    Celebrities compete in a contest of culinary skill. After six weeks of gruelling challenges, one of the remaining three celebrities will be crowned champion. They must draw on everything they have learned over the past few weeks and cook to the very highest of standards if they are to impress judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace. Their penultimate challenge is the toughest and most daunting of the competition - the Chefs' Table - hosted by Italian chef Francesco Mazzei at L'Anima. The three finalists must deliver food of an exceptional standard to impress the Italian cooking mafia - Antonio Carluccio, Giorgio Locatelli, Theo Randall and Aldo Zilli. Then, it's back to the MasteChef kitchen for the last time, where the three finalists must cook and present a faultless three-course meal for final judgement by John and Gregg. It's their last chance to prove they have what it takes to be crowned Celebrity MasterChef champion by showing true passion and creativity with their dishes.moreless

    Celebrities compete in a contest of culinary skill. As the final week begins, the four remaining cooks continue to battle for the Celebrity MasterChef title. The celebrities' first challenge is their most daunting yet. In the heart of London's Queen Elizabeth Park are two vans from which the celebrities must create a selection of street food dishes for the athletes and Olympians who use the park, to celebrate the park's opening to the public. Each van has a theme - one Asian and one Central and South American. The celebrities split into two teams, and each van's team must produce four different street food dishes. Then, in their last challenge as a quartet, the celebrities must cook two dishes of their own design for three of the country's most feared restaurant critics for a place in the final three.moreless

    Celebrities compete in a contest of culinary skill. It's the last of the semi-finals and the six remaining celebrity cooks continue to battle for the MasterChef title. The celebrities' initial challenge is a MasterChef first - a relay invention test. Split into two teams of three, both teams must create one dish between them using a chicken and a range of vegetables, herbs and spices. Each team member has 20 minutes to make their contribution to the dish without communicating with one another - so each cook must attempt to decipher what the dish is meant to be from the clues left behind by their teammate. Next the celebrities have to showcase their own style and flair with pastry. They must each create one savoury and two sweet items for afternoon tea. Finally it's back to the MasterChef kitchen to create one exceptional dish inspired by someone close to them.moreless
