"I know it's going to be a lot of fun hosting with the brilliant Tom Allen so I can't wait to get started."
Tom Allen said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be working with Emma and an amazing team of chefs and celebrities. I have a feeling everyone’s going to be put through their paces but we’re going to have a lot of fun along the way!”
Katie Rawcliife, Head of Entertainment Commissioning at ITV said: "This series is set to combine all the ingredients to deliver great entertainment, cooking inspiration, a lively competition and fantastic hosts in Emma Willis and Tom Allen.
"The past year has seen the nation developing their home cooking skills more than ever and now we'll get to see how well our celebrity line up can cook with the guiding hand of expert mentors."
Who are the judges?
Each celeb on the show will be trained by a professional chef partner.
The mentor chefs will then judge the dishes of the other celebrity cooks.
The chefs taking part in the series are:
- British chef and TV presenter Rosemary Shrager
- Food writer and restaurant owner Nisha Katona
- Culinary expert and This Morning chef Joseph Denison Carey
- Michelin starred chef and author Mark Sargeant
- Chef director Jack Stein
- Korean food expert and TV chef Judy Joo
- Chef and business owner Tristan Welch
- Italian chef and restaurateur Francesco Mazzei
In a twist for the celebs, the bottom two celeb cooks in each episode will have to prepare their own meal without help from their mentor.
Each of the meals will be tasted blind by each of the mentor chefs – so each of the chefs could be unknowingly be critiquing their own protege.
