In the heats, the celebs will start by facing a trio of series of challenges. The first is Under the Cloche where each celeb will be faced with a different surprise ingredient which they must use to create a dish.

They’ll then take on the Street Food Challenge where they’ll be asked to cook a dish not from recipe but from but their instincts about how it is made after tasting it.

Following that is the Dinner Party Dish – something they would cook to impress if someone was coming round to eat – in just one hour.

After the challenges one celeb will be eliminated before the remaining four take on a Knowledge and Skills Test and a challenge from a guest chef.

One more celeb will then be sent home while the top three cooks will have to prepare a faultless two-course meal for John, Gregg and three Celebrity MasterChef champions. The top two cooks of the week’s heat will head into the semi-finals.

The winner will follow in the footsteps of previous winners, Riyadh Khalaf, Greg Rutherford MBE, John Partridge, Angellica Bell, Alexis Conran, Kimberly Wyatt, Sophie Thompson, Ade Edmondson, Emma Kennedy, Phil Vickery, Lisa Faulkner, Jayne Middlemiss, Liz McClarnon, Nadia Sawalha and Matt Dawson.
