Celebrity MasterChef is back again with 16 new contestants. Who can take the heat in the kitchen and emerge the winner? As always, John Torode and Gregg Wallace will put the would-be chefs through their paces in six challenges over a two-day period which will decide who gets a place in the quarter-finals.

Among the stars taking part are Coronation Street villain Brian Capron, caustic TV presenter Janet Street Porter, comic Katy Brand, Heidi Range of Sugababes fame and Jo Wood, the ex-wife of Rolling Stone Ronnie.

Carla-Maria Lawson, executive producer of the popular hit competition said: "In this series, the contestants' enthusiasm in their pursuit of the MasterChef trophy is palpable, often inspiring and sometimes very, very funny."

But will it be tearful? Because someone always cries. Jo Wood, the owner of a pop-up restaurant in London may well be an early favourite, but I'm sure the winner will be the person we all least expect. Celebrity MasterChef kicks off on BBC1 on Wednesday 31 July at 8pm.
