Gregg Wallace refuses to eat MasterChef's contestant dish as they fight back tears in toe-curling scenes | The Sun

THERE was chaos on MasterChef as judge Gregg Wallace refused to eat one contestant's dish during the opening episode of the latest series.

The BBC One series returned with Gregg Wallace and John Torode at the helm to offer up their advice and expertise to the nine new hopeful chefs.

Despite promise amongst the new cooks in the kitchen, things quickly took a turn for one contestant who left judge Gregg feeling "uncomfortable".

Under a time pressure, Woei was in a race to get his food ready to be served up in just five minuets.

"Under control, don't worry, the sauce is done. Hopefully it doesn't blow John and Gregg away with the heat," he told the show's new floor manager who fans accused of being a 'distraction' thanks to his good looks.

Woei had the right ideas as he attempted to serve up what could have been a tasty dish but it quickly fell flat.

Amongst a tomato and chilli sauce and a bed of blue basmati rice and tempura curry leaves were two pieces of marinated chicken.

Before taking a close inspection at the meat, John told Woei: "I love that sauce. Rich and buttery, sweet with tomato and nice chilli heat running through the back of it.

"The thing with the curry leaf, it's nice and crispy but because they are curry leaves, they stay quite greasy."

Gregg was next up to take a look and while he praised Woei for his 'light and fluffy' rice, he was unable to not comment on the elephant in the room – his undercooked and raw chicken.

Admitting he felt "uncomfortable" by the dish, Gregg explained: "I have issues with this chicken. there's a pink tinge on the insides of my bits of chicken, which are putting me off.

"They're undercooked. Not all of it but enough to make me uncomfortable."

Woei took the criticism in his stride and demonstrated excellent understanding to what Gregg had told me.

Speaking to the camera, he said: "You have to learn how to take criticism as well. Resilience is the most important part of life."

Fortunately, Woei was one of four hopefuls who managed to move onto the next stage of the contest in the quest to become the BBC's next MasterChef champion.
