Cream of the crop: MasterChef winner is unveiled

TV cooking competition MasterChef has crowned Shelina Permalloo as its 2012 winner.

Shelina, from Tooting, south London, beat Andrew Kojima and Tom Rennolds in the show's final to become the second woman to win the title in eight years.

Her winning menu was an octopus starter, mutton curry and a dessert of mango cannelloni filled with lime curd, prepared in a nail-biting last cooking marathon.
