Name: Natalie Coleman
Occupation: Credit controller and part-time DJ
Natalie has won over viewers with her down-to-earth personality and East London accent. She admits if she was stranded on a desert island she’d pick Gregg over John for company “because he’s south cockney and I’m an east cockney- we’d have a right laugh”.
She’s also a part-time DJ, having started a club night in Shoreditch, East London with her best friend Ed. The two have gone on to play at clubs such as Cargo and Fabric as well as at music festivals.
If Natalie were to win MasterChef she would give up her day job, which she describes as being a bit “9-5 Dolly Parton”, to pursue her love of food. “All I want to do is go and cook in a kitchen every day. That would be my dream,” she says.
