Celebrity MasterChef 2013: Who’s Cooking?


It seems like John Torode and Gregg Wallace have only just put down their forks, but MasterChef is coming back.

The new Celebrity MasterChef line-up has just been announced, and it contains the usual random assortment of grannies’ favourites, sports stars and the odd “who he?”.

After a few years in the wilderness, airing first in the afternoons and then in the evenings on BBC Two,  Celebrity MasterChef  has been welcomed back into the BBC One prime time fold.

Battling it out three nights a week for six weeks will be: entertainer Les Dennis; actors John Thomson, Denise Black, Brian Capron and actor and musician Ade Edmondson; comedians Katy Brand and Shappi Khorsandi; TV presenter Miranda Krestovnikoff; triple jumper Phillips Idowu, cricketer Matthew Hoggard and boxer Joe Calzaghe; organic entrepreneur Jo Wood; singer Heidi Range, Mercury Award-winning rapper Speech Debelle and Boyzone’s Shane Lynch; and writer and broadcaster, Janet Street-Porter.

Executive producer for the BBC, Carla-Maria Lawson, says: “The return of Celebrity MasterChef to this BBC One peak time slot sees thrills and spills and some extraordinary cooking from our line-up of well known faces.  In this series, the contestants’ enthusiasm in their pursuit of the MasterChef trophy is palpable, often inspiring and sometimes very, very funny.”
