Out of the thousands who applied, 60 amateur cooks have made it through to compete over five weeks of heats. This year they will have to cook not only for their place in the competition but also the right to wear a coveted MasterChef apron. With six contestants in each heat and only four aprons up for grabs, the battle is fierce from the offset. The contestants get their first chance to win an apron by cooking their signature dish – a plate that shows John and Gregg who they are as a cook and how good they can become. After tasting all six dishes, John and Gregg will pick their two favourites, and those cooks will earn themselves not only a MasterChef apron but also a place in the next round. The remaining four contestants remain to face a second test, the Three Ingredients Challenge.

The four remaining chefs will then cook for the three MasterChef 2015 finalists, Emma Spitzer, Tony Rodd and Simon Wood, whose votes will help determine who goes through to the quarter-finals.
