.
In the Street Food Challenge, the celebrities are presented with a popular street food dish. They must taste it and try to identify the ingredients that are in it. Then they must cook the dish for themselves without a recipe. This time the dish is Vietnamese.
Then in the final test of culinary creativity, the contestants are asked to prepare their Dinner Party Dish – something they would cook to impress someone coming round to eat. 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 continues Monday at 9pm on BBC One.
