Celebrity MasterChef: Sandwich challenge under fire as fans call for Bez to win

BBC viewers couldn't get their heads around the latest task

| Updated:

Celebrity MasterChef fans were baffled when the celebs were challenged with making a sandwich during the latest semi-final round.

After a teamwork challenge, the BBC One stars were introduced to special guest Max Halley.

Judge Gregg Wallace then revealed what Max’s speciality is, to the surprise of viewers.

“We have got a special guest. A chef who has dedicated his life to the perfection of a very British institution – the sandwich,” he said.

Max then did a cooking demonstration, before asking the celebs to make their own “super sandwich”.

“I have my own sandwich mantra. Every sandwich we have ever served adheres to these six rules: hot, cold, sweet, sour, crunchy, and soft,” he explained. “For me, it’s the secret of deliciousness.”

Meanwhile, despite the complaints, Happy Mondays singer Bez was chuffed with the challenge.

“I’m a northerner. We love our butties,” he laughed. “Yeah so if you can’t make a good butty you’re living in the wrong town.”

However, in the end, it was Su Pollard who ended up being eliminated during Wednesday’s show.

Furthermore, after seeing him excel at the task, fans called for Bez to be crowned the winner of this year’s series.
