Angela I'm jealous, I'd love to be able to taste Michaels main course (and Tony's tbf) It just looked beautiful and tender. I'm another one who would like to see Michael and Tony go through.

I want them both through, and both cooking at the banquet - really hoping Tony pulls of a spectacular desert to make it to Friday.

Must say though, Michael's goat dish looked absolutely gorgeous, really liked the sound and look of it.

Was it just me, or did Angela get more and more glamorous with each shot? By the end she had Barbara Cartland eyes and bright pink lipstick.

And according to the trailer, tomorrow her hair's down...
BIB - its the effect Michael is having on her and me too

If Tony wanted to go for The Flintstones theme then he should have gone all out with a full rib rack or something

or had model cars made up like on The Flintstones titles

or this

One per table should be fine



On the winning dish being North African and fitting the brief. I kind of agree with the comment that he justified the brief but really it's not really North Africa that the Comic Relief money goes to.

I have enough drama.

Angela's right. It's a lot of work for something that's essentially tasteless

It might not be the best dessert ever but it hits the brief spot on.

Tony should have gone through with Micheal. His food fitted the brief much more than the other guy and he could have tweaked his main to improve it.
