Great British Menu, Series 8 Episode 1 of 45

Duration: 30 minutes

Great British Menu is back and the nation's greatest chefs are competing to cook at a special banquet at the Royal Albert Hall to celebrate 25 years of Comic Relief's Red Nose Day and celebrate the unsung heroes of charity work. Not only do they have to deliver a performance on a plate to win, they will also have to put a smile on everyone's face. The chefs will also be set fundraising challenges to raise money for Comic Relief. Also, each week a special guest will also join the judging triumviate.

The curtain raises on London and the South East - newcomers Matt Gillan and Adam Simmonds come face-to-face with returning contender Tom Aikens. Today, it is the starter course and someone will make a schoolboy error. Will Tom make a mistake delivering his complicated chicken dish? Or will it be Adam or Matt, who are creating wildly different pigeon dishes

Great British Menu veteran Richard Corrigan will be judging all week.
