The Celebrity MasterChef 2022 final is almost here!


The semi-finals continued with two episodes last Thursday (15th September) after the show was put on hold following the news of the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The five remaining celebrities tested their culinary skills at Alexandra Palace, but in the end it was drag queen Kitty Scott Claus who was given the boot from the BBC show.

After learning that she would be going home, she joked: “Honestly what a relief! Get me a glass of vino!”

The remaining four contestants – TV presenter Lisa Snowdon, EastEnders and Call the Midwife star Cliff Parisi, McFly’s Danny Jones and All Saints star Melanie Blatt – went on to battle it out in the first of the finals episodes on Friday (16th September).
