MasterChef announces new finale date after it was axed over Prince Philip death

BBC One’s MasterChef has announced the finale will be aired on Wednesday 14th April at 8pm, after it was postponed from its planned date of Friday 9th April due to the death of Prince Philip.

Over the last six weeks, judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace have put 40 of the UK’s most passionate and talented amateur cooks through their paces in the ultimate test of their culinary prowess as they search for one exceptional home cook worthy of being crowned MasterChef Champion 2021.

After an arduous six-week journey, the search for the country’s best amateur cook reaches its climax this week.

Finalists Alexina, Mike and Tom have to push themselves to the limit for one last time before judges John and Gregg choose the winner.

Another moaned: “I switched the tv on last night and was gutted about the master chef final. I like the royal fam, thought he did a lot for the monarchy/ country but it was on EVERY Chanel on terrestrial tv. Every Chanel. Reverted to sky and Netflix “.

“Gutted for @rhodeskitchen@alexinaanatole Tom #MasterChef, looked forward to final so much, you have all been robbed of a special moment. Total respect #PrincePhilip, but all BBC channels OTT,” wrote a third.

“I’m still in bits that my Masterchef final was cancelled. Had it all planned out,” added a fourth.
