Episode 17

Michel Roux Jr, Monica Galetti, and Gregg Wallace start to apply the pressure in their search for a culinary talent exceptional enough to take the coveted title, as semi-final week begins.

Only the best eight chefs remain in the competition and after four weeks of gruelling tests set to prove their technique and flair, they now face one challenge: to impress veteran diner Gregg Wallace. Their MasterChef future depends on their ability to serve up one show-stopping dish that will impress the discerning judge; after tasting their food Gregg will decide which two chefs will leave the competition.

To win Gregg over, the final eight will have to cook like never before. They have just two hours to serve up their strongest dish ever, showcasing their skill, flair and ability to deliver perfect flavours, as well as presenting a final plate that will blow Gregg away. The stakes are high for the chefs who must fight for one of the six places in the next round. They will now have to fire on every cylinder to stay in the competition.

Only the six best chefs will go on to battle for the title of Professional MasterChef.
