Cooking TV shows are the best kind of TV shows (although, we would say that, wouldn’t we?).

We love MasterChef (original, The Professionals and Celebrity), we love Bake Off and we love Great British Menu. Plus, so, so, so many more.

So, when we heard that ITV was launching a new cooking show called Cooking With The Stars, we jumped for joy.

Hosted by Emma Willis and Tom Allen, the brand-new series, Cooking With The Stars, with co-funding by Marks & Spencer, will see eight celebrities paired with professional chefs, who will mentor, teach and take them from passionate amateur to restaurant level chef.

Each week, the pairs will compete to outdo one another in the kitchen, as no one wants to get the chop.

We guess you want to know about the line-up now, right? You’re only human after all…

The eight celebrities are comedian and actor Griff Rhys-Jones, Strictly’s head judge Shirley Ballas, DJ and songwriter Naughty Boy, performer and presenter Denise Van Outen, actress Catherine Tyldesley, McFly’s Harry Judd, comedian and actor Johnny Vegas and TV presenter AJ Odudu.
