A line up of 20 familiar faces from the worlds of music, sport and showbusiness will step into the famous MasterChef kitchen as they bid to become the champion in an all new season of Celebrity Masterchef. Stand by for catastrophes, competitiveness, disasters and edge-of-seat moments as these celebrities attempt to prove they have what it takes in the battle for the coveted title.

Judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace taste their way through a range of lip-smacking and possibly distasteful dishes as they discover which of the 20 celebrities have the palate, imagination and culinary skill to make it through the heats and secure a place in the semi-finals. If they make it into the final three, they must draw on everything they’ve learnt during their MasterChef journey to impress the judges and be named champion.

This season’s celebrities include: former Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding, singer and songwriter Chesney Hawkes, actor Amanda Donohoe, comedian Syd Little, Paralympian Danny Crates, former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, actor Craig Gazey, choreographer Arlene Phillips, Strictly Come Dancing professional Natalie Lowe, TV presenter Keith Chegwin, and former boy band member Tom Parker.
