It comes after 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.

‘What on earth is Mel thinking? I feel sick looking at her plate – far too many peas for my liking!’ one fan commented on Twitter. 

Another added: ‘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…’

Meanwhile, the star said her highlight of the series had been when Dame Mary Berry made a surprise appearance during the semi-finals stage.

McFly singer Danny, 36, said he’s ready to give it his best shot during the finale.

‘At the final you’ve got nothing to lose, I wanted to make everything taste, look and be presented as good as I practised it so that I made a good impression of myself as a finalist. 

‘My biggest fear was to get my lamb perfectly cooked.’

Danny also reflected on becoming friends with the other contestants, saying: ‘The last six or seven became really close as we were a smaller group and we were going through the same experience in terms of the pressure, and we supported each other and helped each other.

‘If one of us were worried about something we’d help them out, so it was quite nice having that. Some nice healthy competition.’

TV presenter Lisa, 50, said she was most fearful of ‘the jeopardy of cooking duck’ during the final.

She added: ‘I’d previously cooked (Irish chef) Anna Haugh’s dish, which was duck and waffle. I got it out of the oven and cut it straight away – it didn’t have time to rest.

‘That was a big learning curve, so I said to myself, ‘If I get through to the final I’m going to cook duck’.

‘I knew all eyes would be on me and that Gregg would be like, ‘Really? You’re going to do that again when you messed it up before?”

Twenty contestants have been whittled down to three over six weeks of cookery challenges and eliminations.

The final will see them present a three-course meal in two hours that will be judged by Gregg Wallace and John Torode, in a bid to win the coveted MasterChef title.

This year’s cohort of famous names also included former boxing champion Chris Eubank, TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher, former pro-footballer Jimmy Bullard and actor Ryan Thomas.

The final of Celebrity MasterChef airs on BBC One on September 22 at 8.30pm.
