Martin Bayfield's lamb dish looked like caveman food :lol:

I knew “Carol” looked familiar, took me a while to get Carol Decker. Keith Allen I did get.

Never heard of Jay Blades, and although I have heard of Monty Panesar I do not know his face.
I am utterly useless at "celebrities"

Jay Blades is the furniture restorer on The Repair Shop ... if you've not seen this programme you're missing a treasure ... it's delightful ... currently after Eggheads on weeknight evenings. He's been on some other programmes too ... seems a really lovely chap.

I have been watching The Repair Shop too. A very enjoyable bridge between afternoon quizzes and the rest of the evening when not in the mood for depressing early evening news.

Tonight's MC was one of the funniest yet. The team work through a wall was hysterical. I probably need to get out more! But tall man and gorgeous eyes were like a double act. That Scotch Egg! Not noticing that the piccallili needed cooking until the last minute! I didn't think that round would work, but it did.

Anita Harris. A name I've grown up with. Isn't she gorgeous still? I really didn't know the other three but did enjoy watching them all this week. Two good strong characters made it through to the semis so that should be good TV.

I thought that this competition has been the most entertaining in a long while. I didn't see the final result coming. I thought that for many reasons Chelsea boy would have won. A tiny bit frustrated that they all did scallops with the usual accompaniments for starters. Are the combinations really that good or just safe?

Still, I thoroughly enjoyed all of it, and now today I have a feeling I will end up succumbing to a custard tart. :hungry:

I though I knew who’d won when they ate the main, and I was sure when they got to pud.

I could have eaten that :)

I've not watched every episode, but I picked John out early on as a likely winner ... he had the eye for detail, the understanding to pick out the salient points of what he learned and adapt them to his own food, a flair for presentation and, more than any of them, he had oodles of whatever it is that gives us pleasure in preparing and eating good food.

I had no idea who he was until they did the little biog bit last night ... he deserved to win because of his cooking and I'm pleased for him because he seems to be a really nice chap :D :tu:

I was pleased with the result too.

I love the way he was brave enough to keep it relatively simple and rely upon good ingredients and his skill which has really developed during the series.

Agree with all of you - once Stephanie had gone.
I really liked John and would have enjoyed his food...
... Even though I had never heard of him.
