Celebrity MasterChef welcomed back Crissy Rock to the kitchen for a special Christmas episode of the cookery competition.
The Liverpudlian actress faced off against Strictly Come Dancing judge Craig Revel Horwood, Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews and presenter Amar Latif.
While Craig went on to claim victory, 13 years after he last competed, it was Crissy’s chaotic cooking style that stole the show.
The contestants were tasked with creating a two course festive dinner for their final challenge,
Crissy whipped up roast beef stuffed with a myriad of things including red peppers and cheese with horseradish mash, with a port jelly for dessert as an homage to her home town.
Her dinner came with a surprise guest – a roast turkey leg put in a box and dressed up to to look like the real thing.
‘Who’s our friend joining us?’ John asked nervously when it came to tasting her food.
‘That’s Turkey George. He’s so happy that he’s not on the plate’ Crissy explained, causing John to burst out laughing.
Turkey George, complete with googly eyes, creeped viewers out with one joking they would write ‘a horror movie’ about the bird, while others thought it was a hilarious addition.
Gregg praised her ‘smooth’ mashed potato and ‘perfectly pink’ beef but admitted he found the red peppers ‘unusual’.
John agreed, adding: ‘The stuffing in the beef is unusual, they are being bombarded of the flavour of a pizza.’
Crissy also caused chaos during the team challenge when she accidentally dumped an entire bowl of salt into her salted caramel.
After starting again, her new sauce hardened inside its squeezy bottle, forcing her to cut it out and grate it over her Christmas cake.
Craig now joins Monday night’s champion Janet Street Porter as MasterChef’s first Christmas winners.
