Masterchef The Professionals: Meet Ben

Episode 7 of Masterchef: The Professionals saw Ben do his best to secure a place in the semi-final.

Ben’s journey to becoming a chef was particularly touching. He was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and spent a long period in hospital. On recovery, Ben had to decide whether he’d go back to his building job or pursue a career in cooking.
