Model behaviour from Danielle in 'Hell's Kitchen'

Two of the celebrity chefs battling it out in Hell's Kitchen cheated in the pasta challenge, but only one was brave enough to admit their guilt.

Two of the celebrity chefs battling it out in 'Hell's Kitchen' cheated in the pasta challenge, but only one was brave enough to admit their guilt.

Contestants were shown how to make fresh pasta by American chef Mario Batali and then given 45 minutes to make ravioli.

With several of the celebrities struggling to make the dish, comic Adrian Edmondson and model Danielle Bux ended up using the pasta Mario made earlier.

The challenge also proved too tough for 'Shameless' star Jody Latham who threw his pasta away and decided not to serve it rather than dish up food he was not happy with.

The results were judged by Mario and Marco Pierre White who praised former footballer Bruce Grobbelaar's unusual sauce of tomatoes, onions and baked beans.

Marco said: "Nice. I liked the fact you used baked beans. It's tasty, like your sandwich, like everything you do."

Anthea Turner also came in for praise but Niomi MacLean-Daley, aka rapper Ms Dynamite, was told by Marco her food "could have sunk the Titanic".

Adrian's dish of roast beef, horseradish and red wine pasta received high praise but the judges did not know Adrian was using pasta Mario had already made.

The comic stayed tight-lipped as the compliments came his way but Danielle admitted the truth.

She said: "Hi Mario can I just admit to something? I used your pasta. I just used my initiative, I didn't know what else to do."

Marco said: "Is that what you call it? Initiative?"

Danielle criticised Adrian in the confessional and described him as "a pasta nicker".

Justice was done in the end when Linda Grant won the best dish award for her recipe.

Anthea Turner's husband Grant Bovey started the night looking forward to getting out of the kitchen and working as a waiter.

But he got more than he bargained for when one of his customers, chat show host Matthew Wright, complained his food was cold.

He sent his plate back to the kitchen with Bovey telling the team "It's Matthew Wright, he's being an a**e"
