Twenty celebrity contestants, including presenter Melanie Sykes and ex-supermodel Penny Lancaster, are putting their culinary skills to the test.

On the August 16 episode, the contestants struggled to make Vietnamese pancakes from scratch without a recipe.

They were also set the challenge of making a meal with just one mystery ingredient, in what the show calls the 'Under The Cloche' challenge.

Although Great British Sewing Bee judge Patrick Grant impressed the judges after making a chocolate cake in the mystery challenge, the 49-year-old had to accept failure in the pancake challenge, after trying (and failing) to cook the dish several times.

He wasn't the only one to stumble, however – in fact, none of the celebs managed to recreate the Vietnamese classic.

In the final round, Patrick attempted a deconstructed feta cheesecake, but failed to do enough to secure his place in the competition.

Judge Gregg Wallace was especially unimpressed with the dessert, and compared the dish to a "creamy, fruity puddle."

But Patrick was able to look on the bright side of being eliminated, calling his time on the show a "big learning experience".

He added that his first mistake was daring to mess with a classic Cheesecake.

Other celebs fared better, with the judges praising former TOWIE star Megan McKenna for her champagne chicken and for her trout, making her the star of the episode.
