Who are the Celebrity MasterChef semi-final contestants?

CELEBRITY MasterChef is now in its semi-final stage.

Twenty famous faces have now been whittled down to just eight – but only one can be crowned winner.

Who are the Celebrity MasterChef semi-final contestants?

As usual, Gregg Wallace and John Torode are in charge and judging the celebrities on their talents.

The full Celebrity MasterChef line-up included a healthy dose of media personalities, but slowly one-by-one several of them have been booted off the show.

No there are just eight celebrities left who are hoping to scoop the winning crown.

Su Pollard

MasterChef bosses described actress Su – quite rightly as a "national treasure".

The 71-year-old star became a household name in 1980 after she was cast as chalet maid Peggy Ollerenshaw in Hi-de-Hi!

She was one of the first contestants to secure her place in the semi-final, following the Week 1 challenge.

Melanie Sykes

Glamour girl Mel has literally hosted cooking shows including Humble Pie, with chef Marco Pierre White, and Let’s Do Lunch with Gino D’Acampo.

The 50-year-old presenter reached the semi-final during Week 2 of the competition, on August 18, 2021.

Megan McKenna

We know her McDonald's order ("extra gherkins, no bun") thanks to her sweary social media posts, but viewers were interested to see what Megan makes of fine dining.

Given her track record in smashing reality TV – X Factor: Celebrity, Towie and co – we wouldn't bet against the 28-year-old triumphing once again.

And she appears to be well on her way: Megan is one of Masterchef's semi-finalist.

Dion Dublin

Ex-footballer Dion Dublin is best known these days not just for his sporting prowess but for hosting Homes Under The Hammer.

Can the 51-year-old add cookery and 'Masterchef champion' alongside goal-scoring and property on his ever-growing CV?

Kadeena Cox

Paralympian Kadeena Cox is a gold-winning paralympian but also an absolute veteran of celebrity reality shows.

She has appeared on Celebrity Bake Off, Celebrity Mastermind (specialist subject: Arsenal) and even Celebrity Robot Wars, with a killing machine named after herself that destroyed allcomers.

Will she manage to do the same -metaphorically – on Masterchef?

Kem Cetinay

Love Island isn't famed for its cuisine, unless you count the efforts of sandwich man Joe Garratt, but Kem is on a mission to change all that.

The 24-year-old reality star has made a fortune from the show and all the jobs it has brought him and now literally owns a restaurant.

Joe Swash

Joe Swash – who is engaged to Loose Women panellist Stacey Solomon – is riding high after winning the 2020 series of Dancing On Ice.

But now the 39-year-old is looking to do for cuisine what he did for making gliding around a rink look easy.


Happy Mondays legend Bez has shocked viewers with his culinary skills.

The 56-year-old star – whose real name is Mark Berry – is certain to bring comedy, and perhaps a few surprises, to the hit show.

Throughout the competition, Bez has shown his stills for ingredients but has struggled to make his food look attractive.

He also stirred pasta with a rolling pin while in a hurry to produce carbonara, but it still tasted divine.

When is Celebrity Masterchef 2021 final?

The semi finals will kick off TONIGHT (Wednesday September 8, 2021) at 9pm.

The final takes place the following week, on September 17, 2021.

Fans can also catch up with the show on BBC iPlayer.
