Tonight's episode of Celebrity MasterChef saw two more candidates eliminated from the show as the remaining stars entered the semi-finals.

Following the departure of Frankie Bridge, the four remaining celebrities – Spencer Matthews, Jean Johansson, John Partridge and Anita Harris – were left to form two teams of two.

For the first challenge – in which the teams had to make an identical dish while on opposite sides of a wall – Spencer and Jean cooked quail and garlic mushrooms, while John and Anita made fishcakes with parsley sauce.

And it didn't take viewers long to notice Anita struggling.

In the next round, the teams were sent to Chessington World of Adventures, where they were tasked with providing lunch for 100 members of staff at the theme park.

John and Anita prepared a sweet potato Thai red curry, chicken chasseur with mash potato and bread and butter pudding for dessert.

Meanwhile, Spencer and Jean made a lamb stew, a vegetable ragu and an apple and rhubarb crumble – but it's safe to say viewers are getting somewhat fed up of crumbles.

Finally, the contestants were required to make a two-course meal for hosts John Torode and Gregg Wallace, as well as three of last year's finalists – Dev Griffin, Ulrika Jonsson and winner Angellica Bell.

Ultimately, it was Anita who failed to impress with her chicken creole and peach crumble, becoming the latest contestant to be sent home. She was joined by Jean, who also failed to hit the heights.

"I can't say I'm disappointed to be going home, because I don't think I deserve to go forward," said Jean of her elimination.

While Anita added: "I will look back at my MasterChef experience like a bit of golden sunshine in my life."

Spencer and John will now join Carol Martin Bayfield and Josh Cuthbert in the semi-finals, which begin at 9pm on BBC One next Wednesday, September 5.
