Celebrity MasterChef 2017 E06 (720p HD, soft Eng subs)
The heat continues with the four remaining celebrities fighting for a place in the semi-finals. The first challenge they face is a knowledge and skills test, where they have to face John Torode and Gregg Wallace one by one and demonstrate their ability to identify a tray of ingredients, three root vegetables and three birds before being asked to cook a duck breast with swiss chard and a caper butter sauce in just 12 minutes.
The celebrities are then split into teams and are sent out on a mass-catering challenge, which sees them making lunch for over 120 members of staff and players at The Oval cricket ground, home to Surrey County Cricket Club. With an array of ingredients, including beef mince, chicken supreme and sea bream, and a range of fruit and vegetables, the two teams must devise, prepare and serve the lunch, catering for various tastes while creating meat-based, vegetarian and dessert dishes in volume.
It is then back to the MasterChef headquarters as the battle for semi-final places reaches its climax. The celebrities must now cook a faultless two-course meal that will not only be judged by John and Gregg but also by reigning Celebrity MasterChef champion Alexis Conran (2016) and finalists Louise Minchin (2016) and Sam Nixon (2015).
Only the best two contestants can earn a semi-final place and come one step closer to winning the title of Celebrity MasterChef 2017.
