The final five celebrities are welcomed to the challenge in the last of the heats. Trying to impress judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace are actor Brian Bovell, pop star Jaymi Hensley, singer and actor Patti Boulaye, comedian and actor Abdullah Afzal and TV personality Reverend Kate Bottley. The first challenge is the Mystery Box, where the contestants must use the provided ingredients and a basic larder, to create one dish. The celebrities then face paying customers for the first time as they are sent to work during lunchtime service in two busy London restaurants. Patti, Jaymi and Abdullah are sent to The Game Bird to work under Gordon Ramsay protege James Durrant, while Brian and Kate must try to master the dishes at contemporary Indian restaurant Jamavaar. For the final test it is back to the MasterChef headquarters, where the contestants must prepare a two-course menu of their own design. At the end of this test, one of them is sent home.
