Who left MasterChef last night?

Judges John and Gregg admitted they had a tough timing choosing who to send home in last night’s semi-final.

After telling all five contestants they should be proud of themselves, John told then: “Four of you will be going through to the next round. Sadly, one of you will be leaving us.”

Gregg announced that Drag Race UK star Kitty Scott-Claus wouldn’t be going forward to the final.

He told her: “Kitty, you have lit this competition up, you really have. Well done, sorry to see you go.”

“Oh, it’s ok,” she said. “Well done, guys,” she told her fellow contestants before saying goodbye to John and giving him a cheeky wink.

Speaking to the cameras afterwards, she added: “You know what, I think more than anything I just feel proud of myself.

“I can cook and I’m not useless, I’ve had the most amazing time. I just can’t wait to get a massage and a big glass of wine for me.”

She jokingly yelled: “Honestly what a relief! Get me a glass of vino!”

Who are the finalists in Celebrity MasterChef?

After Kitty was sent home, the final five became four.

Now, it’s down to TV presenter Lisa Snowdon, EastEnders and Call The Midwife star Cliff Parisi, McFly’s Danny Jones and All Saints star Melanie Blatt.
