John Torode and Gregg Wallace have moved from judging flopped soufflés on MasterChef to eating their way around Heathrow airport.

The pair have written a guide to dining out at the London airport called Food on the Fly after Heathrow chiefs commissioned them to eat their way around the 73 bars, restaurants and cafés at the airport.

A tough job but someone's got to do it.

The BBC MasterChef judges were given a six-month challenge to improve the airport dining experience, which serves up over 26 million orders a year.

After having full access to all areas of the airport restaurants, the pair have advised food bosses to offer a healthier selection of dishes for travellers and to champion British produce more.

'We were really amazed by the choice of food and the service at the airport. These people do an incredible job, especially given that they are open from 5am to almost midnight, every day,' said John Torode.

'I think Heathrow has come on incredibly well. The days when you'd get there, it stank and all you could get was a truly dire full English breakfast have gone,' he added.

More than 10,000 copies of the guide will be given to passengers and it will be available to view online from July.
