Celebrity MasterChef viewers cringe over Gregg Wallace ‘flirting’ with Rachel Stevens

Despite neglecting to bake her cottage pie, the S Club 7 star avoided the chop


Twitter erupted in a collective cringe last night as Gregg Wallace was seen to be “flirting” with former S Club 7 member Rachel Stevens on Celebrity Masterchef.


The presenter was a little less focused on the popstar’s cooking than he should have been, calling her “lovely and sweet”. It left a bad taste in the mouths of many viewers.

The popstar appeared alongside Debbie McGee, Rebecca Adlington, DJ Dev Griffin and actor Tyger Drew-Honey.

Amazingly, she managed to swerve the boot despite serving up a cottage pie without baking it.

Instead, youngster Drew-Honey became the second celeb to exit the series after snooker star Stephen Hendry was eliminated last week.


Celebrity Masterchef airs at 8pm on Wednesdays on BBC1
