Celebrity Masterchef 2019: EastEnders star joins line-up as contestants revealed

Celebrity Masterchef has revealed its line-up for the 2019 edition of the reality cooking show which will air later this year.

Cooking up a storm in the Masterchef kitchen will be a wide range of stars from the world of sport, soaps and reality TV.

EastEnders icon Adam Woodyatt who plays Ian Beale will join boxing promoter Kellie Maloney and Olympian Greg Rutherford as reported by The Mirror. 

Adam’s character, Ian, runs a number of eateries in Albert Square including Kathy’s Cafe and Beale’s Plaice chippy.

Could his on-screen persona’s cooking skills have rubbed off on him over the years?

Adrian Edmonson, who will be joining the BBC soap later this year as Jean Slater’s (Gillian Wright) love interest, won Celebrity Masterchef in 2013.

Will Adam make it another win for Albert Square residents?

Adam will be joined by Geordie Shore star Vicky Pattison and heavyweight boxing champion Dillian Whyte.

Former professional footballer Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock who recently starred alongside Harry Redknapp in Harry’s Heroes: The Full English, will also join the line-up.

Dom Parker, who found fame on Gogglebox alongside his wife Steph and both quit the Channel 4 series in 2016, joins the other celebrities.

Viewers watched as Made In Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews, former rugby player Martin Bayfield and ex-EastEnders star John Partridge competed in the final of Celebrity Masterchef 2018.

John was eventually crowned the winner in a highly competitive final.

Speaking to Digital Spy, he said: “It’s just one of the best experiences in my life.

“I thought it was going to be all about cooking and food, and it ended up being so much more than that.”

“It just feels really good, he continued.”

After he won, the champion paid a touching tribute to his mum who sadly passed away a year before the competition.

He tweeted: “My mum’s passing to winning @MasterChefUK was exactly one year to the day. 

“I definitely had an angel on my shoulder for that final cook! The whole experience was healing for me. 

“Cooking the food from my past has helped me to live in the present.. what a gift.”

Celebrity Masterchef returns to BBC One later this year
