Lisa Maxwell, AJ Pritchard, Jay Blades, Stella Parton and Clara Amfo try to impress judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace as the final heat week gets under way.
The hunt for a champion continues as the final five celebrities are welcomed to the challenge in the last of the heats. Trying to impress judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace are actor Lisa Maxwell, professional dancer AJ Pritchard, furniture restorer Jay Blades, international recording artist Stella Parton, and DJ and broadcaster Clara Amfo.
The first challenge for the five hopefuls is the Mystery Box, the infamous test of imagination and creativity. The contestants must use the ingredients in the box, which include pork loin, trout, cauliflower, raspberries and white chocolate, to create one dish. With nerves running high and just 50 minutes to create something from scratch, the celebrities must think on their feet to impress the judges.
The celebrities are then split into two groups to take on the challenge of cooking for the first time in a restaurant kitchen, preparing dishes for paying customers. Lisa, Clara and Stella head to the Swan at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, which showcases modern British cuisine, while AJ and Jay are sent to Sophie's Soho, a steakhouse with an open kitchen and a feature fire pit.
For the final test of culinary creativity it's back to the MasterChef kitchen, as the contestants are asked to prepare a two-course menu of their own design in just one hour. The celebrities work furiously in a last attempt to prove themselves to the judges, because at the end of this test one of them is sent home.
