Celebrity MasterChef fans fumed after Melissa Johns became eliminated from last night’s show (Tuesday August 24).
Things looked to be going well for the former Coronation Street star, 31, but it all unravelled very quickly.
Melissa Johns eliminated from Celebrity MasterChef
They faced a knowledge and a skills test last night.
In the opening test, the cooks had to rustle up a corn fritter with a poached egg and smashed avocado.
While she didn’t quite get the egg right, it wasn’t a complete disaster.
Melissa smashed the guest chef challenge
Next, star chef Sabrina Gidda asked the contestants to cook one of her favourite recipes.
Melissa had to make a dessert – hot chocolate mousse with cardamom custard gelato and cardamom and pistachio strudel.
And she smashed it, with Sabrina saying the ice cream was as good as anything that would come out of her own kitchen.
However, a final round consisting of chicken curry didn’t go down well.
And soon, Melissa was on her way.

Sorry that's a joke #CelebrityMasterChef . Why bother having other rounds over the hour then kick out someone solely on the final dish? Totally wrong decision.
