Celebrity MasterChef fans are warming to Katie Price as she continues to impress in the kitchen.
The star, 43, appeared alongside the likes of Dion Dublin, Joe Swash, Melissa Johns and The Repair Shop’s Will Kirk this week.
And last night she smashed her dishes, surviving another round and impressing viewers.
Katie Price on Celebrity MasterChef
It’s quite a turnaround for Katie, after trolls came out in force earlier in the week.
Everything from her new teeth, her hands, her eyebrows to her cosmetic surgery were mercilessly savaged on Twitter.
And the very fact that she was Katie Price was enough to anger some people – they thought the show was “scraping the barrel” by hiring her.
Katie’s MasterChef turnaround
However, as Katie continues to impress, viewers are starting to get behind her.
Last night, she smashed the brunch skills test by whipping up corn fritters, a perfect poached egg and smashed avocado.
After judge Gregg Wallace told her she had a “really strong round” Katie reflected on her performance.
Looking overjoyed, she said: “I did it! They both said it was excellent. Literally I smashed that one. I’m really pleased with myself.”
And when Katie was leaving the kitchen, John Torode said: “Nothing fazes her.”
Gregg added: “She’s really calm under pressure.”
I have a soft spot for Katie Price. I don’t know why, I just think she has a good heart under all the bluster and defensiveness. It seems like a few blokes have done her wrong in her life. #CelebrityMasterChef
