Claudia Winkleman says: "I’m so happy the Home Cook team are going to be back together, albeit two metres apart. I can’t wait to see what our lovely cooks will whip up for Mary, Angela and Chris.”

Charlotte Moore, Director BBC Content, says : “There is going to be plenty of heat in the Best Home Cook kitchen when we return with a new series full of a wonderful mix of celebrities serving up their favourite dishes."

As with previous series, each episode will consist of three rounds: The Ultimate, set by Mary; The Rustle Up, set by Chris; and The Eliminator, set by Angela.
