Rylan-Clark Neal To Present ‘Ready Steady Cook’ Reboot | TV News
Rylan Clark-Neal is set to host a reboot of Ready Steady Cook.
The daytime cooking show originally ran for 21 series and was hosted by Fern Britton from 1994 until 2000, and by Ainsley Harriott, who appeared in over 1000 episodes before the show was axed in 2010.
BBC One’s new version will tackle issues such as cooking on budget, healthy eating and managing food waste.
Clark-Neal has previously presented Big Brother’s Bit on the Side and This Morning.
He will also be fronting Supermarket Sweep when it returns to ITV2 on Monday.
“I’m so excited that Ready Steady Cook is finally coming back to our screens”, he said.
“To be asked to host such an amazing show for the BBC is such a privilege”.
“After making the finals of Celebrity MasterChef, I know how tough cooking under pressure can be. I’m sure that the mix of new challenges, fantastic chefs and enthusiastic cooks will be a recipe for success, maybe with the odd disaster!”
Several chefs have signed up to the new series of Ready Steady Cook, including Mike Reid, Romy Gill, Akis Petretzikis, Ellis Barrie and Anna Haugh.
In every episode, chefs will face two different taste tests, each contestant armed with a bag of ingredients bought within a £10 budget.
A second challenge sees their time cut in half, as participants are tasked with creating a dish based on the studio audience’s ingredients cards.
Ready Steady Cook will return some time next year.
