Dame Mary Berry will have a special guest appearance celebrity master chef in September during the semi-final phase of the cooking competition.
She will be featured in an episode airing Thursday September 8 in which the remaining contestants will recreate one of Dame Mary’s “most popular and delicious signature classic recipes”.
They’ll have to “master unknown ingredients and techniques” to hopefully impress John Torode and Gregg Wallace.
“You have to remember, though, that I have eyes in the back of my mind. You may think I’m not watching, but I will…”
Celebrities participating in this week’s program include Strictly Come Dancing pro Katya JonesActor Adam Pearson, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Kitty Scott-Claus, radio and television presenter Lisa Snowdon and soap star Ryan Thomas.
Speaking of attending the show, Jones said: “I’ve been a professional dancer for 30 years, I’ve been a teacher and I’m always in control of the situation.
“I’ve been learning my craft for so long that I thought being on the other side, being the beginner, being the amateur and being judged for something so out of my comfort zone would make me a better person.
“I’m learning a new life skill, meeting new people, what’s better than that? Everything while eating!”.
British actor and disability rights activist Pearson, 37, who suffers from neurofibromatosis, said: “I wanted to do it celebrity master chef to learn a new skill. I come here with absolutely zero cooking skills.
“As someone who has made a career out of going out and telling other disabled people to live their lives, seize the day, carpe diem, at the risk of avoiding hypocrisy, I thought I should do so. Besides, ladies love a chef.”
celebrity master chef begins Tuesday, August 30 at 9 p.m. with broadcast of the September 6, 8, and 9 semi-finals.
