The celebrity pressure is real and once the competition starts to heat up everyone wants win, but I’m hoping there won’t be as much blood as there was last series.” Tom Allen said: “The last series was so exciting. Emma Willis and I polished our frying pans in preparation – we’re having so much fun working together.

“Celebs are trained by some of the best chefs in the industry and as time goes on it’s always strained to see if they’ll improve their cooking enough each week to live up to the high standards of the judges.”
