Episode 8

MasterChef judges, John Torode and Gregg Wallace, continue their quest to find this year's best amateur cook as they enter the world of celebrity catering.

John and Gregg ask the remaining seven cooks to step up a level in their first fine dining challenge and prepare a stand out dish for the critical palate of world class celebrity caterer Bertie de Rougemont. As the contestants try to elevate their presentation and refine their flavours, the tension is palpable in the MasterChef kitchen.

Then, the amateurs hit the road for their next challenge: feeding the entire cast and crew of the award-winning drama series Merlin. Each contestant must prepare two items for a lavish buffet that will be the centrepiece for the cast's wrap party hosted by legendary actor Richard Wilson to mark the end of months of arduous filming. With so much food to prepare, stress levels are high as they rush to finish and set up the elaborate supper as the crew and cast complete their last take.

Only the most talented will continue their journey to become MasterChef Champion 2011.
