Brand new series of MasterChef kicks off tonight as John Torode and Gregg Wallace return to put 64 more amateur cooks to the test. In this opening episode, we meet the first eight hopefuls who kick things off by creating a dish using ingredients chosen from the new 'MasterChef market', stocked full of produce from all over the world. Only five will make the initial cut tonight while the remaining cooks are then challenged to prepare a two-course meal to secure a place in the quarter-final. It won't only be John and Gregg they have to impress but also the finalists of last year's MasterChef competition.
