In October he earned the accolade UK's best young cook in the Great British Pub Awards 2021.

The 25-year-old chef studied cookery at the former East Kent College, now Broadstairs College.

He then gained roles in the kitchen of TV chef Tom Kerridge's pub, The Hand & Flowers in Marlow and the Michelin-starred Sportsman at Seasalter.

And now, he's making a name for himself on the 14th series of Masterchef: The Professionals where 32 chefs battle it out for the crown.

He is one of nine chefs already in the quarter finals with four still left to compete in a heat.

Masterchef: The Professionals is on BBC One on Mondays at 7:30pm, Thursdays at 9pm and Fridays at 8.30pm.
