Names include Kerry Katona, Kim Woodburn, Shaun Ryder and Zeze Millz.
The new eight-part series will be hosted by Melvin Odoom and sees ten self-proclaimed ‘horrendous’ home cooks take on a cookery competition series like no other.
They’ll need to master crucial cookery techniques and gain confidence if they’re to be crowned ‘Best in Class’ at the end of the series. But if they don’t impress, they’ll get an F for Fail and leave the school for good.
The celebrities signing up for the crash course are showbiz icon Kerry Katona, Love Island’s Toby Aromolaran, former pro footballer and content creator Stevo the Madman, presenter and influencer Sam Thompson, Made In Chelsea’s Maeva D’Ascanio, presenter Zeze Millz, First Dates star Laura Tott, musician Shaun Ryder, comedian Paul Chowdhry and original cleaning queen Kim Woodburn.
Celebrity Cooking School tests whether any of the celeb cooks can be turned around when schooled by one of the best in the culinary business.
All that most of the celebs will know about food to start with is how to order it, but working solo and matched in pairs, an intensive cookery crash course will have them sweating it out in the kitchen, as they hilariously tackle a series of complex cooking challenges well beyond their ability – leading to chaos in the kitchen.
The celebs will be trained and judged by Michelin star chef, Giorgio Locatelli who believes he can teach anyone how to cook. He won’t be alone in his mission, as he’s aided by Michelin trained chef and TikTok Star, Poppy O’Toole. Locatelli won’t just be deciding who stays and who goes, along with Poppy, he’ll be teaching the stars how to create and present world-class recipes.
But as the celebs try their best to impress their teacher, it’s not long before he realises his work is well and truly cut out with these celeb cooks.
Celebrity Cooking School will air later this year on E4
