Production for the next series is underway, with insiders saying that what Bez lacked in technical skill he made up for in passion.
A show source said: “When Bez signed up for Celebrity MasterChef no one knew what to expect.
“But he’s probably this year’s funniest signing and he has injected some comedy into proceedings.
“Bez is definitely really into his food and he loves being creative.

“He has the guts to push himself a little bit further than maybe others would dare in the competition.
“Plus he’s an absolute legend to have around the set.
“Bez has certainly been cracking people up.”
Bez isn’t the only one planning on pushing the boat out during this series.
