Yea, I read a few more of the linked articles afterwards and they were pretty good.

Not sure how I feel about the judges knowing who cooked the menu before the end of tasting. Seems a touch unfair considering the cliquey nature of these programmes.

Matthew looks like he's lost weight to me. I don't know how Adam got through - his food looked nice but didn't meet the brief at all

Completely agree, would have been more of a contest between Matt and Tom.

There leaning too heavily on this idea of 'Comedy', Id be really surprised if someone can cook a dish which makes them laugh without resorting to stupid props.

I hope Tom goes through, I dislike like him slightly less then I dislike Adam who just doesn't seem to have got what was expected of him

Didnt we have this trouble last year? Ridiculous hard to fathom brief and a lack of consistency in judging.

I agree but I think previously even though they weren't supposed to know the camera man gave it away as he went from a shot of the dish they'd just eaten to the photo of the chef on the wall

I think they had to bring in the celeb judge because they wanted more chefs during the week but only two on the Friday.
