Rival station TV3 have now taken over the rights to the popular series from RTE with a new judging duo, celebrated chefs Robin Gill and Daniel Clifford putting the contestants through their paces.
The full celeb line up promises for an interesting show with well known Dublin models Nadia Forde and Holly Carpenter set to make their kitchen debuts. They are joined by Samantha Mumba who is flying in from LA for the show and fellow songstress, Eurovision winner Niamh Kavanagh will also be testing out her culinary skills alongside Weatherwoman Evelyn Cusack.
Also showcasing their competitive streak will be Olympian Sonia O’Sullivan and former GAA star Oisín McConville. They will be joined by the always popular Simon Delaney who will no doubt bring some fun into the kitchen.
Musician Mundy and human rights campaigner Colm O’Gorman complete the line-up on this year’s series which is expected to be one of the most popular shows on TV3. We cannot wait to tune in and see who will be first to crack under the pressure!
