Here at Delish, we sure do love MasterChef. We love regular MasterChef, We love MasterChef: The Professionals, and boy do we love Celebrity MasterChef! John Torode and Gregg Wallace making weird noises when they eat, the questionable dishes that get served up sometimes, and the fact that we're always convinced we could do better (we couldn't) are just some of the reasons we wouldn't miss a single episode of BBC's iconic cooking series.

So, the great news is, Celebrity MasterChef is back!

Here's everything we know so far about Celebrity MasterChef 2022 - including the line-up. And with Chris Eubank competing this year, we get the feeling this series will be an absolute banger.

John Torode and Gregg Wallace will be returning to judge Celebrity MasterChef 2022, the 17th season of the celebrity spin-off. John and Gregg have fronted the show since it began in 2006, and it just wouldn't be the same without them.
