After its post-pandemic return, this episode also sees Gordon Ramsay tornado in to launch his new restaurant – complete with £1,000-a-roll wallpaper. Hollie Richardson

It’s back to the 1930s tonight, as the sewers compete on a series of retro challenges in the quarter-final.

For the pattern challenge, women’s sailor-inspired trousers – with tricky pockets – must be tackled. Alexi Duggins
