MasterChef 15

John Torode and Gregg Wallace are back to present, and more importantly judge, the 15th season of the cookery competition as a new batch of hopefuls set out to impress.

Throughout the season the contestants must show John and Gregg what they're made of, as well as guest judges and previous winners of the show.

Those who progress get the chance to meet some of the most acclaimed chefs in the world, including Alexis Gauthier, Raymond Blanc and Vicky Lau, and some will even get to travel to Hong Kong for a challenge.

Who will show they have what it takes and be crowned MasterChef?

This year sees the return of the MasterChef Market, stocked full of the best-quality produce from across the world, including meat, fish, fruit, vegetables, nuts, pulses, grains and dairy.

The challenge is to invent and then cook one dish using anything from the market. The featured ingredients include brown shrimp, mussels, mackerel, beef mince and pork tenderloin.

They have an hour and 10 minutes to dazzle the judges and prove they are good enough to stay in the competition.

The stakes are high in this round and it's important to choose wisely because after tasting all seven dishes, John and Gregg will decide which four cooks are good enough to stay, while three cooks will be sent straight home.
