Celebrity MasterChef S5 sees temperatures rise as 20 celebrities, including an athlete, an actor, a TV presenter and a politician’s wife, sauté, season and stir it out to see who will take the 2010 crown. Legendary double Michelin-starred chef Michel Roux Jnr and sous chef Monica Galetti will join Gregg Wallace again for MasterChef: the Professionals (S3), the search for the chef who has the skills, commitment, palette and style to make it one day to a Michelin standard.
