The best reaction tweets from Celebrity Masterchef Ireland's debut

The celebrities cooked up a storm last night on RTE Masterchef. Here’s how people reacted.

CELEBRITY MASTERCHEF MADE its debut on RTE last night.

Celebrity chef Dylan McGrath challenged eight well-known Irish personalities to battle it out in the kitchen, but there wasn’t a stew to be seen. Instead, each contestant had to cook a dish that best reflected their personality (them on a plate) and a crepe suzette for dessert.

The varying levels of success achieved caused some hot debate on Twitter.

The contestants could barely watch it themselves

People got hungry

Aengus Mac Grianna emerged as the series' stud

Comparisons were made

Have we ever actually seen them in the same room together?

Were you watching? Who are you backing to win?
