Five of MasterChef's regular food critics are to compete against each other in the kitchen for a one-off special episode this Christmas.
To win the 'Golden Cutlery' trophy and become the inaugural Critics Champion, they must impress Gregg Wallace and John Torode, plus a table of MasterChef champions - Ping Coombes (2014), Kenny Tutt (2018) and Nikita Pathakji (Professionals 2022).
The first challenge will see them cook an Australia-inspired dish from a Secret Santa Mystery Box for special guest Peter Andre, after which they will have to impress with their 'Ultimate Christmas Dinner' to take home the Golden Whisk.
Both shows will air on BBC One and iPlayer over the festive period.
