The eagerly-awaited show was originally due to air earlier, but it was postponed because of the death of Prince Philip, which led the BBC to change its schedule.

The broadcaster said at the time: "With the sad news that HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, has died, there is now special coverage across all BBC networks to mark his life of extraordinary public service and planned scheduling has been suspended."

The BBC has now taken to Twitter to confirm that the final will air this week.

The broadcaster said on the micro-blogging platform: "The #MasterChef final will now be shown tomorrow night at 8pm on @BBCOne with @JohnTorode1 and @GreggAWallace. (sic)"

The highly-anticipated final will see Mike Tomkins, Alexina Anatole, and Tom Rhodes compete for the sought-after 'MasterChef' crown.

Meanwhile, Gregg Wallace recently revealed he wants to end food snobbery and is starting with the kebab.

The 'Masterchef' star think it is crazy how food is the "only snobbery allowed" as he slammed those who said they "didn't expect" to find him in restaurant chains like Harvester.

Speaking about food snobbery, he said: "I think it’s a class thing. There are people that would honestly think Pret a Manger is healthier than Greggs. Why? When I lived in Whitstable, Kent, I used a Harvester all the time in Herne Bay and people used to say, ‘I didn’t expect to see you in here’. Why wouldn’t I be in here? It’s the perception middle-class people eat in one and working-class people eat in the other, so the working-class one should be bad for you. It’s absolutely rubbish.

"Food is the only snobbery allowed. Imagine pulling up in your expensive car alongside somebody at the lights with a cheap car and saying, ‘Is that all you’ve got?’ But people do it with food."
