MasterChef viewers were left unimpressed with the latest instalment of the BBC One competition as contestants were tasked with making a salad with a Caesar dressing. During Thursday's (April 18) trip to the famous kitchen, the contestants tried their best to impress judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode to get an apron and land a place in the next round.

Four contestants were asked to make a salad of their choice using any of the ingredients they choose from the table. However, they had to make a Caesar dressing from the recipe left on the worktop.

"In this round you are going to think on your feet", John told the hopefuls, "So, we want you to make for us a salad. You can use any of the ingredients over there on the bench next to you. However, on your bench you all have a recipe for Caesar salad dressing. And we would like that to be the dressing for your salad."

A second stated: "Make a Caesar salad #masterchef 'Boring'". A third chimed in with: "Bloody ell, have they run out of meal ideas Caesar Salad."

"So you want the to make a Caesar Salad then? #MasterChef", cheekily added one fan. While another stated: "I mean.. if you can’t make a basic salad how the hell did you make it through to #MasterChef." "Boring #MasterChef", added another.
