GREGG rates this Week’s Celebs

TV Times - - Food On Tv Special -

stephen Hendry

48, world snooker cham­pion

‘I im­me­di­ately jumped to the con­clu­sion that Stephen would be a re­ally good cook. He was a bril­liant, de­ter­mined snooker player from a very young age, and so he wouldn’t at­tempt Masterchef un­less he was very good.’

an­gel­lica Bell

41, TV pre­sen­ter, (be­low)

‘An­gel­lica puts her­self un­der in­cred­i­ble pres­sure. Her hus­band, broad­caster Michael Un­der­wood, got to the fi­nal three in 2012 and she can’t face not get­ting as far as he did. I think it will af­fect her.’

Jim moir

58, (aka co­me­dian Vic Reeves)

‘Jim lives near me and we of­ten bump into each other at lo­cal restau­rants, so I had a fair idea that he’s a bit of a foodie. He un­der­stands flavour, but has the fi­nesse of a sea­side don­key! How­ever, you can teach pre­sen­ta­tion – but not palate…’

Ju­lia somerville

70, news­reader, (above right)

‘Ju­lia does live TV, but she was a lot more ner­vous than I ex­pected her to be – it just shows you that some peo­ple cope bet­ter on Masterchef than oth­ers.’

Henri le­conte

54, French ten­nis cham­pion

‘Now, Henri is a cook! It’s in his veins. How­ever, he’s a tad too flam­boy­ant and not the best time­keeper. our Henri is a great deal of fun, but he needs to be a lit­tle more fo­cused.’
