Finals Dessert

Great British Menu, Series 8 Episode 44 of 45

It is finals week and 24 of the nation's finest chefs have been whittled down to just eight. Over the course of four hour-long shows they will battle it out in the kitchen for the chance to get a dish to the Comic Relief Banquet.

The brief called for the chefs to bring out their funny sides. Their food not only had to be gastronomic, but a performance on a plate, witty and fun. Their prize: to get a dish on the menu at a special banquet at the Royal Albert Hall celebrating 25 years of Comic Relief's Red Nose Day.

The charity has raised more than 800 million pounds, changing the lives of people in both Africa and the UK through the power of entertainment.

It is judgement day as the chefs not only learn the top three desserts but the judges announce the winning menu. Fast Show writer and performer Charlie Higson helps judge the puddings. Prue Leith, Oliver Peyton and Matthew Fort decide on the four winning dishes, but there is a problem - they are torn between two dishes for one of the courses.
