Celebrity MasterChef backlash as fans say Danny was ‘robbed’ of win

Celebity MasterChef fans were split after Lisa Snowdon was crowned the winner of this year's contest by beating former McFly singer Danny Jones and All Saints' Melanie Blatt.

Television and radio presenter Lisa stormed her way through the BBC competition as she impressed judges Greg Wallace and John Torode.

Whilst some were thrilled about Lisa's win, others felt that Danny had been "robbed" in the final, with one person tweeting: "Omg Danny was Robbed."

However, one of Lisa's fans wrote: "Her enthusiasm, energy and passion has had me hooked," adding: "I’ve loved watching her push herself each round. Great to see how much joy and excitement she’s got from this experience."

Lisa said she was ecstatic at the result, adding: “It’s such a life-changing experience. I feel like this isn’t real!

“I just can’t believe it. I couldn’t have wanted to win something that meant more to me than this. I can’t wait to tell my mum, my dad and my nephew. I am on cloud nine. I love it… I LOVE IT!”

Lisa beat 20 celebrity hopefuls on the show, after five weeks of heats, semi-finals, and the final week of culinary challenges.

Her winning menu was a starter of poached rhubarb and pan-fried mackerel, followed by the main course of duck breast with mushrooms and cavolo nero, and a chocolate tart for pudding.

Torode said: “Lisa throughout this competition has taken the everyday and elevated it into something special."

Wallace added: “Faint heart never lifts a MasterChef title and that is why Lisa is our Celebrity MasterChef champion.”

In the final, Lisa, Danny and Melanie were asked to create an afternoon tea for 12 iconic names from the world of television, radio, and journalism, and later in the kitchen a dish inspired by their childhood.
