CELEBRITY MasterChef returned to BBC One for series 16 on August 9, 2021.
Who left Celebrity MasterChef 2021 tonight?
The Britain’s Got Talent star was given the boot ahead of Penny Lancaster, Megan McKenna and Melanie Sykes.
Fish specialist Mitch Tonks challenged each of the celebrities to cook one of his favourite seafood recipes.
And for their final challenge, judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace asked the cooks to serve up a dish inspired by a holiday.
Nabil follows Great British Sewing Bee judge Patrick Grant out of the MasterChef kitchen after his chocolate cake failed to impress the judges on Monday’s episode (August 16).
The 49-year-old had to accept failure in the pancake challenge, after trying (and failing) to cook the dish several times.
He wasn’t the only one to stumble, however – in fact, none of the celebs managed to recreate the Vietnamese classic.
In the final round, Patrick attempted a deconstructed feta cheesecake, but failed to do enough to secure his place in the competition.
Judge Gregg Wallace was especially unimpressed with the dessert, and compared the dish to a “creamy, fruity puddle”.
But Patrick was able to look on the bright side of being eliminated, calling his time on the show a “big learning experience”.
He added that his first mistake was daring to mess with a classic cheesecake.
Other celebs fared better, with the judges praising former Towie star Megan McKenna for her champagne chicken as well as her trout, making her the star of the episode.
