Celebrity MasterChef UK 2021 episode 2: The first set of heats continue with the four remaining celebrities facing three more culinary challenges as they compete for places in this week’s quarter-final.



The first challenge is a Knowledge and Skills Test. The celebrities face judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace one by one, attempting to demonstrate their ability to identify four types of cheese. They must then make a classic pasta carbonara in just 20 minutes.

At this point in the competition, the celebrities would usually next be sent to work with and learn from a professional chef in their restaurant kitchen. But as this is not currently possible, John and Gregg bring the chef to the celebrities. Nisha Katona, the owner of the restaurant chain Mowgli, challenges each of the four celebrities to cook an Indian recipe from her menu.

Then the celebrities must channel all they have learned from Nisha into one dish that highlights spice to stay in the competition. With just one hour to cook, the celebrities give it their all in a last attempt to prove themselves to the judges. At the end of this test, one of them will be sent home.

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.
