Celebrity Masterchef | Heat 3 Preview (BBC One)

Celebrities from the worlds of music, sport, comedy, drama and show business are heading into the kitchen - the heat is on!



Across six weeks John Torode and Gregg Wallace will be putting their own taste buds through a sensory assault course, as they discover which celebrities have the palate and skill to chop, slice and sizzle their way to lifting the iconic Celebrity MasterChef trophy.



It’s week three of the Celebrity MasterChef heats and the celebrities up for the culinary challenge this week are actors Clarke Peters and Lesley Joseph, former professional footballer Jimmy Bullard, TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher and actor and comedian Richard Blackwood.




The first challenge the five hopefuls face is Under The Cloche. In front of each celebrity is a cloche, underneath which is an ingredient.


Each celebrity has a different ingredient, and along with a larder, must create one dish showcasing that ingredient to demonstrate to the judges they have potential. With nerves running high and just over an hour to create their dish from scratch, the celebrities must think on their feet to impress the judges.



Next up it’s The Street Food Challenge. The celebrities are presented with a street food dish that is popular throughout Japan, which they must taste and then try to identify the ingredients that are in it.



However, the challenge doesn’t end there! Following not a recipe but their instincts, the celebrities are then tasked with having to cook this classic national dish for themselves. Will their attempts impress or will they fall short of the mark?



Then in the final test of culinary creativity, the contestants are asked to prepare their Dinner Party Dish - something they would cook to impress if someone was coming round to eat - 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.



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