Celebrity MasterChef

Will hungry John and Gregg have to stop off for a kebab on the way home, as the celebrity version of his cookery contest MasterChef returns to BBC1

Proving you really don’t need to know how to cook to appear on this show are five folk about as comfortable in the kitchen as a turkey at Christmas. Maybe our standards are too high after the brilliant ‘proper’ MasterChef series where mere mortals cooked amazing food, but this lot are rubbish!

Star of The Real Hustle Alexis Conran, vlogger Marcus Butler, Donna Air, Tommy Cannon and Sinitta are our five and their first challenge is the Mystery Box – one plate of food from a selection including lamb mince and squid. Next, it’s off to the professional kitchen and finally their best two courses. At least the cooking can only get better, we hope!
