  • At the time of writing, it has not been confirmed when it was filmed

However, the rumours of Vicky, Spencer and Craig taking part in the festive special started to spread around September 21.

Despite the celebs getting dressed up all Christmassy, reports state that the usual MasterChef series is filmed up to 5 months before it airs.

This means the Cook Off episodes could have been filmed back in August.
