TELEVISION REVIEW: Masterchef (BBC1)
TV show Masterchef - you know the one? with the bald grocer and the chef? the whole HYPERBOLE DOESN’T GET MORE HYPERBOLIC THAN THIS? – has been turned into X Factorchef in a post watershed slot – with only the odd sliced finger and close-up of blood seeping from the wound to justify the later hour.
