Running across six weeks, we will see the 16 celebrities battle it out over two days to secure a place in the final. So, who are the lucky 16 celebrities who have nothing better to do at the moment. Les Denis, Sugababes Heidi Range and our very own former Boyzone member Shane Lynch will be amongst the famous faces to take part.

And it wouldn't be a reality show without a Corrie star or three, with John Thomson, Denise Black and Brian Capron all signing up for the showAlso joining the 16 - prepare to say 'Whooo?' a lot - will be Katy Brand, Miranda Krestovnikoff, Phillips Idowu, Matthew Hoggard, Joe Calzaghe, Jo Wood, Speech Debelle and Ade Edmonson.

Executive producer Carla Maria Lawson said about the upcoming series 'The return of Celebrity MasterChef to this BBC One peak time slot sees thrills and spills and some extraordinary cooking from our lineup of well-known faces. In this series, the contestants' enthusiasm in their pursuit of the MasterChef trophy is palpable, often inspiring and sometimes very, very funny.'

This summer will also see RTE air a Irish Celebrity Masterchef, which we will be tuning into purely for Aengus MacGrianna.
