Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh and JLS's JB GIll will be taking part in the new series of Celebrity MasterChef, it has been announced.

The former reality TV star, who is married to rapper Professor Green, will join the line up due to appear on the hugely popular cooking show later this year.

JLS star JB GIll, who married his childhood sweetheart just weeks ago, is also set to show off his culinary skills in front of notoriously tough judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode.

Reveal astrologer Russell Grant, who won himself an army of fans after taking part in Strictly Come Dancing in 2011, will also take part.

The 20 celebrities hoping to follow in the footsteps of last year's winner Ade Edmondson also include I'm A Celebrity... champ Christopher Biggins, Holby City actress Tina Hobley, dancer Wayne Sleep, model Jodie Kidd and fashion journalist Susannah Constantine.

Former EastEnders actor Todd Carty will also try to wow the judges... So let's hope he provides as much comic value as he did on Dancing On Ice!

The line-up for Celebrity MasterChef 2014


This year will see 13 programmes air over six weeks. The first four heat weeks will concentrate on whittling down the celebrities, testing their abilities until only the best eight go through to the fifth and semi-final week. Eek!

Past Celebrity MasterChef champions include 2010 winner Lisa Faulkner, who is now dating judge John Torode, 2011's Phil Vickery and 2012's Emma Kennedy.

In this year's 90-minute final, the three best celebrities have to cook for Antonio Carluccio, Aldo Zilli, Theo Randall and Giorgio Locatelli. They then must cook their best three-course meal for John and Gregg.

Rather them than us!
