After weeks of cooking challenges, the Celebrity MasterChef 2022 final has arrived.


The show returned for season 17 earlier this year, with 20 new celebrities stepping into the kitchen in a bid to impress judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace.

We're now down to just three contestants who are in the running to become the Celebrity MasterChef 2022 winner.

Competing for the title is All Saints singer Melanie Blatt, McFly's Danny Jones and TV presenter Lisa Snowdon.

The trio will face their final challenge, known as the The Chef's Table, hosted at Italian chef Giorgio Locatelli's Locanda Locatelli restaurant in Mayfair.

Actor Cliff Parisi just missed out on the final last night, as he became the latest contestant to be eliminated from the BBC cooking show.

As the final airs, read on for everything you need to know about the finalists.
