The chef explained: "My dessert, Trifle Derry Girls, is born of my love for the show and an episode in particular where Ma Mary borrows Michelle’s Aunt Sarah’s big bowl."
He also added: "When I read the brief and realised it was related to broadcasting, I knew my dessert just had to be a trifle of some sort, and no trifle is more classic than a retro sherry trifle.”
Spencer on the other hand impressed the judges and won the fish course by cooking his fish dish named ‘Be careful what you fish for'.
The meal was inspired by his love for Sherlock Holmes and consisted of unique ingredients including brill, smoked beurre blanc, dulse, finger lime, chives, marinated grapes and sea vegetables.
