Who are the final three cooks battling it out to be MasterChef champion?
Project manager Jack Layer, 27, mother-of-four Jane Devonshire, 50, and property surveyor Billy Wright, 32, must push their culinary boundaries to create an innovative three-course meal in the final challenge standing between them and the trophy.
Juanita Hennessey, 38, an online production team manager, left the competition on Thursday night’s show when she failed to impress with her twist on creme brulee, featuring tonka bean, fennel and blueberries.
Judge Gregg Wallace said there were about “two or three flavours too many” on her plate.
Her exit followed her leaving a challenge early in the previous episode due to illness.
Juanita’s competitors stepped in to cook her starter course for a VIP meal at the British Embassy in Mexico City when she began to feel feverish.
After she was voted off the show by Gregg and John Torode on Thursday, the remaining three went through to the tough Chef’s Table challenge, recreating dishes from chef Daniel Humm’s three Michelin-starred restaurant Eleven Madison Park in New York.
