The celebrity cooking competition continues with the second quarter-final, as the battle for a place in the final eight reaches its climax. The remaining contestants must cook a faultless two-course meal, judged not only by John and Gregg but also by two past Celebrity MasterChef champions in the shape of former England rugby captain Phil Vickery, who won in 2011, and reigning champion Emma Kennedy. They are also joined by 2010 finalist Christine Hamilton; all three know exactly what standards to expect.
With their last chances to impress their way to the next round, emotions in the kitchen are running high and the pressure proves too much for some contestants. The celebrity guest judges deliver some frank and cutting responses to some dishes, but others fare much better in the firing line.
Only the best can go through to the final eight and become a step closer to winning the title of Celebrity MasterChef 2013. For those who don't make the grade, the journey ends here.
