When will the finals be?

This will be the show's final week, with the finale being shown on Friday, May 15, 2020.

Each day this week, the contestants will cook a different course, starting today the starters, and ending on Thursday with the desserts.

Friday will be the day of the banquet, where the winning chefs cooks their courses in celebration of nearly 200 years of British children’s literature.

This will be a daunting task for the show's winner who will have over a hundred mouths to feed, including the best of children literature's talent, such as – Jacqueline Wilson, Cressida Cowell and Anthony Horowitz.

Who are the Great British Menu judges and presenter?

The judges of the series are Irish restaurateur Oliver Peyton, restaurateur Andi Oliver and food critic Matthew Fort.

Andi Oliver replaced Prue Leith as a judge after she joined the revamped version of The Great British Bake Off on Channel 4 in 2017.

Both Matthew and Oliver were part of the original line-up when the show was first created back in 2006.

It’s not just up to the three judges, however, as each week a guest judge will be joining them to help select the best dishes from each region in the Friday regional final.

Presenter and comedian Susan Calman has featured in this year’s tougher competition, which involves an extra chef to beat and someone leaving daily during the heats.

New host Susan told whatsontv:  "I’ve watched every series, scored every dish, disagreed with the judges from my sofa – and now I’m hosting it!"

How does the Great British Menu work?

Each competitor is scored on their dishes, with the chef with the highest score making the final.

The winner from each region will then battle to see if their dish could make the Great British menu.

Winning dishes are awarded for starter, fish course, main course, and dessert.

One cook is then crowned Champion of Champions – voted for by diners at a final banquet.
