Dr Fernando, from North Berwick, Scotland, beat three other contestants to win the top prize. He watched the programme, aired on Channel 4 on Sunday, in his local pub.

Despite feeling nervous about watching the programme, he said: ‘It was brilliant, I had a few patients, work colleagues and neighbours there - it was really good fun.'

Dr Fernando served his three guests a starter of Cullen skink, a main of roe deer venison casserole and a Heston Blumenthal-style dessert - a ‘full Scottish breakfast’, with a panna cotta boiled egg and a chocolate brownie black pudding.

‘A couple of patients have phoned the practice asking for a dinner reservation,’ he said.

Dr Fernando donated half of his £1,000 prize money to the Edington Cottage Hospital which is connected to his practice in North Berwick.
