For, I’m pretty certain, the first time in MasterChef’s history, John Torode has to step in during the mass catering challenge because the three celebrity cooks (boxer Joe Calzaghe was ill so missed this part) are late and in a muddle. Not only that, but their bread-and-butter pud looks a fright. Torode’s last-minute version gets a grudging thumbs-up from Gregg Wallace. “I can’t remember who made this, but they’re obviously past their finest hour,” he teases before adding, “It tastes all right, though.”
Before this, Calzaghe, comedian Les Dennis, cricketer Matthew Hoggard and rapper Speech Debelle have to face the Mystery Box challenge (and yes, it contains a whole, uncleaned squid again) and a generally disastrous palate test (fig tarte tatin with pistachio praline). However, they’re still better than last week’s lot.
Former boxer Joe Calzaghe, Leicestershire cricket captain Matthew Hoggard, rapper Speech Debelle and entertainer Les Dennis compete in the fourth heat of the culinary competition. For their first challenge, the contestants must prepare a unique dish from a range of mystery ingredients including a whole squid. They then try to recreate John Torode's spiced fig tarte Tatin without a recipe, and finally enter the world of catering, feeding the Harlequins rugby union team ahead of an important match.
