Among them are Strictly Come Dancing’s Katya Jones, former Love Islander Faye Winter, All Saints’ Mel Blatt and McFly singer Danny Jones.

The Wire actor Clarke Peters will join Birds Of A Feather icon Lesley Joseph and soap favorites Cliff Parisi, Richard Blackwood and Ryan Thomas in the kitchen, while Nancy Dell’Olio and kid favorite Paul Chuckle round out the cast.

After a hugely successful MasterChef finale earlier this year, Celebrity MasterChef features four heat weeks focused on cutting the celebrities; test their skills until only the best reach the final stages.

The series will again feature a series of cooking challenges designed to push the celebrities’ culinary skills to the limit, including the recurring challenges in the Heat Rounds; Under The Cloche, The Street Food Challenge and Dinner Party Dish.

Then the top celebrity chefs take on the nerve-wracking and exciting challenges during the semi- and final-week phases.

In the wake of the pandemic, the semi-finalists and finalists in this series face challenges cooking for a large number of people, including a special centenary challenge to mark the BBC’s 100th anniversary.

Katie Attwood, Editor of MasterChef Series, said: “Celebrity MasterChef is a firm favorite on the television calendar and a must-see, and this series is as fun, engaging and exciting as ever.

“John and Gregg will be delighted, as will our viewers.”
