Duration: 1 hour

Legendary two Michelin starred chef Michel Roux Jr and Masterchef dining expert Gregg Wallace are joined by the formidable Monica Galetti, as they begin their search for a professional with the talent to become Britain's next culinary superstar.

In tonight's show, the remaining five chefs from Monday's heat return to face Monica and Gregg in a skills test before the judges must decide who will be eliminated. Only the best four chefs will cook for legendary Michel Roux Jr.

For the skills test, Monica and Gregg ask each chef to make honeycomb and then mould it into three different dessert decorations. With only 15 minutes to show off their skill and creativity they have to work fast. At the end, one of them will be leaving the competition.

It is up to the four remaining chefs to step it up for Michelin starred legend Michel Roux Jnr. Michel cooks a classic recipe of Epigrams De Sole; dover sole stuffed with lobster and sealed with bread crumbs. They will have just one hour to get to grips with this extravagant dish. Nerves are palpable as the chefs battle to produce a perfect plate for Michel. Then, they must prepare their own classic dish for Michel and Gregg in one hour. With only three places up for grabs, they must pull out all the stops.

Only the best three chefs will go through to the quarter final and move a step closer to winning the title of Professional MasterChef.
