Celebrity MasterChef UK 2021 episode 10: In the fourth and final week of heats, the celebrities up for the culinary challenge are TV presenter Kem Cetinay, double gold-medal-winning Paralympian Kadeena Cox, journalist Gavin Esler, Strictly Come Dancing’s Johannes Radebe and actor Michelle Collins.
The first challenge for the five hopefuls is the Under the Cloche test. In front of each celebrity is a cloche, underneath which is an ingredient. Each celebrity has a different ingredient and must create one dish that showcases the ingredient and demonstrates to the judges they have potential. Then it’s the Street Food Challenge. The celebrities must taste a popular street food dish and try to identify the ingredients that are in it. Then they must cook the dish without a recipe, using only their instincts about how it is made. This time, the dish is a Turkish classic, gozleme with baba ganoush.
In the final test of their culinary creativity, the contestants are asked to prepare their Dinner Party Dish – something they would cook to impress if someone was coming round to eat. At the end of this test, one of them will be sent home.
Celebrity MasterChef UK 2021 episode 10
Celebrity MasterChef was devised as a celebrity version of MasterChef Goes Large. The show was screened on BBC One from 2006 to 2011. Originally, 24 celebrities participated in each series with three contestants per episode following the full MasterChef Goes Large test.
In 2011, the programme was moved to a daily daytime slot with 30 episodes screened over six weeks and with only 16 celebrities. Catch-up shows were broadcast on Fridays at 20:30 (30 minutes) and on Saturdays at various times (60 minutes). In 2012, the show moved to BBC Two due to low ratings and returned to an evening 18:30 slot. In 2013, it moved back to BBC One prime time, shown at 20:00. Since 2014, the show has had 20 celebrities competing for the title.
