CHEF Sven-Hanson Britt has made it through to the finals of Masterchef.

Sven used to work as a plate washer at Banks Bar Bistro in Bishop’s Waltham.

He has since created dishes at The Ritz in London.

In last night’s show, he was tasked with making a three-course meal for 25 of the country’s top chefs. His main was a roasted loin of lamb with a herb crust, a poached lamb’s tongue and vegetables.

He received praise for his efforts.

He said: ‘I’m over the moon. It’s really good feedback.

‘My heart was racing when I went in there. I didn’t even get a chance to look at all the faces. It’s amazing.’

It continues tonight at 8pm on BBC2.
