Great British Menu, Series 7 Episode 17 of 45

Great British Menu continues as the nation's greatest chefs battle for the chance to cook a glittering Olympic banquet.

This summer, another chapter will be added to Britain's sporting history when London hosts the Summer Olympic Games. Great British Menu: The Olympic Feast will give some of our greatest chefs a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a very special feast to celebrate the games coming to our shores and showcase contemporary British cooking at its absolute best.

With a glittering guest list, including Olympic VIPs Roger Black, Tessa Sanderson and Dan Greaves, the Olympic Feast will honour the hopes and achievements of our sporting heroes, willing them on to success, and be a glorious celebration of our country's extraordinary culinary talents.

The chefs' task is to create a menu that captures the Olympic spirit - food that is breathtaking and awe-inspiring. Every great Olympian pushes their discipline on to new levels of excellence and that's the challenge for the 2012 Great British Menu chefs: can they create world-class, groundbreaking food that will celebrate the Olympic ideal?

Here, it is the battle of the Northern Ireland chefs - returning contenders Chris Fearon, Chris Bell and Niall McKenna.

All of them are determined to knock out their rivals in the race to the banquet. Here, they cook their fish course; which one will prevail? Will it be Chris Bell's red wine poached turbot and bourguignon of snails, Niall McKenna's turbot with asparagus, blood orange sauce and rose powder, or Chris Fearon's skate rings?

Great British Menu veteran Richard Corrigan decides who goes through to the judges and who is going home.
