Irish broadcaster and internet personality Riyadh Khalaf won Celebrity Masterchef in 2020.

Khalaf won over Gregg Wallace and John Torode with his impressive range of dishes largely inspired by his Iraqi roots.

He’s hoping to expand his career in cooking and told RadioTimes.com that he was in talks with production companies after his win.

“I would love to do more food-related stuff on TV – something that’s dangerous and breaking boundaries and a little bit out there. I’ve got a couple of ideas I have down on paper and I’ve been chatting to production companies and developing them. Maybe a cook book and a new podcast coming out next year!”

Wallace said: “Riyadh has always been flamboyant, he’s always shown creativity and he’s always been passionate. I think Riyadh’s cooking came of age today.”

Torode added: “You look at those three dishes and I thought they were restaurant quality. Some people just get better, their food finer but more importantly more and more delicious. A deserved winner.”
