Celebrity MasterChef UK 2021 episode 15: It’s the last of the semi-finals, six celebrity cooks battling for the MasterChef title.
For a place in finals week, the celebrities must produce just one dish of their own design for three of the country’s most feared restaurant critics. Serving food to these masters of the dining room is a daunting task for even the most adept chefs, and the celebrities’ choice of dishes are key to their success. Will their ingredients, flavours and presentation be enough to impress, or will they fall short of the mark and lose their chance to be this year’s champion?
Only the five best cooks will go through to finals week, taking a step closer to being crowned Celebrity MasterChef 2021.
Celebrity MasterChef UK 2021 episode 15
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.
