The My Kitchen Rules grand final for 2015 is just days away, but unfortunately Melbourne friends Ash Pollard and Camilla Counsel (who were pegged as this year's "socialites") won't be competing, following their elimination from the show on Tuesday night's episode. Ash and Camilla went up against Will and Steve, the British lads from NSW, in the nail-biting semi-final, and after the two teams presented the judges with their three-course menus, Will and Steve scored 48 out of 60, beating Ash and Camilla's final score of 44.
Ash and Camilla have become one of the more memorable teams from this year's series — and it's not just due to Ash's instantly recognisable hair! The friends, who are big on etiquette and referred to their hometown Melbourne as "the Paris of the south," may not have received the most positive feedback from viewers when the show first started, but they certainly won over a big group of fans as they cooked their way towards the end.
We spoke to Ash and Camilla yesterday to get their thoughts on their semi-final performance, why Ash lost 7kg due to stress, and what they really thought about the instant restaurant rounds.
