Cooking With The Stars

Episode 4

Hosted by Emma Willis and Tom Allen, Cooking With The Stars continues. In the fourth show of the series the remaining five celebrities take on the food of France - a cuisine that's historically been held in high esteem as the epitome of fine dining.

The evening’s menu will see French classics Duck a l'Orange and Coq au Vin making an appearance. Elsewhere, others have opted to showcase their cooking skills with fish with dishes including Sole Meunieure and Bourride.

Series overview

Hosted by Emma Willis and Tom Allen brand new series Cooking With The Stars, with co-funding by Marks & Spencer, will see eight celebrities, each paired with a professional chef who will mentor, teach and take them from passionate amateur to restaurant level chefs.

Airing this Summer on ITV and the ITV Hub, the eight celebrities who will be putting on their aprons and heading to the kitchen are comedian and actor Griff Rhys-Jones, Strictly’s head judge Shirley Ballas, DJ and songwriter Naughty Boy, performer and presenter Denise Van Outen, actress Catherine Tyldesley, McFly’s Harry Judd, comedian and actor Johnny Vegas and TV presenter AJ Odudu.

Across a series of exciting cooking battles, the celebrities will be trained by their mentor chefs to produce delicious dishes that will be judged by the remaining professionals. The bottom two will then have to fight for their place in the competition, creating a dish without any help from their mentor. The result of this eliminator will be decided by a blind tasting judgement from the professional chefs. Unaware of whose food they are tasting, the greatest supporter could swiftly and unwittingly become the worst critic and vote for their protege to leave the competition.

The professional chefs who are taking on the challenge are British chef and TV presenter Rosemary Shrager, food writer and restaurant owner Nisha Katona, culinary expert and regular chef on This Morning Joseph Denison Carey, renowned chef and business owner Ronnie Murray, chef director Jack Stein, Korean chef and restauranteur Judy Joo, renowned chef and business owner Tristan Welch and Italian chef and restaurateur Francesco Mazzei.

Each week the celebrities will be cooking up a storm in a bid to outdo their rivals but who will come out top? Time will tell who has got the skills of a pro chef and who’s getting the chop.

Cooking With The Stars is a partnership between Marks & Spencer, ITV and South Shore.
