Then, 486,000 sat down for My Kitchen Rules where it was time for identical twins Radha and Prabha to cook. During their tasting, the twins did the unthinkable. They left Colin Fassnidge – the toughest judge to impress – in tears, serving their late father’s favourite dish in their Instant Restaurant: Radha and Prabha’s Royal Dhaba. Speaking on Mediaweek and Chattr’s The Entertainment Hotline Podcast, Fassnidge revealed that the episode was filmed the week after Jock Zonfrillo had passed away. Even though their dessert left little to be desired, they scored 87/110 (including three 10s from Manu Feildel and Fassnidge for their entrée and main course) which placed them on the top of the leader board. The Front Bar then followed for 334,000.
