Why is Celebrity Masterchef not on BBC One, when will it be back and who will be competing?


Celebrity MasterChef has been switched to allow for other TV shows on BBC One but it will return to our screen’s very soon.

Now in its 16th series, the popular programme sees some personalities revel in their passion for food whilst others flatter to deceive when the heat is on, literally.

Hosted by Gregg Wallace and John Torode, with the latter taking a particular interest in events, the duo are once again judging the culinary offerings – good, bad and indifferent – being served in front of them, in the kitchen.

The previous winner of Celebrity MasterChef was the Irish broadcaster and internet personality Riyadh Khalaf.

He was rumoured to have entered into discussions with production companies about furthering his food career since his success on the show.

Matt Dawson, Greg Rutherford, Emma Kennedy and Angellica Bell are amongst other previous winners of the contest.

Why is Celebrity Masterchef not on BBC One and when is it back?

The show has been moved due to scheduling requirements.
