Lisa Faulkner has admitted she is terrified of MasterChef judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode.

The former Holby City actress has made it to the final of the cooking competition, and told the Daily Mirror what she thinks of the judges.

She said: “They are both so nice but equally scary. You just want to say to them ‘can you help me a minute?’ and they just walk away. Gregg’s so cheeky.”

Lisa, who faces Christine Hamilton and Dick Strawbridge in the final, added that she was excited about cooking on the Orient Express in the final cooking challenge.

She said: “I never thought I’d get to go on the Orient Express. Emotions run high because we’re in competition but it’s because you want to do well and not let anyone down.”
