Take a look at the first photo of Britain’s newest televised competition.
The brainchild of media mogul Simon Cowell, Food Glorious Food is The X Factor meets The Great British Bake Off. The series will follow an extensive and nationwide search for Britain’s best-loved recipe, celebrating family recipes and home cooking along the way.
The lucky winner of the culinary competition will win £20,000 and have their dish sold in Marks & Spencer’s stores across the country.
Carol Vorderman will be hosting the new show alongside four judges including restaurant critic and sauce aficionado Loyd Grossman and cookery book writer and son of Camilla, Tom Parker Bowles. Former MasterChef contestant and beehive-clad baker Stacie Stewart and Vice Chairwoman of the WI Anne Harrison are also on the judging panel.
Ellie is an entertainment, TV and film journalist writing news and (hopefully incredibly witty) comment for RadioTimes.com. She loves light-hearted dramas and glossy US series - and is more than a little bit obsessed with Downton Abbey. Foodie, sun-seeker and aspiring novelist in her own time. Likes the fact that her name rhymes with telly.
