CELEBRITY Masterchef viewers were left fuming after the most recent semi-final which saw contestants making sandwiches.
In the first teamwork challenge of the 2021 season the celebs were tasked with making two dishes in a cooking relay.
Masterchef judge Gregg Wallace then introduced the celebrities to a special guest.
“We have got a special guest. A chef who has dedicated his life to the perfection of a very British institution – the sandwich," he said before revealing chef, Max Halley.
Max did a cooking demonstration of the perfect sandwich for the team before tasking them with creating their own "super sandwich".
I have my own sandwich mantra. Every sandwich we have ever served adheres to these six rules: hot, cold, sweet, sour, crunchy, and soft," he explained.
“For me, it’s the secret of deliciousness.”
Gregg added: "We now want you to create your own super sandwich."
Fellow judged John Torode said: "We really hope you listened to Max and his six points of deliciousness.”
But Celebrity Masterchef fans were not keen on the challenge and dubbed it 'too easy'.
“I don't get how this is really classed as cooking. When I trained to be a chef we didn't learn how to make a sandwich it seems a bit too easy xx,” wrote on fan on Twitter.
Another added: “Cannot believe they're about to eliminate someone over a sandwich #CelebrityMasterChef #MasterChefUK."
Despite the criticism, Happy Monday's Bez loved the challenge.
“I’m a northerner. We love our butties," he said on the show.
Melanie Sykes agreed: “We love our butties, you're right about that.”
Bez added: “Yeah so if you can’t make a good butty you’re living in the wrong town.”
Wednesday's semi-final saw beloved comedian Su Pollard eliminated from the competition.
The winner of Celebrity MasterChef is rewarded with the prestigious title, as well as the chance to lift the iconic MasterChef trophy.
They also get bragging rights and will most likely be invited back to sample delicious food from future contestants across MasterChef’s different shows.
There is no cash prize, but the honour of winning the show is more than enough to ensure that celebs can be seen stepping up to the plate year after year.
Riyadh Khalaf was the last celebrity to lift the MasterChef trophy back in 2020, beating out Olympians Sir Matthew Pinsent and Sam Quek for the coveted prize.
The Irish YouTuber, presenter, author and activist is an advocate for the LGBTQ+ community and released a book in 2019 entitled ‘Yay! You’re Gay! Now What?: A Gay Boy's Guide to Life’.
Speaking about the win he said: “I am absolutely in shock. I can’t believe it, it’s an incredible feeling.
“This show I have been watching since I was in school and to have gone from being a fan of the show to winning the thing – this is without a doubt the biggest achievement of my life.”
