Salivary glands at the ready, folks, as gourmet cooking competition MasterChef: the Professionals dishes up its last course of the series tonight (8pm, BBC2/BBC HD).


Another crowd of would-be (Michelin) superstars has been whittled down to three cooks whose culinary prowess has set them apart from the herd and impressed the famously hard-to-please Michel Roux Jr.

Steve Barringer, Claire Hutchings and Ash Mair are the last remaining contestants, all of whom have shone in different ways as the series has unfolded.
