A reality show nobody really minds seeing making its return, as these amateur cooks usually do bring a rake load of talent into the MasterChef kitchen. The show will be broadcast twice weekly, until judges Nick Munier and Dylan McGrath whittle down the talent to the one who will receive the illustrious honour of being named the best nonprofessional chef in all the land. Tonight, we will meet the first six aiming to impress - Charlie, Niamh, Claudio, Gary, Emma and Ric. The hopefuls will have just one hour to create a signature dish from seafood, lamb, rabbit or steak - no pressure then. Only four of them will progress through to the next stage in the competition however, so no doubt tensions will be running high. Don't know why they do it to themselves really, isn't there a lot to be said for a simple beans avec toast... no?
