Celebrity MasterChef

Series 9 - Episode 7



Do you remember when Charley Boorman and his old pal Ewan McGregor zoomed across Mongolia on motorbikes in the early noughties, tucking into local delicacies like sheep’s eyeballs (or was it sheep’s testicles?) with a fraught grin? You see that facial expression again tonight. This time round, though, it’s John Torode and Gregg Wallace who look a little green around the gills as they’re served fish and chips five ways – none of them appetising.

In the last of the heats Boorman is up against another of his old pals, actor Jason Connery; singer Kiki Dee; pale, tense Tina Hobley of Holby fame; and pink, jolly Christopher Biggins. “Shall I go and sing to them?” guffaws Biggins, when the gas goes out in the Belgravia hotel where he’s meant to be mastering ravioli. The head chef doesn’t see the joke. In the bowels of another restaurant Boorman makes himself unpopular by repeatedly barking, “Yes, boss!” instead of “yes, chef!”


Singer Kiki Dee, travel writer Charley Boorman, and actors Jason Connery, Christopher Biggins and Tina Hobley compete in the fourth and final heat of the cookery contest. They begin by making their own version of fish and chips using the ingredients in the mystery box, before facing paying customers as they are sent to work a busy lunchtime service at two London restaurants. It's then back to the studio to come up with a two-course menu, the last chance to impress Gregg Wallace and John Torode before one of them is sent home.
