Celebrity MasterChef eliminates two contestants

Celebrity MasterChef spoilers follow.

Celebrity MasterChef continued with two episodes on Thursday (September 15) due to schedule changes, so we got to see even more kitchen fumbles and people going home.

We started with Jimmy Bullard, Lisa Snowdon, Kitty Scott-Claus, Cliff Parisi, Mel Blatt, Faye Winter and Danny Jones as semi-finalists, with Jimmy and Faye is eliminated from the competition by John Torode and Gregg Wallace.

So what happened to lead to these results? The first episode began with none other than TV cooking legend Mary Berry appearing and observing as everyone had different recipes to recreate.

Although everyone admitted the added pressure of having Mary herself there watching, most of the celebrities were praised for their dishes, with Faye receiving a few criticisms.

The celebrities were then tasked with creating a dish for Queen Elizabeth II inspired by the platinum jubilee (a continuity announcement explained that this was filmed months before Her Majesty’s death, just to avoid confusion).

The comments were much more mixed this time. Cliff took on a lot of work and it resulted in some inconsistent tempura mash balls. Jimmy’s potatoes weren’t cooked all the way through, Kitty’s lacked definition in her layers, and Mel stressed herself so much she restarted the cake and ended up serving something that was far too spongy.

On the other hand, Lisa and Danny sailed through to the next round, and Faye got through Gregg’s love for her coronation chicken. At the end of the first episode, the judges said goodbye to Jimmy.

In the second episode, the last of the semi-finals, the remaining six celebrities had to cook the ultimate dish for restaurant critic Grace Dent, who told them that their meals had to combine the warmth and security of home-cooked meals with the finesse of a professional dinner.

Everyone dressed up in comfortable celebrity outfits made desserts, pies and hamburgers, while Mel made a really bizarre-sounding macaroni and cheese.

Fortunately for her, her experiment paid off. Danny’s idea of ​​mixing mint into his pie divided the judges, while Kitty’s pie was a little too heavy on the broccoli and Faye’s sticky toffee pudding was too dry, although her ice cream was praised.

Lisa’s fried chicken burger was described as “perfect”, while Cliff’s Bakewell tart had Gregg cracking up as it reminded him of his youth.

In the end, Faye didn’t make it to the final five, but said she was very happy to make it this far and was very proud of herself.

Celebrity MasterChef airs on BBC One, with the first final scheduled for tomorrow (September 16) at 9pm.
