Celebrity MasterChef, Series 8 Episode 11 of 18

Duration: 1 hour

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

The celebrities serve paying customers for the first time as they are sent to two London restaurants. Joe Calzaghe and Speech Debelle are sent to Spice Market, which specialises in dishes influenced by the street food of south east Asia. Joe discovers that a boxing ring is a walk in the park compared to a red-hot griddle. Matthew Hoggard and Les Dennis head to Boisdale in Canary Wharf - one of them takes to it like a duck to water, whereas the other is in danger of drowning under the number of orders.

Back at MasterChef headquarters, they 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 shellfish, quails eggs and strawberries, and they have to work together to deliver two stand-out dishes.

In a final test of culinary creativity, the contestants are asked to prepare a dish of their own design in an 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.
