The cookery competition returns for its tenth year. Hundreds of people auditioned, and now sixty amateur cooks are through to battle it out over five weeks of heats, producing some of the most exceptional - as well as some of the most disastrous - food ever seen on the series. In this episode, the first six amateur cooks try to prove to judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace that they have the potential to be the tenth MasterChef champion. Firstly, in a new test, the contestants are asked to cook their calling card, a practiced dish that represents who they are as a cook and showcases their talent. They have just one hour to dazzle the judges with one plate of food that shows just what they can do. They then face the infamous invention test, choosing between two sealed boxes of ingredients, before two amateurs are sent home and the four remaining cooks must cook an impressive menu for some special guests from the show's past. At the end of this, John and Gregg will select two cooks to take the next step in the competition and go through to the first quarter-final.moreless
