Celebrity Masterchef fans have tipped Bez to be crowned champion of the 2021 series.

Viewers branded the Happy Mondays star, 57, a ‘culinary genius’ as he rustled up a fish, chips and pickled egg sandwich for the judges during the Wednesday’s episode.

However, it was sad news for Su Pollard, 71, who became the latest celebrity to be eliminated after her unusual ham hock, broccoli, apricot and kimchi sandwich failed to impress John Torode and Gregg Wallace during the tense semi-final.

The final eight contestants were joined by ‘sandwich king’ Max Halley during the first of the semi-final heats in which they were tasked with creating a sandwich incorporating his six key elements of a sandwich – Hot, Cold, Sweet, Sour, Crunchy, Soft.

And while stars including Megan McKenna, Kem Cetinay and Joe Swash fared well, it was Bez who garnered the most praise from fans and the judges thanks to his creation.

The percussionist – real name Mark Berry – created a ‘butty’ close to his heart, consisting of battered cod, chips, tempura white bait, mayonnaise and an unusual element of a grated pickled egg. 

Oh dear! However, it was sad news for Su Pollard, 71, who became the latest celebrity to be eliminated after failing to impress John Torode and Gregg Wallace during the tense semi-final
