This time, the Bonehams from Weston-super-Mare take on the stylish Antonious from London, the competitive Bird family and the all-singing, all-dancing Fasayes from Kent. All four families enter the Showdown kitchen, totally unprepared for their first challenge - to make a £10 meal for a family of four with a surprise selection of ingredients. After cooking up 'breakfast with a twist' for their second task, they then face elimination, as only three families can make it through to next day's heat.
Tonight it is the play-offs. The four winning families from this week's heats now have to compete for just two places in finals week. First, there is another unprepared challenge to test their creativity in the kitchen - a surprise pick 'n' mix of ingredients that they all have to cook with. Then they are rustling up a family treat night meal and hoping to impress the judges enough to secure a place in finals week. On the menu tonight - duck, jollof rice, churros and chocolate and orange tarts.
This time, the three remaining families from previous day's heat face a surprise head-to-head challenge: one member from each family has to make a Tommy Banks favourite - chicken kiev. For the second task, the families are back together to make a two-course meal with goat's cheese and passion fruit as the star ingredients. The pressure is on as only two families can make it through to next Monday's play-offs.
This time, the Mistrys from south London take on the Whittakers from Lancashire, the Walker-Kings from Wandsworth and the Varmas from Walsall. All four families enter the Showdown kitchen totally unprepared for their first challenge - to make a £10 one-pot wonder with a surprise selection of ingredients.
Their second challenge is to cook up their family's take on fishcakes. Taking both dishes into account, judges Angellica Bell and Tommy Banks decide which three families can cook for them again in next day's heat.
