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 will be back in 2021!
Here's everything we know so far about Celebrity MasterChef 2021 - including the line-up. And with Katie Price competing this year, we get the feeling this series will be an absolute banger.

Alas, no trailer yet, but here's last year's to get you all riled up:
Celebrity MasterChef 2021 presenters and judges
Unless we hear otherwise, we're assuming that John Torode and Gregg Wallace will return to judge Celebrity MasterChef 2021. John and Gregg have fronted the show since it began in 2006, and it just wouldn't be the same without them. We'd also love to see MasterChef royalty, Monica Galetti, make an appearance too.
What is the Celebrity MasterChef 2021 format?
After four weeks of heats, the semi-final and final week will see the celebrities tasked with cooking for 100 people for a special anniversary lunch, a takeaway themed Invention Test, and cooking for celebrity chefs.
