Masterchef finalist Dev Griffin admits trying to CHEAT in BBC show by smuggling his phone in to research recipes

DJ Dev Griffin confessed he tried to cheat on Celebrity Masterchef by plotting to “look up a recipe” on his phone.

Dev Griffin, 36, appeared on MasterChef in 2017 and made it as a finalist alongside Ulrika Jonsson and eventual winner, Angellica Bell.

However, the radio presenter admitted thought the much-loved cooking show was “fake” and could cheat by looking up recipes.

In Saturday’s episode on Ainsley’s Food We Love, guest Dev Griffin told Ainsley he got into cooking in the past few years.

Talking about his MasterChef appearance in 2017, Dev said is it was an “incredible” experience.

But he also admitted: “I thought they would fake a lot of stuff for the telly.”

Talking about one of his first challenges, he explained how they provided a lot of “random” ingredients and no instructions or recipe.

The Hackney-born DJ thought he could “look up a recipe on my phone” once the cameras “cut”.

He added: “You’re not allowed to bring your phone into the studio.”

But Dev was tempted to smuggle his phone in and look up recipes even though he wasn't allowed.

The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant said Masterchef was “one of the most stressful situations I’ve ever tried to cook in.”

Dev swapped the spinning decks for the famous dancefloor on Strictly in 2019.

Unfortunately, his time on the show was cut short as the pair were eliminated in week 3.

Speaking about his time on the show he said: "I'm not gonna lie I am absolutely gutted.

"But getting to learn how to dance and hanging out with Dianne and the other celebs has been amazing."

Dev dropped her on her on her head from eight feet in a horrific accident.

Dianne took to Twitter to reassure fans she was "fine" after being rushed to hospital amid fears she'd suffered a concussion.

Radio 1 presenter Dev Griffin returned to MasterChef once more for a Christmas special.
