What time is it on TV?

Masterchef: The Professionals is on this week Tuesday 21st November, Wednesday 22nd November and Thursday 23rd November, 8pm, BBC2.


What happens this week?

This week will see another two heats (one on Tuesday, the other on Wednesday) where 12 chefs will be whittled down to six. These six survivors will then battle it out in Thursday’s quarterfinals for a knockout week spot.

What’s it about? 

A spin-off from the original, Masterchef: The Professionals sees six young chefs battle it out to make it to the top of the culinary world. With skills week to knock out week and then the two-course menu final to get through, the young hopefuls have got quite the long and stressful road ahead of them.

Monica Galetti and Marcus Wareing return as judges, with Gregg Wallace back to host.


Is it any good?

With 10 seasons and a BAFTA Award win under its belt, it’s safe to say it’s one of the tastiest cooking competitions on television.
