John Torode and Gregg Wallace preside as the last group of six hopefuls compete in the culinary contest. They are challenged to serve up their signature dish, with the judges' favourite two winning a coveted MasterChef apron and a place in the next round. The others must come up with a dish using pigeon, beetroot and bacon in the Three Ingredients Challenge, after which two cooks are sent home, leaving the remaining four to cook two courses for three former contestants.
