When is the MasterChef 2021 final? New date confirmed for BBC One TONIGHT!

A new date has been confirmed for MasterChef 2021 final after it was cancelled last week following the death of HRH Prince Philip.


The BBC dropped its planned schedule for both BBC One and BBC Two last Friday (9 April) to air special news bulletins.

It meant that the MasterChef final did not air as originally scheduled.

When is the MasterChef final on TV?

The BBC has now confirmed the final of MasterChef will air TONIGHT – Wednesday, 14 April at 8PM on BBC One.

As well as watching on TV, you can watch the final online as it airs or on catch up via the BBC iPlayer.

The final will see the winner of Series 17 crowned after weeks of competition.

Back with a bang for the new year, MasterChef, TV’s biggest cooking competition has seen 40 contestants fight to be crowned the UK’s best amateur cook.


The new series is once again being led by judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace.

Over the course of the heats, quarter finals and semi-finals just a trio of chefs now remain for the final.

They are 27-year-old Mike Tomkins, 31-year-old Tom Rhodes and 30-year-old Alexina Anatole.

In the final, they must produce the best three dishes of their lives, push their culinary boundaries and produce jaw-droppingly impressive food for the judges.

It’s now or never for the exceptional amateur cooks, as only one of them can lift the trophy and become the 17th MasterChef champion.


You’ll be able to watch and catch up on episodes via the BBC iPlayer.
