Duration: 1 hour

Double Michelin-starred Michel Roux Jr and MasterChef judge Gregg Wallace put on the pressure in their search for Britain's next culinary superstar.

The six best chefs from this week's heats return for this week's quarter-final. This is where the battle really begins. First they must prove to Michel and Gregg they have what it takes with a dish of their own invention. Choosing from an amazing selection of ingredients, they must blow the judges away with just one course. Only the best four chefs will go on to showcase their skill to three of the UK's hardest to please restaurant critics. With only an hour and a quarter, the four chefs have to produce a stunning two-course menu - this will determine their MasterChef future.

Only the two most talented chefs will go through to the semi-finals and stand a chance of becoming this year's Professional MasterChef.
