Celebrity MasterChef starts tonight and this is the full line up

Tom from The Apprentice will be cooking

Gregg Wallace and John Torrode are back with a bunch of B-List celebs who will inevitably fail at getting their fondants to rise – it’s Celebrity MasterChef time.

The lineup of 20 celebrities this year includes reality stars, Olympians and Baga Chipz. Yes one of the finalists of Drag Race UK will be joining Gregg and John in the kitchen and cooking in drag. I cannot wait.

Celebrity MasterChef starts tonight on BBC One at 9pm and the celebs will be split up into four groups of five competing in a number of heats before reaching the semi-finals and then the grand finale.

The series was filmed before lockdown and will feature the usual invention test, cooking under a professional chef and catering for up to 100 people.

These are all the celebrities taking part in Celebrity MasterChef 2020:

For those who don’t know Myles is part of the band Rak-Su and went out with Gabby Allen from Love Island.

Easily one of the fittest contestants on this year’s MasterChef. Gethin is a presenter who worked on Blue Peter and a number of other shows.
