Former Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh, ex-EastEnders actor Todd Carty and JB Gill from JLS are among the celebrities set to take part in this year’s Celebrity MasterChef.
Model Jodie Kidd, I’m A Celeb winner Christopher Biggins, Coronation Street’s Ken Morley and actress Leslie Ash will also have their culinary skills examined by hosts John Torode and Gregg Wallace.
In total, 20 famous faces will feature in the new series, with Amanda Burton, Sophie Thompson, Tina Hobley, Alex Ferns, Emma Barton, Kiki Dee, Alison Hammond, Tania Bryer, Russell Grant, Jason Connery, Wayne Sleep, Susannah Constantine and Charley Boorman completing the line-up.
The celebrities will be eliminated during six weeks of challenges before the 2014 champion emerges. They must face restaurant critics, attempt the first Relay Invention Test, cook for past MasterChef victors and feed the ‘Italian cooking mafia’ of Antonio Carluccio, Theo Randall, Giorgio Locatelli and Aldo Zilli.
Past winners have included Jayne Middlemiss, Lisa Faulkner, Liz McClarnon, Phil Vickery and Ade Edmondson.
Ping Coombes won the tenth series of MasterChef with her Malaysian-inspired cooking earlier this month.
