Celebrity MasterChef will kick off with four heat weeks, aimed at testing the celebrities' skills in the kitchen. Those who come out on top will make it towards the end of the competition, with only the most talented cooks making it to the final.

The first heat will have five new celebrities take on their first daunting task: the Under the Cloche challenge, in which they must create a dish from scratch that shows off what they can do.

After the heats, the remaining eight celebrities will face the semi-final and final week challenges.

Katie Attwood, MasterChef series editor, said: "Celebrity MasterChef fans are in for a treat this summer – with a top line-up of celebrities and the ever-thrilling John and Gregg on judging duty.

"These stars will need to pull out all the stops this year as we're really testing their mettle. It's one you won't want to miss!"

Celebrity MasterChef season 19 comes to BBC One this summer.
