It’s time for twenty more celebs to cook up a storm, as Celebrity MasterChef is set to return. With six weeks of intense competitions ahead of them, who will be bringing home the bacon this series?

Set to air its nineteenth series, the cooking show sees celebs sweat it out over crème brulees as judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace watch on.

The perfect after dinner watch, it will have audiences glued to their screens this summer as singers, comedians and even a Marchioness try not to boil over - but when is Celebrity MasterChef hitting screens this year and who exactly is part of the line-up?

When does Celebrity MasterChef 2024 start?

While it's been confirmed by the BBC that Celebrity MasterChef will return to our screens this summer, an exact air date has not been announced yet.

But, with last year's series of Celebrity MasterChef beginning in early August, we predict that fans won’t have to wait long to see 2024's stars compete.

With four weeks of heats to test their culinary skills, there is plenty to look forward to when the show finally arrives on iPlayer and BBC One.

Celebs will also have to undergo the notorious Under The Cloche challenge, as they create a dish from scratch to show off what they’ve learnt.

If that weren’t intense enough, they will also be stepping inside professional kitchens and serving up their ultimate in Food Truck dish in later episodes.

The BBC have even teased about what is in store for those who make it to the final weeks, with a brand new pizza round and an ‘opulent dining’ task onboard a British Pullman Train.
