Celebrity MasterChef viewers were enjoying the entertaining antics of Su Pollard and Bez in the kitchen last night as the new series launched on BBC One.

Competing in the cooking contest on yesterday's episode were Happy Mondays dancer Bez, Hi-de-Hi!'s Su, EastEnders actress Rita Simons, Blue's Duncan James, and comedian Munya Chawawa.

Judges John Torode and Greg Wallace were back to host proceedings and dish out their critiques to the budding celebrity cooks.

Bez attempted his first ever rhubarb crumble, and struggled to say the word "anchovies", opting for "handkerchiefs" instead, and fans were loving it.

"Bez is the gift that keeps on giving even after all these years. What a legend," one fan tweeted.

"Bez on #CelebrityMasterChef is a tv masterpiece," another added.

Fans were also enjoying Su's endearing idiosyncrasies which included talking to herself while cooking her dishes.

The series will run for five weeks before one celebrity will be crowned champion.

Joe Swash, Strictly's Johannes Radebe, Dion Dublin, Michelle Collins, reality TV stars Megan McKenna, Kem Cetinay, and Katie Price are also part of the 20 celebrity contestants taking part this year.

Celebrity MasterChef airs on Mondays at 9pm on BBC One.
