Heston Blumenthal, Niklas Ekstedt and Carla Hall brings us more Crazy Delicious.
ONE TO WATCH: CRAZY DELICIOUS, CHANNEL 4 at 8pm
Everyday meals are turned into extraordinary culinary creations in this magical new food competition.
Bored by the same old dishes, renowned chefs and ‘Gods of Food’ Heston Blumenthal, Niklas Ekstedt and Carla Hall challenge the UK’s most talented food lovers to produce remarkable meals that must impress with originality, visual flair and extraordinary flavours.
Comedian and foodie Jayde Adams presents the series in which ingredients are picked, plucked and snipped from an enchanted garden on the world’s first edible set, which contains edible blossom, chocolate soil and a drinkable babbling brook. The innovative cooking competition concludes as the final three pioneering cooks compete to be awarded the Gods’ golden apple and the knowledge that they’ve impressed three of the world’s greatest chefs.
All three cooks hoping to impress the Food Gods are mad about fusion, with mum Tiffany using flavours from America and Asia, karate-loving Tony drawing on his Indian and Italian roots, and food blogger Romy bringing a vegan spin to her dishes. First, they must make mushrooms the star of a brand-new dish, before pushing themselves to the limit by reinventing the cheese toastie in ways never imagined before. Bold new dishes such as arancini drumsticks, spam rice sandwiches and paratha pancakes are on the menu, but only two cooks can progress to the final round where they go head to head to produce a unique twist on a takeaway meal.
Creativity is pushed to the limits and surprises are served up aplenty, as the cooks battle to be crowned the winner and take home the Gods’ golden apple.

RIVER CITY, BBC ONE SCOTLAND at 8pm
Bob makes it clear to Angus he doesn’t want him as a pal or a colleague and their friendship is beyond repair. Later, when Bob is called out to a breakdown in a remote location, Angus hides in the back of the van to force them to talk. Bob is gobsmacked and reluctantly agrees to let Angus tag along.
When the pair arrive on the scene, Bob’s oblivious that the customer is Jill Amuka, Rory’s dodgy lawyer, and that this is a set-up. As Bob works on the car, Angus is stabbed by one of Rory’s men and Bob meets a similar fate seconds later.
Lying bleeding and wounded on the ground, the friends fight for their lives and experience flashbacks. Elsewhere, Scarlett is worried sick about Bob and urges Angus to keep an eye out for her son. As the day goes on Scarlett can’t shake the feeling Bob is in danger – and her worst fears are realised.
River City airs tonight at 8.00pm on BBC One Scotland. Viewers outside of Scotland can watch River City on the iPlayer.
