We’re incredibly pleased to be able to finally confirm that Audley will appear on the eleventh series of BBC cult show Celebrity MasterChef this summer. Audley will test his culinary mettle against 19 other celebrities and face the ultimate judgement of John Torode and Gregg Wallace.

Filming has already taken place but we were sworn to secrecy until today. We won’t spoil the excitement by letting on about Audley’s performance so you’ll just have to tune in. But rest assured that Audley will be as fiercely competitive as he was in his 38 incredible fights, most of which he won by knockout.

They say that if you can’t take the heat you should stay out of the kitchen. But we all know Audley’s made of strong stuff and he has fought his way out of tight corners many times. He is used to winning and his famous smile lights up rooms – Audley can even out-smile Gregg Wallace who is equally renowned for his disarming grin.

The date of transmission has yet to be announced...
