Gregg Wallace is notorious for cracking bad jokes to 'MasterChef' contestants, finalist Jane Devonshire has revealed
Gregg Wallace cracks bad jokes to the 'MasterChef' finalists.
The 51-year-old judge is the "life and soul" of the kitchen, according to finalist Jane Devonshire, and John Torode is always on hand to give "cheffy tips".
She said: "They are both incredibly helpful within the limitations of the competition.
"John gives you cheffy tips that as a home cook you just wouldn't ever know, and Gregg is the life and soul, constantly making jokes (some very bad), that keep you smiling. They are always very fair."
Whilst fellow finalist Billy Wright added of the judging duo: "Gregg was very helpful in the beginning, making you feel comfortable. Then as the cooking hots up, John gives the occasional hint and tip which are invaluable. I get on well with both."
The third and final contestant Jack Layer - who is set to battle against Billy and Jane to be crowned MasterChef finalist on Friday evening (06.05.16) - says the group became really close after travelling to Mexico together.
He added: "Travelling to Mexico really brought us together, I'm lucky to have met them all and I'm excited about what the future holds for all of us as. I know we'll be there cheering each other on. Myself and Billy are looking to do some stuff ... so watch this space.
"[The highest point of the series for me] was standing in the street food market in Mexico! A real 'I can't believe I'm doing this' moment. It's a cliché, but it was a once in a lifetime experience."
Meanwhile, Jane also revealed her favourite meal is her mother's roast dinners as she believes food is about the "whole experience" not just what is on the plate.
She added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I love all food, but the best food for me has to be my mum's family roast dinners. Good food is about so much more than what's on the plate - it's the whole experience.
"With that said restaurants that bring an experience to your eating are my favourite, and I think a Squid dish in the most beautiful broth that I ate at Jason Atherton's Pollen Street Social really sticks in my mind."
