Last month, Masterchef's Gregg Wallace announced he was standing down from the show after eight years.

Eat Well For Less sees Gregg Wallace and award-winning greengrocer Chris Bavin help families across the UK save money, sort food facts from food fiction and eat well for less.

Gregg confirmed: “I’ve loved working on the series with Chris but now it’s time to hand over the knife and fork to someone else to continue helping people eat well.”

Now, reports suggest that Kimberley Walsh and Ashley Banjo are among the names being considered to replace Gregg on the BBC One series.

An insider told The Sun: “The BBC and makers of Eat Well For Less have chosen Kimberley and Ashley as their final two. Kimberley seems like the perfect fit, even though her background is mainly music. She has two children so has a large mummy following, plus she’s a natural on screen and is really easy-going...

“They think she would be a great addition to the prime-time show, which would see her presenting alongside host Chris Bavin.” Ashley is also in consideration for the role. Gregg and Chris’ rapport worked really well and some people at the Beeb think Ashley would be a bitter fit for that dynamic. Plus, Ashley has more than proved his worth as a presenter after standing in for Simon Cowell on Britain’s Got Talent. The BBC would love to have a chance to work with him and possibly move him away from ITV. Kimberley is the one people have their money on in the office, however.”
