Episode 4

MasterChef judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace have an awe-inspiring challenge for the contestants as the search continues for this year's best amateur cook.

The remaining 12 amateur cooks have a baptism of fire as they face the ultimate test: cooking for MasterChef winners and finalists from all the past series. In their first-ever restaurant style service, the pace and pressure is immense for the amateurs who must work under Head Chef John Torode, and deliver their own food to the highest standard. With such professional palates in the MasterChef dining room, the stakes are high and the tension palpable.

Only the best will survive in the battle to become the next Masterchef Champion.
