Matthew Hoggard MBE to Appear on BBC’s Celebrity Masterchef.

Matthew is thrilled to announce that he will be appearing on the hit BBC One series Celebrity Masterchef, later this summer. A keen cook and always up for a new challenge, the cricketer is looking forward to bowling out the competition with his delicious dishes and innovative culinary creations.

The show will air later this year and is set to be another equally exciting series and boasts another fantastic all-star line up. With chef John Torode and food expert Greg Wallace at the helm, as well as a range of nail- biting challenges billed, Matthew is very much looking forward to seeing the culinary battle commence.

16 celebrities will be concocting a wide-range of hopefully delicious, but sometimes terrifying culinary creations including entertainer Les Dennis, actors John Thomson, Denise Black, Brian Capron and actor and musician Ade Edmondson, as well as comedians Katy Brand and Shappi Khorsandi and TV presenter Miranda Krestovnikoff. From the world of sport, triple jumper Phillips Idowu, cricketer Matthew Hoggard MBE and boxer Joe Calzaghe; organic entrepreneur Jo Wood and from the world of music, singer Heidi Range, Mercury award winning rapper Speech Debelle and Boyzone’s Shane Lynch; and writer and broadcaster, Janet Street-Porter.

Everyone at Champions (UK) plc wishes Matthew the very best of luck for the competition.
