Sam Quek, John Barnes among star-studded line-up on Celebrity Masterchef


John Barnes, Sam Quek, Sir Matthew Pinsent and Judy Murray are among the star names who will take part in the upcoming series of Celebrity MasterChef.

Judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace will preside over another series of the cooking show.

The five-week long test of their culinary skills was filmed before the coronavirus pandemic swept the globe.

Barnes, who was a leading light for England and Liverpool, will hope he has what it takes to bring home the trophy.

He certainly wasn’t alien to success during his career, but the same can be said for some of his competitors.

Quek is an Olympic gold medalist after helping the Great Britain hockey team win the top prize at Rio de Janerio in 2016.


Pinsent is another British Olympian who claimed gold.

The former rower did so on four occasions, three of which were alongside Steve Redgrave.

Murray has been a huge part of her son’s success and continues to be an influential figure in tennis.

The sporting quartet will also go up against actor Phil Daniels, blind travel presenter Amar Latif, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Baga Chipz and Rak-Su singer Myles Stephenson.

Carla-Maria Lawson, commissioning editor for the BBC, said: “The 20 celebrities who’ve taken up the MasterChef challenge this year are an exciting, ambitious and brave bunch.
