Finals don’t come much bigger than this: we started with 20 celebrities sweating away in the kitchen in the hope of claiming the prize taken last year when Alexis Conran of The Real Hustle saw off Louise Minchin and Jimmy Osmond at the climax.
This week in Wednesday’s episode we were down to four, with star presenter Ulrika Jonsson, Olympic swimmer Becky Adlington, DJ Dev Griffin and The One
Show and CBBC regular Angellica Bell all battling against each other to make it through to the very last three.
Now that trio must first face the challenge of The Chef’s Table, when a panel of some of the finest gastronomic talents in the country – all with at least one Michelin star – will be the judges. Then it’s back into the MasterChef kitchen, and as John Torode and Gregg Wallace (above) give their verdict, the champion can at last savour the distinctive taste of victory.
