After five weeks of tough competition it is the start of the final week on Celebrity MasterChef, and from 16 celebrities just three outstanding cooks remain but only one can be crowned champion. Those three celebrities begin by facing two challenges that test their versatility.
First, in the MasterChef kitchen, they must face the notorious invention test once again when they have just one hour to create a mouth-watering dish centred around the humble chicken. Can they demonstrate to John and Gregg how much their cooking has improved from their very first invention test?
Next, invention skills are stepped up a gear when the celebrities travel to the set of the BBC drama New Tricks, now in its ninth series, to cater lunch for a 90-strong cast and crew. Not only must they create the lunch menu and prepare all the ingredients on a very tight schedule, but they must also make sure there is enough food to go around - all in the challenging confines of a mobile catering truck.
In this first challenging day of the final week, do the remaining three celebrities really know what they have let themselves in for and are they prepared for the week ahead?
