Fan favourite Amina Elshafei left the MasterChef Kitchen last night in a double elimination with and Jules Pike.
Blue team Amina, Audra, Andy, Deb, Jules and Wade were tested before ruthless chef Marco Pierre White, with Audra, Deb and Wade ruled safe. Andy survived the final battle.
The exit of Amina is a particular loss to the show, having been full of personality and bringing great diversity to the cast.
On Twitter last night, many felt it should have been Deb going home.
Amina said: “I’m feeling pretty sad and disappointed to be leaving. I had imagined of making the top 5, but I guess that’s out of the question now. However, I am leaving with wonderful memories, experiences, new friendships and an incredible confidence boost. I may be leaving now and missing out on top ten or top five, but I know it just means that I will be able to start making my dreams come true”
Jules added: “Masterchef has changed my life because this is something that not many people get to experience, and the fact that I got to be a part of it, wow!”
Meanwhile the show has now arrived at its Top 10, who head off for a week in Italy from Sunday.
The ten are: Kylie, Mindy, Julia, Ben, Beau, Alice, Audra, Deb, Wade and Andy.
Meanwhile the Daily Telegraph reports the finale will air on a Wednesday night this year, tipped to be July 25th.
