Celebrity MasterChef is back on our screens and we couldn’t be more excited. You’re in for a treat this series as there’s a star-studded line up.
How are they all going to cope under the pressure, not to mention the watchful eyes of John Torode and Gregg Wallace?
With a handful of soap stars, pop stars and a TV presenter here and there, we’re ready for an all-singing, all-dancing and all-cooking show. Bring it on!
Click through to see which celebrities are taking part in Celebrity MasterChef 2014…
You know him from… Coronation Street. Ken is a comedian and actor best known for his role as Reg Holdsworth in Coronation Street. This jolly fellow now wants to try his chances on MasterChef – we’re bracing ourselves for some crackers (we mean jokes, not food of course!)
VOTED OFF – Ken gave it his all in the professional kitchen and under the watchful eye of John and Gregg but his Asian-inspired salmon just wasn’t good enough.
You know her from… What Not to Wear. Susannah is a fashion journalist who hosted a couple of shows alongside partner in crime Trinny Woodall, which included What Not to Wear and Trinny and Susannah Undress. Hopefully the chef whites will be up to Susannah’s style standards!
VOTED OFF – Susannah just couldn’t handle the pressure of the MasterChef kitchen and just didn’t impress Gregg and John enough to take her into the next round.
You know him from… the wonderful world of astrology. Russell is a British astrologer and media personality. He’s popped up on TV in shows such as This Morning and Strictly Come Dancing, and has published several books about his love of astrology. Looks like Russell is now ready for some serious cooking.
VOTE OFF – We were sad to see Russell get the boot but someone had to go and he seemed pretty relieved about it too.
You know him from… EastEnders, and Grange Hill back in the day. Todd has been on our screens since 1978 and danced his way back into our hearts on Dancing On Ice in 2009. He now fancies himself as a bit of a chef and is ready to show John and Gregg what he’s made of.
VOTED OFF – Todd’s spring rolls just weren’t to John and Gregg’s standards. We were sad to see him leave in the first episode.
You know her from… modelling. Jodie has been modelling since the age of 15 so is familiar with the pressure and limelight. Let’s hope she can keep her cool under the watchful eyes of John and Gregg.
You know her from… EastEnders. Sophie played scary Stella Crawford in EasterEnders back in the day, leaving the set in 2007. She also managed to bag a role in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 2010 as Mafalda Hopkirk and is the younger sister of Emma Thompson. She’s now ready to take on the MasterChef pressure.
You know her from… Silent Witness. Amanda is best known for her television role as Sam Ryan in the BBC crime drama series. She also played Heather Black in the Channel 4 soap opera Brookside. Amanda’s now taken a shine to cooking and we’re looking forward to seeing her in action.
You know her from… This Morning. Alison is part of the presenting team on ITV’s This Morning. She became famous after appearing on Big Brother and has taken part in a variety of reality TV shows including Celebrity Fit Club and Stars in Their Eyes. Looks like MasterChef is next on the list!
You know her from… EastEnders. Emma played Honey Mitchell for three years on the Albert Square set and made several appearances back on screen earlier this year. She’s now ready to roll up those sleeves and give her fellow celebs a run for their money.
You know him from… JLS. This all dancing, all singing lad makes up one quarter of the former band JLS, founded on The X Factor back in 2006. We never knew JB had some cooking skills on his résumé – we can’t wait to watch him in action.
You know him from… the telly. Christopher Biggins starred alongside Ronnie Barker in Porridge back in the day and has been busy acting and presenting ever since. He also won I’m A Celeb a while back, too. Now he’s swapping creepy crawlies for gourmet feasts.
You know him from… the big screen in movies such as Shanghai Noon and TV series Robin of Sherwood. Oh, and his biggest claim to fame? He’s Sir Sean Connery’s son! But how handy is he in the kitchen?
You know him from… the telly. Charley Boorman is an English TV presenter, travel writer and actor known for his love of motorbikes. He’s taken part in a variety of theatre productions and does his bit for charity on a regular basis, which is always good to hear. Let’s see how he gets on.
You know her from… Men Behaving Badly. Leslie is an English actress most famously known for playing girlfriend/wife of Neil Morrissey’s character in Men Behaving Badly. She also acted in BBC police procedural Merseybeat and ITV’s Where the Heart Is. Her apron’s at the ready!
You know her from… the 70s. Pauline Matthews, better known by her stage name Kiki Dee, was a well-known singer in the 70s and recorded a rather famous duet with Elton John called ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’. Let’s hope John and Gregg don’t break Kiki’s heart in the MasterChef kitchen.
You know him from… EastEnders. Back in the day, Alex played one of the scariest bad guys in the history of soap, Trevor Morgan, and was titled ‘Britain’s most-hated soap villain’ in the early 2000s. Let’s hope his cooking is as good as his acting.
You know her from… Made in Chelsea. Millie is mostly known for her appearance in our favourite TV guilty pleasure, Made in Chelsea. She is also a make-up artist and now fancies her hand at cooking.
You know her from… CNBC. Tania has met and interviewed a whole host of well-known faces including Bill Clinton, Naomi Campbell and Jon Bon Jovi. Time to add the dynamic duo, John Torode and Gregg Wallace, to this list.
You know her from… Holby City. Tina is best known for her long-running role as Chrissie in the medical drama Holby City. Looks like she’s ready to swap the scalpel for a kitchen knife instead.
You know him from… the stage. Wayne Sleep is a well-known dancer, director, actor and choreographer. He took part in I’m A Celeb back in 2003 and is currently a judge on ITV’s series Stepping Out. We’re looking forward to seeing him perform in the MasterChef kitchen.
