Celebrity MasterChef 2018 lineup of 20 announced


It’s that time again, where celebrities don their aprons and sweat it out in the kitchen for Celebrity MasterChef 2018.

But who’s in it? Well, this year’s famous contestants have finally been announced, and they are an interesting bunch of names to say the least.

Some of the names are certainly an eclectic bunch, and include the sister of legendary US singer Dolly Parton, Stella.

TOWIE’s Gemma Collins is also appearing – despite the BBC previously being coy that she’d allegedly been offered a place as ‘compensation’ after falling down a trapdoor at the BBC Teen Awards.


Keith Allen (the actor dad to singer Lily and Game of Thrones star Alfie) is also set to feature, as is ex-The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge.

Cricketer Monty Panesar and Union J singer Josh Cuthbert are also part of the all-star setup, as every battles one another to impress regular judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode.

Former EastEnders actor and recent Celebrity Big Brother housemate John Partridge will appear in the famous kitchen, alongside former Holby City actor Chizzy Akudolu, Radio 1’s Clara Amfo, and actress/presenter Lisa Maxwell.

There are 20 celebs that make up the full roster for the 2018 series, with other names such as Strictly’s AJ Pritchard and Made In Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews.
