It has been one of the best series yet for MasterChef: The Professionals, and we still have a little while to go before we get to the big final for 2021.


As ever, Michelin-starred titan Marcus Wareing and MasterChef veteran Monica Galetti have been casting their eyes over the proceedings alongside show stalwart Gregg Wallace.

But when is the next episode on, and how can you keep up to date with all the culinary goodness?

Here's everything you need to know about series 14 of MasterChef: The Professionals and when each episode will air on BBC One - including the date that the final is set for!

When is MasterChef: The Professionals on?

MasterChef: The Professionals started on BBC One on Monday 8th November with two episodes airing at 7:35pm and 8:30pm, as the first four contestants stepped into the kitchen.

The weeks have since gone by and the competition has heated up, and we've reached the semi-final stage, which continues on Wednesday 8th December at 9pm before concluding on Thursday 9th December at the same time.

Finals Week begins on Tuesday 14th December at 9pm and continues on Wednesday 15th December at 9pm.

When is the MasterChef: The Professionals Final? That is closer than you may think, as it will air next week on Thursday 16th December at 9pm.

The series has seen 32 chefs introduced in eight heats of four.

At the end of each week, two contestants from each heat made it through to a weekly quarter-final, where they cooked for a trio of the UK’s best food critics.

Episodes tend to air throughout the week on either Monday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, but we'll keep you updated if there are any unexpected changes to the schedule.
