MasterChef to get celebrity champion series?

Share article:

"MasterChef" is set to get a celebrity champion series.

The cooking show's judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode are plotting a winners" special as 12 previous conquerers - including Liz McClarnon, Lisa Faulkner and Phil Vickery - go head-to-head against this year's yet-to-be announced champ in the kitchen in order to be crowned the best celebrity chef.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Gregg said: "I'd like to see all the previous winners go head to head. Not amateurs and not pros, but definitely ­celebs, because the celebs" job is to be celebs, not chefs -- they don't make a living in food. That would be a great concept. A champion of champions.

"Most certainly, without a doubt, they bring the comedy factor.

"It's by far the most amusing version of the show. At the start really, because so many of them can't cook and also they are entertainers."

"We'll be the special guests turning up in the back room."

Meanwhile, tonight's (28.09.18) grand final of "MasterChef" will see former "EastEnders" star John Partridge, reality TV star Spencer Matthews and ex-rugby player Martin Bayfield battle it out to win this year's prestigious trophy.

However, it won't be an easy task as they will be forced to cook for five top chefs before attempting to wow Gregg and John with a three-course meal.
