MASTERCHEF fans are fuming after one contestant seemingly coasted through to the next round without actually cooking anything.
The popular cooking competition show returned to BBC One tonight along with hosts John Torode and Gregg Wallace.
Monday’s episode saw the first lot of contestants – Ross, Dominique, Mike, Madeeha and Tom – try to impress the judges to move on to the next round.
But things turned sour for the audiences at when Dominique was sent packing, and Ross got to live another day in the MasterChef despite not actually cooking anything.
The judges reviewed Ross’ white crab meat with Gregg saying, “it’s fresh, it’s almost sweet.”
“My slight disappointment is that there’s no cooking,” he added.
“But it does taste really, really good.”
John also shared his opinion: “There’s a not a lot of actual texture, texture. It needs a crispbread or something with it.”
But then admitted the dish tasted ‘flawless’, while viewers fumed Dominique had been “robbed” because Ross “didn’t even cook anything?”.
“When you come on a cooking competition and don’t cook anything… #MasterChefUK #MasterChef,” wrote one angry fan on Twitter.

Another added: “Why’s Dominique going home ?? #masterchef The other didn’t even cook he just put crab in a plate.”
