Episode 5 – Semi Final
Over the last month eight has become four as comedian and actor Gary Cooke , national Lottery Presenter Kamal Ibrahim, RTÉ Sports Presenter, Tracy Piggott, and the contestant from episode 4 (can’t be revealed until transmission on August 4th) lost their aprons.
In tonight’s episode, having made it to the semi-final, the four cooks will be given their most important challenge to date when they are asked to cook one dish, a ‘Show Stopper’, that will wow Dylan and Nick and make them worthy of a place in the final. They will be given an extensive pantry made up of the best of Irish ingredients and one hour thirty minutes to create a dish.
The cook that fails to impress Nick and Dylan will lose their apron and leave the MasterChef kitchen, as the remaining three will go forward to the Celebrity MasterChef Ireland final.
