What is the Celebrity MasterChef prize?

There isn’t an official prize for Celebrity MasterChef.

As it’s such an honour to be on the show, the reward is the taking part.

Given how many viewers tune into the series, it’s considered a huge achievement to win.

And whoever does win always enjoys a huge career boost afterwards – much like The Great British Bake Off.

Over in the States, if you win MasterChef US, there’s a prize of $250,000.

But over here, it’s the taking part that counts.

The 2020 series kicks off on Wednesday July 1.

If you miss the launch episode, you’ll be able to catch up on BBC iPlayer.

Celebrity MasterChef is on BBC One, Wednesdays at 9pm.
