Jodie Kidd is surprised she has made it to the final three on 'Celebrity MasterChef', and believes she's overcome her "underdog" status along the way

Jodie Kidd is shocked she has made it to the 'Celebrity MasterChef' final.

The model, 35, thinks she was seen as an outsider at the start of the competition, but believes she has overcome the odds to leave her on the cusp of winning.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she said: "I was a bit of the underdog, so I'm really proud to show that through grit and determination, you can do it.

"I put my head down and I tried and tried - and made it to the final. Unbelievable."

Jodie's fellow finalist 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' actress Sophie Thompson insists her secret to success on the BBC One show is to simply enjoy the experience.

Asked what she'd learnt throughout the series, she replied: "Just the joy of cooking. It's such a lovely thing to get on and do."

Meanwhile, Jodie and Sophie will battle it out against adventurer Charley Boorman in tonight's (18.07.14) final and he admits, despite a botched effort to make a batch of macaroons, he has thoroughly enjoyed taking part.

He told The Sun newspaper: "Macaroons aside, I have had a brilliant experience.

"I didn't realise how much of an adrenaline rush I'd get from the challenges. It has been great fun."

The final of 'Celebrity MasterChef' will air tonight on BBC One at 8.30pm.
