RuPaul's Drag Race UK Star In MasterChef Line-Up

Kitty Scott-Claus

The 20 celebrities inducted into this years group of celebrity trainee chefs will include RuPaul's Drag Race UK star Kitty Scott-Claus. The stars will be joined again by judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace, which will also include hilarious ex-footballer Jimmy Bullard, TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher, and former boxing champion Chris Eubank.

Hoping to impress with their culinary skills will also be reality star MoJo, media personality Nancy Dell’Olio and British actress Lesley Joseph – as well as actors Adam Pearson and Clarke Peters.

This year will see the return of challenges Under The Cloche, The Street Food Challenge and Dinner Party Dish in the four-week heat round before the top celebrities face the semi and final week stages.

Post-pandemic, the series will see the finalists face challenges cooking for a large number of people – including a special centenary challenge to mark 100 years of the BBC.

Katie Attwood, MasterChef series editor, said: “Celebrity MasterChef is a firm favourite in the television must-see calendar and this series is as funny, engaging and nail-biting as ever. John and Gregg are in for a treat, as are our viewers.”

Sarah Clay, commissioning editor for the BBC, added: “This line up will absolutely cement Celebrity MasterChef as one of the nation’s most loved cookery programmes, with a lot of laughter alongside fierce competition guaranteed. The level of cooking is fantastic this year and you can really see how much it means to them all.”

Celebrity MasterChef, produced by Shine TV, will return to BBC One this summer.
