Sinitta was the first to be eliminated on 'Celebrity Masterchef' on the first episode of the new series on Wednesday (22.06.16)
Sinitta has been axed from 'Celebrity Masterchef'.
The 'So Macho' hitmaker was the first to leave the eleventh series of the BBC one competition on Wednesday night (22.06.16) after she accidentally served up raw meat to masterminds and co-hosts Gregg Wallace and John Torode.
Despite almost giving the pair salmonella with her disastrous creation, the 52-year-old star was proud of her efforts.
She added: "I'm feeling proud of myself that I took on the challenge. I had an amazing experience and I made new friends. I just want to wish good luck to everybody."
The brunette beauty - who went head-to head with comedian Tommy Cannon, TV presenter Donna Air, Alexis Conran and 'vlogger' Marcus Butler in last night's show - has admitted she was "nervous" prior to creating her dishes, but believes her creations were visually "stunning" works of art.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "I'm doing some very creative and visually stunning dishes. I've made a very ugly squid look beautiful. I've done some vegetables with lamb - I think it was lamb anyway. And I served brilliantly, I think, in a real restaurant kitchen. I was quite nervous. I didn't want to go too far and ruin my dishes. "
However, the judges were not as impressed with her cuisine.
Speaking on the programme, John said: "Your aubergine is not very nice and the lamb tastes of lamb."
Whilst Gregg swiftly chimed in: "That's raw meat! I don't know what to say as the meat and the pastry are raw and it's a meat and pastry dish. Not good, I'm afraid!"
Meanwhile, John and Gregg eventually had to turn down sampling Sinitta's menu in fear of being poisoned.
'Celebrity Masterchef' will continue to run over a six-week period and will air on BBC One at 8pm.
