Celebrity MasterChef, Series 8 Episode 8 of 18

Duration: 1 hour

As the heat continues, it is elimination day once again and one of the celebrities will be cooking their final dishes for judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace.

The celebrities face paying customers for the first time as they are sent to face lunch service in two London restaurants. Shane Lynch and Brian Capron are paired up and head to Angler, which specialises in seafood. Under the watchful eye of head chef Tony Fleming, Shane and Brian are thrown in at the deep end, as they struggle to cope with a busy service. Miranda and Shappi are sent to Criterion at Piccadilly Circus where the cracks soon begin to appear as they fight to keep on top of customer orders.

Then, it is back to MasterChef headquarters as the celebs stay in their pairs and have to work as a team to create one main course and one dessert in one hour. They have a range of ingredients to choose from including whole rabbit, black pudding and blackberries, and they have to work together to deliver two dishes that will impress John Torode and Gregg Wallace.

In a final test of culinary creativity, the contestants are asked to prepare one dish of their own design in one hour. Drawing inspiration from their own backgrounds and relationships with food, the celebrities work furiously in a last attempt to prove themselves to the judges.

The pressure is on in the Celebrity MasterChef kitchen and at the end of the episode, one celebrity will be going home.
