TV presenter Penny Lancaster, Towie star Megan McKenna, TV host Melanie Sykes, Great British Sewing Bee judge Patrick Grant and Britain’s Got Talent comedian Nabil Abdulrashid are competing in this week’s heat.
They face another round of the new Under The Cloche challenge, in which each contestant is tasked with preparing a meal showcasing a different mystery ingredient.
The next rounds require them to make a popular street food dish from Vietnam and come up with a meal suitable for a dinner party.
At the end of the episode, one celebrity will be sent home.
When is Celebrity MasterChef on?
Celebrity MasterChef currently airs two episodes each week on Monday and Tuesday nights at 9pm.
Tuesday’s episode will see the remaining four celebrities tested in more culinary challenges as they compete for a place in the quarter-final.
One of the UK’s top fish specialists, Mitch Tonks, drops by to task them to cook one of his favourite seafood recipes.
But before that, the stars must identify different types of flavourings and make calamari and tartar sauce. For their final challenge, judges John and Gregg request them to serve up one dish inspired by a holiday.
Celebrity MasterChef continues tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
