Maura Higgins will appear on a celebrity cooking show

Maura Higgins is among eight celebrities lined up to take on the second series of Cooking With The Stars tomorrow night on Virgin Media One at 9pm.

Hosted by Emma Willis and Tom Allen, Cooking With The Stars will see eight celebrities paired with a professional chef who will mentor, teach and grow them from avid hobbyists to restaurant chefs.

The eight celebrities who will put on their aprons and head to the kitchen are Love Island star Maura Higgins (mentored by Jack Stein), dancer and TV personality Anton Du Beke (mentored by Rosemary Shrager), Olympian Kelly Holmes (mentored by Ronnie Murray), Josie Gibson of This Morning (mentored by Tony Singh MBE), Chaser Anne Hegerty (mentored by Jean-Christophe Novelli), TV expert Dr Ranj Singh (mentored by Clodagh McKenna), comedian Joe Wilkinson (mentored by Judy Joo) and DJ Woody Cook (mentored by Mike Reid).

Irish Love Island star Maura Higgins will appear in Cooking With The Stars.

Through a series of culinary battles, the celebrities will be trained by their mentor chefs to produce “delicious dishes” that will be judged by the other professionals.

In the first show, the theme is British dishes. The bottom two of each culinary battle will fight for their place, creating a dish without the help of their mentor. The result of this cooking will be decided by a blind tasting judgment of the professional chefs.

Unaware of the food they are tasting, “their biggest supporter could quickly and unwittingly become their worst critic and vote their protege out of the competition.”

Cooking With The Stars airs every Tuesday from 9pm on Virgin Media One and Virgin Media Player
