My food test fear

Daily Star Sunday - - RESULT! -

LISA Maxwell turned down an ear­lier chance to do Celebrity MasterChef be­cause she was too scared.

Bosses of the cook­ery show came call­ing when she played DI Sam Nixon on The Bill.

Lisa, 54, re­vealed: “I ac­tu­ally laughed when I heard I’d been asked.

“I thought they must have made a mis­take. I said no, fear­ing I’d make my­self look re­ally silly.”

But things have moved on and Lisa, who has daugh­ter Beau with hus­band Paul, said her home life had played a big part in her say­ing yes this time around.

She said: “I’m in my 50s now and I need to be able to cook a fam­ily meal with­out stress­ing ev­ery­body out.”

Lisa is in the fourth and fi­nal week of heats along­side AJ Pritchard, Jay Blades, Stella Parton and Clara Amfo.
