‘What on earth!’ Celebrity MasterChef viewers are left ‘feeling sick’ after singer Melanie Blatt serves up lamb dish with ‘disturbing’ amount of peas

Celebrity MasterChef viewers were left ‘feeling sick’ during Tuesday night’s show after singer Melanie Blatt served up a pea and lamb dish.

The former All Saints singer, 47, was criticised by those watching at home for using a ‘disturbing amount of peas’ to go with her meat.

Her full dish consisted of a pan-fried loin of lamb, served on a lawn of minted puree and buttered peas with asparagus tips, cheesy dauphinoise potatoes, braised carrots and a Madeira gravy.

She had made the dish resemble a garden, with the peas acting as the grass along with flowers and a plant pot on the side.  

Commenting on the course, judge Gregg Wallace admitted: ‘It doesn’t have the spectacular appeal of the other dishes, but Mel, you can really cook.’

However fans at home weren’t impressed, with one writing on Twitter: ‘What on earth is Mel thinking? I feel sick looking at her plate – far too many peas for my liking!’

Echoing their comments, someone else said: ‘Those peas are a bit off-putting. What an awful dish!’

While a third joked: ‘I think Mel’s dish needs more peas…’

Love Island star Faye Winter, Strictly Come Dancing professional Katya Jones, actor Ryan Thomas and McFly singer Danny Jones were announced last month as being among the celebrities taking part in the series.

Joining them in the BBC One show have been TV presenter Lisa Snowdon, former EastEnders star Cliff Parisi, and star of The Choir Gareth Malone.
