Move over Celebrity MasterChef – ITV is trying its hand at a new celebrity cooking show.
Emma Willis and Tom Allen will host Cooking With The Stars which will feature eight celebrities, each paired with an accomplished chef who will mentor, teach and take them from passionate amateur to restaurant level chefs.
The mentors will then become judges, rating the other celebrity contestants, with the bottom two at risk of leaving the competition.
This eliminator round will be decided by a blind testing from the chefs, in which they may unknowingly turn on their mentee.
Cooking With The Stars will air this summer but ITV did not reveal which celebrities and chefs will be taking part when announcing the show.
Comedian Allen, a host of Great British Bake Off spin-off An Extra Slice, 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 Rawcliffe, 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.”
