Seven more amateurs try to prove to judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace that they have the potential to be the 2018 MasterChef champion.

This year sees the return of the MasterChef Market, stocked full of the best-quality produce from across the world, including meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts, pulses, grains and dairy. The challenge is to invent and then cook one dish using anything from the market. This time the featured ingredients include lamb neck, lamb mince, chicken breast, clams and brown shrimp. The contestants have an hour and ten minutes to dazzle the judges and prove they are good enough to stay in the competition. After tasting all seven dishes, John and Gregg decide which four cooks are good enough to stay, while three cooks are sent straight home.

The four remaining cooks now have one more challenge standing between them and a quarter-final place. They must cook an impressive menu that will excite not just John and Gregg but also some very special guests. In this second heat, the contestants must attempt to impress the MasterChef finalists from 2010 - Alex Rushmer, Tim Kinnaird and champion Dhruv Baker.

After the four hopefuls have cooked, John and Gregg decide who has what it takes to go through to Friday's quarter-final. Show less
