One of his components melted into the sauce and he had to plate up without it.
He said: "This round was a disappointing one for me as I strive for perfection and anything less is disappointing."
Judge Jason Atherton said all the chefs struggled with the main course, with mistakes made by all three.
Mr Atherton said to Colin: "Your turnips and duck leg were cooked beautifully but the breast was a bit over done."
Colin scored 7 points with his dish, keeping him in the lead with 23 points.
Colin will continue to battle for a prize of cooking at a comic relief banquet on the Great British Menu again tomorrow with his pudding, at 7.30pm on BBC2.
