Edinburgh: Nutan 39x47

Meanwhile, Lynne surprises everyone at the table with her choice of celebrity lookalike.
Leeds: Danielle 39x38
It's the third night of the competition in Leeds, and fun-loving student Danielle is hoping her hearty and high calorie menu will bag her the prize.

Leeds: Andy 39x37
It's night two of the competition in Leeds, and company director Andy is hoping to win the grand with a menu of fancy restaurant inspired fare. But Alice and Danielle are more impressed with Andy's Ferrari than his food. And Lynne is more concerned with turning out a perfect Mojito in the cocktail making challenge than anything else.

Conversation is dominated by Steve's dodgy impressions and a continuing flirtation between Julie and Justin. The question is, will the budding new couple display their affection publicly?

Belfast: Justin 39x33

Debonair Paul has cut a dash already this week with his sense of style and now he's hoping to impress with his fine food. For Ryan and Neil, most of the fancy fare is unchartered territory, and while Cailin and Claire are impressed with his fine dining, he sails close to the wind when he suggests they might like to be his ladies-in-waiting. With his golf club crooner to entertain and his quail and langoustines to please the guests' palates, will Paul have the winning combination to clinch the ú1000 prize?
Belfast: Neil 39x24
On the second day in and around Belfast, it's the turn of carpenter and country boy Neil to do his best to land this week's ú1000 prize. He's hoping some good old fashioned country style cuisine will be enough to tantalise the taste buds of his guests, and with more than a few surprises in store, he's confident he can pull off a winning performance. With a farmyard full of animals joining in the fun, discussions ranging from disabled chickens to eating stinging nettles and a guest performance from Neil's very own creation, 'head in a jar' it's going to be a very weird and wonderful journey out in the countryside.
Belfast: Claire 39x23

With a night full of flowing competitive juices, pensioner put-downs and dodgy dance moves, will 'must win' Kim bag the grand?

She's got a trick up her sleeve and will be performing reiki on her food to make sure she's in with a chance of winning the £1000 prize. It's an entertaining night with support worker Martin and loud Lottie in fits of giggles over Justina's demonstration of an unusual event involving an arrow that could kill a 20-foot bear. Whilst company director Anthony may not be the biggest fan of the meat-free food, he hasn't laughed so much in a long time and the atmosphere is the night's saviour.
Preston: Martin 39x06
In this brand new episode, second to host in Preston is support worker Martin Ainsworth, who hopes his menu of classics with a twist will go down a treat with his guests. The night starts well when men's barber Lottie is pleasantly surprised by the risky black pudding starter. Unfortunately, sales director Anthony's steak is overcooked and the chocolate brownie dessert is dry. The food's not the only thing that doesn't go down well, as vegan Justina finds the noise levels all a bit much, with the main culprit being Lottie. It's a noisy night with some passion and poetry thrown in, but will it be enough to bag Martin the £1000 prize?
Preston: Lottie 39x05
In this brand new episode the culinary competition is in and around Preston, where the first to host is 29-year-old men's barber Lottie, affectionately known as 'Foghorn'.
