Singer songwriter Shivi Ramatour scraped into the MasterChef showstopper episode on Friday night relying on her famed pasta making. Viewers on Wednesday saw the 27 year old who grew up and was educated in Leicester struggle in the knockout round. Six contestants were competing for four places in Friday's show where they will have to cook one special dish to qualify for the semi finals. Yesterday she had to cook a lamb tagine in an industrial kitchen for British Airways aircraft engineers at Heathrow. But judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace were not impressed with Shivi who they had said was a "class act" in the previous round. John Torode said her lamb was over-cooked and Gregg Wallace said the couscous was the worst he had ever tasted. Shivi was one of four contestants that had to enter a cook off for the two remaining places. Shivi cooked ravioli which John liked as he had in a previous round. But Gregg did not like the mushroom and spinach filling and said: "I am losing faith in Shivi." However Shivi secured the final place. Speaking after the show Shivi said: "Working in the big kitchens was totally new for me. Being unfamiliar with the equipment and seasoning were huge issues." But she added: "I am determined to do the best I can to carry on. I think I will revert to my Caribbean heritage for my showstopper."
