Celebrity Masterchef Christmas Cook-Off | Preview (BBC One)

Deck the halls, stuff the turkey and break out the Christmas fizz as ten of the most memorable celebrities from past series come back to compete in festive-themed Celebrity MasterChef specials hosted by judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode.



In the first special, we welcome back Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse, reality star Joey Essex, former professional football player Neil Ruddock, comedian Judi Love and actor and national treasure Su Pollard to see who can take home the title of Christmas champion and the new Celebrity MasterChef Golden Whisk trophy.




The celebrities face two Christmas-themed tests. The first is an invention test: each contender must create a dish using ingredients found in a seasonal advent calendar. Then they are challenged to cook either their ultimate Christmas dinner using well-known seasonal ingredients or an alternative Christmas meal.




In the second episode, Gemma Collins, Joe Swash, Les Dennis, Mica Paris and the Rev Richard Coles recreate Christmas recipes from around the world.


Celebrity Masterchef Christmas Cook-Offs begin Tuesday 21st December on BBC One.
