Most recently, Mir formed part of ITV’s 2017 General Election team, reporting on the West Midlands seats from Birmingham, and co-presenting Scotland Decides – ITV’s live results programme reporting on the results of the 2015 Scottish independence referendum.
Earlier this month, Mir fronted BBC documentary Partition: Legacy of the Line with Sanjeev Kohli.
She also spent 11 years working at Radio 5 Live, presenting Weekend News, The Midday News and Drive with Peter Allen before moving to Radio 4 where she now fronts Saturday Live with Rev Richard Coles.
Mir has also capitalised on her skills in the kitchen, launching Cracking Curries – a website and YouTube cookery series – with her sister, showing new cooks how to make simple and authentic Pakistani food.
Surely she’ll be a whizz in the MasterChef kitchen?
Celebrity MasterChef airs on Wednesdays at 8pm on BBC1
