This Friday the 13th proved unlucky for two Celebrity MasterChef 2019 contestants as they went home tonight on the BBC series. Mim Shaikh was eliminated earlier in the week, but tonight’s episode saw only two contestants remain from this second heat. Jenny Ryan, Josie Long, Dom Parker and Dr Alex George were fighting it out for those places in the next round.
Who left Celebrity MasterChef tonight?
Josie and Alex became the fifth and sixth contestants to be eliminated from Celebrity MasterChef 2019.
This means that Jenny and Dom are both through to the next round and will reappear on the series in a few weeks time.
After a hard day’s cooking, they failed to sufficiently impress judges Jon Torode and Gregg Wallace and 2018 finalists Martin Bayfield, Spencer Matthews and winner John Partridge.
The four remaining contestants all had to cook a two-course meal for the trio of former Celeb MasterChef participants.
The quarter each cooked the following meals for the former contestants.
Jenny: Main: Deconstructed lamb hotpot. Dessert: ‘Paddington’s posh pudding’ – a brioche pudding made with marmalade sandwiches served with a cocktail
Josie: Main: Pork tenderloin with chestnuts and spinach with pan-fried paprika potatoes. Dessert: Rice pudding with cherry
Dom: Main: Loin of venison ‘chocolat’ with sauteed sweet potatoes, wild mushrooms and baby asparagus. Dessert: Lemon cheesecake with a raspberry coulis
Alex: Main: Pomegrantate chicken with cauliflower rice and kale. Dessert: Raw chocolate brownies with raspberry sauce
Earlier in the week, actor and documentarian Mim Shaikh was eliminated from the second heat of the series.
The five contestants were tasked with making pizza and then creating a meal inspired by time spent working in a professional kitchen.
Mim actually shined in the pizza challenge, while both Josie and Dr Alex created pizzas that left many viewers horrified.
However, actually underwhelming with his second dish, the Radio 1Xtra star was sent home.
On Monday, five new contestants will enter the Celebrity MasterChef kitchen.
They are Martha Reeves, Greg Rutherford, Dillian Whyte, Rickie Haywood-Williams and Elizabeth Bourgine.
Fans can tune in on Monday to see who joins Dom and Jenny in the next round.
