What time is the MasterChef final on TV?
The last episode of the current series of MasterChef starts at 8:30pm Friday 12th May on BBC1.
Who are the contestants?
After Lorna left us on Tuesday night and Alison departed on Thursday, only three remain to battle for the MasterChef trophy: Singing teacher Giovanna Ryan, healthy food enthusiast Saliha Mahmood-Ahmed and DJ Steve Kielty.
What can I expect from the final show?
Just an intense bout of cooking and a divine three-course meal stands between the finalists and victory.
Giovanna, Saliha and Steve each have their own styles of cooking, but to give you a flavour of the kind of thing you might expect, it was a menu of winkles, cockles and parsley on toast, an Indian-inspired roast lamb and a delicate take on rhubarb and custard that won Jane Devonshire the title of MasterChef in 2016. “Stunning” was John Torode’s verdict on her main course; “A piece of modern art” was how Gregg Wallace described her dessert. So she’s a tough act to follow, but the contestants this year have certainly reached a formidable standard.
