Who will win MasterChef 2021?
The 202 series has seen a number of extremely talented budding chef’s, but there can only be one winner.
The first of the final three cooking experts is Tom, a Newcastle-based high-street chain restaurant manager.
Gregg has previously singled out one of Tom’s desserts as his “dish of the day.”
Tom confessed: “I am totally obsessed with cooking, I am the kind of person who will spend three, four, five hours making dinner – just for myself a lot of the time, because I live alone.”
The second contestant aiming for glory is Alexina, who is responsible for the frozen food section at Mindful Chef, as Head of Frozen.
A University of Cambridge graduate, Alexina impressed the judges with her pana cotta with a cocoa nib tuile.
27-year-old senior sales executive Mike from Surrey is also gunning for glory. He specialises in Italian food, but was subject to huge praise from the judges over the cooking of his partridge in a previous episode.
