CELEBRITY MasterChef fans were in fits of laughter as Joe Swash made a hilarious blunder in visual challenge.
In tonight’s instalment each contestant had to identify four different fruits by looking at them.

The former EastEnders star, 39, stepped up to the table as Greg Wallace and John Torode grilled him on his food knowledge.
The first fruit was a mango, the second a passion fruit, the third a lychee and the final a dragon fruit.
Joe correctly guessed the mango despite being hesitant, but was left stumped at the appearance of the passion fruit and asked to come back to that one later.
Swiftly moving on, the actor correctly identified the lychee.
But was baffled at the red exotic fruit, but made a confident guess saying: “That’s a passion fruit…that’s a passion fruit.”
Returning to the second fruit, Joe said: “That’s a thingy…is that a fig?”
The telly favourite, who admitted his spelling was questionable, jotted down his answers.
Greg and John revealed that he had got two out of four correct on the visual task.
They joked: “Interestingly number two you said was a fig is a passion fruit.”
Meanwhile, Joe incorrectly mistook a dragon fruit for a passion fruit.
The TV star’s hilarious blunder left viewers in hysterics, with one writing: “I can’t believe Joe Swash got the fruit challenge so wrong. #masterchef.”
Another posted: “Joe Swash doesn’t know what a fig looks like LOL. #masterchef.”
A third joked: “How can Joe Swash mistake a fig for a passion fruit?!? #masterchef.”
Last night Katie Price left fans in stitches with a cheeky reference to her big boobs.
The former glamour girl, 43, is famous for surgically enhanced breasts, so took the opportunity tonight to poke fun at herself.
During the first round on the show, the celebrities were tasked with cooking a dish after each being one ingredient to focus on.
She then went on to explain she liked to cook, before pointing to her boobs and quipping: “Well obviously I work with big pots in the kitchen!”
Fans loved this cheeky joke, with one tweeting: “That Katie Price is a sauce pot!”
Another commented: “Katie Price a legend!”
Katie did well on tonight’s show and won huge praise from both judges and made through to the next round tomorrow.
The show saw Repair Shop star Will leave the competition last night and actress Melissa Johns.
Meanwhile Celebrity MasterChef is playing out over the course of six weeks and 18 episodes and will air on BBC One.
