STAR SPORTS NEWS: Will Kirk favourite for Celebrity MasterChef

The Repair Shop star Will Kirk has emerged as the early 8/1 favourite to emulate last year’s champion Riyadh Khalaf and win Celebrity MasterChef 2021 with Star Sports.

Kirk will compete against 19 fellow celebrities to impress judges Greg Wallace and John Torode. Among them is model and wife of Rod Stewart, Penny Lancaster, who is next in the betting alongside Melanie Sykes and Strictly Come Dancing’s Johannes Radebe who are all at 10/1.

Kem Cetinay, who could find the heat of the Love Island villa more comfortable than the MasterChef kitchen, can be backed at 12/1. While The Only Way Is Essex star Megan McKenna is 14/1 in her quest for the title this summer.

Footballer turned property expert Dion Dublin is a bigger price at 20/1 and Happy Mondays legend Bez is the outsider of the group at 33/1.

Luke Tarr, Head of PR at Star Sports, said: “With this year’s Celebrity MasterChef line-up revealed it looks a vintage year for the competition and Will Kirk is the 8/1 favourite to turn his hand from furniture restoration to culinary delights.

“There could be some upsets along the way in the competition and with characters like Bez involved at 33/1 anything could happen.”
