It''s heating up in the kitchen once more with a new batch of famous faces, including Paul Chuckle, all hoping that their culinary skills will inspire formidable judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace in 2022.

"I''m adamantly sorry to hear from anyone who is feeling the pain."
"I think he''d continue working on showbusiness when he got sick," Barry said. I know he wouldn''t do it himself. "I''m always saying: "I couldn''t be going into the kitchen and doing all that, it''s like hard work!"
