Here’s everything we know about Celebrity MasterChef 2021, including the full line-up, the release date and the judges.
It’s always good fun when celebrities take part in our favourite reality series. Most recently, Hollywood star James McAvoy made a shock appearance in the Great British Bake Off tent. And last year, Line Of Duty fans were thrilled to see the show’s cast take part in Gogglebox.
