itv1_logoMarco Pierre White is back with TV’s toughest celebrity cooking challenge yet as twelve celebrities attempt hold their own in the kitchen under extreme pressure. But will they meet the demands of the hard-to-please restaurant diners?

“I’m the ringmaster and I will crack the whip but they will have to do everything themselves,” growls Marco. “They really are in charge of their own destiny.”

Each week, three stars lock horns in a culinary showdown, with only two going through to the next round.

Heat 1:

Kelvin Macenzie, Donna Air and Tupele Dorgu – 16th April 2010

Heat 2:

Elen Rivas, Ruth Langsford and Mark Watson – 23rd April 2010

Heat 3:

Nancy Dell’Ollio, Debra Stephenson and Jason Byrne – 30th April 2010

Heat 4:

Russell Grant, Carol Smilie and Alex Fearns – 7th May 2010

There will be four weeks of heats, two semi-finals followed by a nail-biting final as Marco narrows the field in the hunt for Britain’s top amateur celebrity chef.

Which celebs will survive the gut-busting task of designing and cooking their own menu for 25 diners?

On the evening itself the celebrities dish out the food and the diners dish out their scores. If the celebrities get into trouble they can ask for Marco’s help, but it comes at a price. For every minute he spends with them there’s a point deducted from their final score.
