Jason Watkins, Peter Andre and Joanna Page are to appear in the new series of ‘Cooking with the Stars’.
The ‘Nativity’ star, 60, the ‘Mysterious Girl’ hitmaker, 50, and the ‘Gavin and Stacey’ actress, 46, have joined the third season of the ITV1 cookery programme, which matches up celebrities with professional chefs to whip up some culinary delights.
They will compete alongside other names like boxer Chris Eubank, 56, ex ‘Love Island’ star Indiyah Polack, 23, and ‘Corrie’ star Samia Longchambon, 40, who will be partnered up with Jack Stein, Ellis Barrie and Jean-Christophe Novelli.
Tony Singh will be paired up with Steps icon Claire Richards, 45, and Shelina Permalloo will teach Busted drummer Matt Willis, the husband of Emma Willis, who co-hosts the show with comic Tom Allen.
The 47-year-old television presenter said: “Filming ‘Cooking With the Stars’ is always a highlight for me as not only do Tom and I have lots of fun but we also get to try some phenomenal food.
“We have a great cast this season, who will no doubt be feeling the pressure as they head into the kitchen. We’ve seen blood, sweat and tears on the previous series and I’m sure this series will be no exception!”
The 39-year-old comedian said: “A whole lot of great food, celebs reaching boiling point plus Emma Willis and me holding court – sounds like my dream party.”
“I am so excited to be bringing back to your screens the glitziest competitive cooking show in the world!”
Previous editions of the show have been won by ’This Morning’ star Dr Ranj and McFly drummer Harry Judd.
