What days is MasterChef on?

As with the previous series, MasterChef will air more than one episode per week.

The first heats will air weekly on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. This broadcast format will continue for a couple of weeks before they move into the Knockouts round, then the quarter-finals and so on and so forth. When it moves to the Knockouts and beyond, it changes its schedule to air on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

However, there is a change for series 16 as it now will take the Monday night Primetime slot. In previous series, it has aired on BBC One at 8 pm, now it will kick off at 9 pm.
