Each episode begins with the remaining contestants facing two challenges, starting with Mary’s Ultimate round, where the contestants produce their tried and tested food for special occasions.

At the end of this round, the judges must agree which is their least favourite version of the dish, and with that decision made all the cooks return to the kitchen.

Up next, it’s Chris’s incredibly difficult Rustle Up challenge – one star ingredient and one hour to create a mid-week masterpiece.

Those who haven’t impressed enough at this point will find themselves taking part in Angela’s dreaded Eliminator challenge where one cook will be sent home.

Britain’s Best Home Cook aired at 8PM on Thursday nights on BBC One.

Episodes are available to watch online via the BBC iPlayer here.
