Five more hopefuls get their first chance to win an apron by cooking their signature dish – something that tells judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace who they are as a cook. After tasting all five plates, John and Gregg pick their two favourite dishes, awarding their cooks a place in the next round.

The remaining three contestants then cook off in a new test, the Favourite Ingredient Challenge. Gifted with their chosen favourite ingredient, they must create one exceptional dish that showcases it. The stakes are high, as one cook will be sent home at the end of the round.

The four remaining cooks now compete for a place in the quarter-finals. They must cook two courses that will excite not just John and Gregg, but also MasterChef champion Steven Wallis and 2006 finalist Dean Edwards. With just two quarter-final places up for grabs, they need to be good to survive. Show less
