It is dessert day and with just one place remaining at this year’s banquet feast, each chef is giving everything they have got for a chance to say thank you to the heroic NHS staff. All the chefs have significantly reworked or reinvented their desserts since the regional heats, proving that they will do everything they can in a bid for that final winning spot.
The judges are joined by guest judge Jacqueline Dunkley-Bent, head of maternity, children and young people for NHS England. Having been a midwife for over 30 years, she has overseen the safe delivery of thousands of babies and has received an OBE for her dedication to the profession. After the fourth and final spot on the banquet menu has been awarded, there is a surprising announcement for the chefs who have made it through.
