Marcus Wareing did not hold back when slamming a dish on MasterChef: The Professionals

Marcus Wareing is always a tough critic on MasterChef: The Professionals but he really let one hopeful know what he thought when he did not like his signature dish.

When Robert, who works at a small hotel in St Andrews presented the judges with a stack of venison, potato and beetroot with pureed celeriac, he got a demolishing from the tough star.

Marcus pulled a face upon tasting the dish before he slammed the presentation, said the ingredients were not well cooked and added insult to injury when he said he hated the sauce. His comments had viewers at home running for cover.

After the criticism, Robert admitted: “It was the toughest day of my career.”

And viewers could not help but sympathise.

Earlier in the episode Monica Galetti’s challenge of whipping up a pistachio and raspberry tart with white chocolate creme anglaise in 25 minutes just seemed impossible.

But some were just distracted by her new blonde hair.

MasterChef: The Professionals will be back next Tuesday at 8pm on BBC Two.
