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."
