The new series of Masterchef  starts on Monday 24 February at 21.00 on BBC One.

Yayyyyy.....thanks El Do we know the exact schedule .....is it a three day a week series ?

Thanks Baz

The first week is Monday 24th, Wednesday 26th and Friday 28th, They all start at 21.00. Monday and Wednesday 1 hour, Friday 30 minutes long.

 

Days and times may change in following weeks. For instance, there are FA Cup matches the following week. BBC One are showing matches on Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th so that week, the Wednesday Masterchef would have to move to presumably Thursday.

I’m fed up with competitive cooking programmes (and biased judges) so I think I’m going to give this series a miss.

Lightweight!

 

 What can I say?! If I’m not enjoying something, I give up.

First episode tonight

 

First 6 of 60 contestants. First test is their signature dish though they now bring their own ingredients (if they remember to). The weakest 4 have to do a Three Ingredients Challenge - today showcasing bream, fennel and tomatoes. 2 of them go home.
Then the 4 surviving contestants cook 2 courses for John and Gregg but also 3 previous Masterchef contestants who have gone on to work in the food industry. The guests' favourite cook goes through to the quarter-finals on Friday, 2 others are determined by John and Gregg, the other contestant goes home.

The other change that slipped my mind (Baz, you aren't the only one ) is that the Masterchef aprons don't get handed out until after the first two contestants go home.

Ooooh ....wonder what’s behind that El ....financial ?

and that the contestants supply their own ingredients for their signature dish

I doubt if we are the only two who wonder if it's financial
