Celebrity MasterChef’s Gregg Wallace Refuses To Eat Comedian Dish After Discovering The Meat Is RAW: ‘It’s Impossible To Ignore’
It’s the penultimate week before the Celebrity MasterChef final, so the bar is expected to be set pretty high.
But the pressure seemed to be getting too much for comedian Marcus Brigstocke, who was sent packing during Friday’s episode after serving a plate of raw pork.
For the last task of the week, the wannabe chefs were challenged to create airplane-style food.
And while the rest of the contestants served top-notch dishes, Marcus seemed to fall at the last hurdle.
Judge Greg Wallace refused to eat the kitchen in awkward scenes that aired as he dissected the pink flesh with his fork.
Oh no: comedian Marcus Brigstocke got boxed on Friday night’s episode of Celebrity MasterChef after serving a plate of raw pork on Friday night’s show

As he cut into the fillet, the former greengrocer gasped, “Oh!” before saying, “Ooh, Marcus, I’m sorry, we’re undercooked pork here.” There are bits that are raw.’
Then he went one step further and exclaimed, “It’s impossible to ignore.”
Marcus had cooked pork fillet stuffed with nduja salami, fennel and hazelnuts, a roasted cabbage kebab with cabbage puree, but when Gregg cut the fillet, he announced that the dish was inedible.
Fans flocked to X, formerly Twitter, to share their thoughts, with one calling it “unforgivable” and the other declaring it would “fail us all.”
Another stated that they were “gutted” for him.
Marcus’ departure leaves the five remaining contestants Amy Walsh, Wynne Evans, Jamelia, Max George and Luca Bish from Love Island to compete for the winning title.
In the final week, the remaining chefs will be pushed to deliver their food to a whole new level.
In one episode, the celebrities travel to East Sussex to cook a very special lunch in a kitchen unlike any other.

Bye! Despite impressing the judges in the previous challenges, the pressure seemed to get too much for Marcus as he said a tearful goodbye to the kitchen.
Shock: On X, formerly Twitter, fans wrote their thoughts with one calling the raw meat “unforgivable” and the other declaring it would “fail us all”

On their way to Hunter Gather Cook, which is described as “the place to gather good food and enjoy the wild side of life,” the finalists are only allowed to use an open fire to prepare a three-course lunch for twenty of the best scouts of the country who are on the South Downs and complete their survival badge.
Returning to the MasterChef kitchen, the budding chefs must then each create an exceptional dish, inspired by someone they admire.
The celebrities must do justice to that special someone and impress John and Gregg by displaying creativity, skill, flair and determination to stay in the competition.
For the chef who falls short of the mark, his time is up and the remaining four contestants move one step closer to the title of 2023 Celebrity MasterChef Champion.
