BBC MasterChef viewers slam show as the ‘real winner’ is sent home in semi-final

Some MasterChef viewers have clearly had their fill saying the wrong hopeful was sent home minutes after a rival served up a 'raw' dish.

John Torode and Gregg Wallace announced Abi, 22, would be the next contestant to depart leaving Louise, Chris and Brin still standing. Fans flocked to X to say a big mistake had been made - with some even tipping the talented chef from Leeds, Yorkshire, to go all the way.

John told the final four: "Two of you today have been absolutely exceptional. Chris, Brin. Congratulations. You're through to the final." It was then down to the two women in a showdown and he soon put everyone out of agony and confirmed: "The contestant leaving us... is Abi. It's been an incredible journey for you."

His co-host Gregg went on: "I would really really like to see what happens with you next because you are an amazing talent for somebody so young. Well done." It didn't go down well with everyone at home who argued that she should have stayed on after some errors were made.

Saleswoman Abi said: "Obliviously a little gutting to be going home at this stage, so close but the whole competition has been challenge from start to finish. I'm definitely really proud of what I've achieved." Som say Chris should have made his exit after his main course of poach and roasted spiced duck breast served with crispy duck leg didn't look cooked.

The comments were flowing on X. One said on the platform: "Gutted for Abi - you’re a winner in my eyes!!" Another put: "Fallen at the final hurdle. Really thought it was hers to take #Masterchef." A third wrote about Chris' efforts: "#Masterchef I don't think that duck's even dead."

After seven weeks of intense competition, only one can win the coveted trophy and title. But will it be vet Brin, circus performer Chris or farmer Louise? This week the four kick off with a trip to Singapore in which they must cook in a street market and also at a five-star hotel.

In Tuesday’s episode they returned to London’s Mayfair, where they get the chance to recreate a classic dish at famous three-starred restaurant Le Gavroche before it closes its doors forever, guided by restaurant boss Michel Roux Jr himself. The final trio will each prepare a sumptuous three-course menu for judges John and Gregg, who will judge them on taste, presentation and originality.

Finally, one of them will be named as this year’s champion. It won't be Abi, who says she decided to apply for she show to see if she was really any good. “I knew that it could be a lot of pressure but I wanted to prove to myself that I was talented and it wasn’t family bias! I truly can’t believe I’m through to the Finals. I’ve been working so hard for so long and it just feels like a sense of huge achievement."
