The next episode of MasterChef will air on Thursday, 25th March at 8:30pm. It will be followed immediately by another episode at 9:30pm.

MasterChef usually airs on Friday, however, to accommodate the rescheduled France v Scotland match in the Six Nations on Friday evening, there will now be a double bill on Thursday instead.

The first episode will see the final five amateur cooks in the last heart cooking their Signature Dish.

From here, Gregg and John will pick their two favourites, leaving the remaining three to put out all the stops as they cook off in a new test known as the Favourite Ingredient Challenge.

The second episode will be the last of the quarter finals, where talented heat winners will return to fight for a semi-final place by facing the Critic’s Test.

Set by celebrated food critic Grace Dent, the challenge will involve cooking a dish inspired by global street food.
