Great British Menu, Series 7 Episode 45 of 45

Duration: 1 hour

This year's Great British Menu competition has been the most fiercely fought yet, with more top chefs than ever from across the country battling it out in the kitchen to cook at the fabulous Olympic feast. The winners have been announced and this final programme follows the successful chefs in the run-up to the banquet, as they make the painstaking preparations for what is one of the most important meals they will ever cook.

The feast is being hosted by British Olympic legend Sir Steve Redgrave at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich; the four winning chefs prepare an outstanding four-course menu for a truly Olympian guest list including Amy Williams, Sir Matthew Pinsent, Baroness Grey-Thompson, Ade Adepitan, Gail Emms, Dame Kelly Holmes, Jonathan Edwards, Mark Lewis Francis, Sarah McPhee, Duncan Goodhew, Mary King, Steve Backley and London 1948 Olympian Tommy Godwin.

The pressure on the chefs to deliver is immense and even the Great British Menu judges join in the preparations to ensure that the banquet goes according to plan.
