After Su Pollard of Celeb MasterChef makes a blunder, John Torode walks away.
Before Su Pollard could explain why she had hacked a chicken on the first Celebrity MasterChef heat, JOHN TORODE walked away.
During the first heat of the competition, John Torode had to walk away from Celebrity MasterChef participant Su Pollard. It happened as the Hi-de-Hi! actress was competing in the ‘Under the Cloche’ challenge and “hacked” at the newborn chicken she was given to cook with, much to the chagrin of the Australian judge.
Sue was serving the chicken for judging after it had been roasted: “This isn’t really very good, is it?”
“What did you do to that chicken?” says the narrator. As he passed past her bench, John inquired.
Su answered, “Just went like that, sawed through it,” to which the judge replied, “You mean hacked it?”
“Yes, I hacked it,” says the hacker. “Are you permitted to break into computers?” John had already moved away before she could get an answer: “Oh probably not.”
Su remarked before her food was judged, “I’m just hoping it’s nice enough for others to appreciate.” And if it isn’t, I may have to start arranging flowers.”
“Garlic and lemon roasted puissant, paired with roast tomatoes and plums and a chicken sauce,” she informed Celebrity MasterChef fans about her dish.
When Gregg Wallace looked at the dish, he joked, “It’s a little hacked about, it looks like you prepped it in a mixer.”
“Your standout component was a tiny chicken, Su, and you cooked it really nicely,” John continued.
“I adore the sauce because it’s made using the chicken’s natural juices, lemon, and garlic – it’s fantastic!
“The roasted tomatoes on the side are too harsh for a tiny chicken because they’re bitter and acidic.
“How about a plum?” In Chinese cuisine, it’s fine with duck, but not with a tomato or with wonderful lemon-garlic chicken,” the chef remarked.
“That is not an easy thing to cook; it requires good timing, and you have good timing,” Gregg said.
Despite a few kitchen accidents, people watching at home were delighted to see Su.
“As awful as it sounds, I want @Su Pollard into the next round of Celebrity @MasterChefUK for comic value alone!” one person wrote on Twitter. She’s hysterical!”
“Su Pollard is one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. “Brinkwire Summary News”, #supollard.
