Katie Price wows on MasterChef! Star impresses judge John Torode with crab noodles – after quipping the problem with the show is ‘you’re not allowed to use tinned food’

  • Katie Price, 43, looks baffled when given a crab and told to make dish out of it
  • Mother-of-five jokes problem with show is ‘you’re not allowed to use tinned stuff’
  • Impresses judge John Torode with her crab noodles with garlic and chilli

Katie Price shocked herself and judge John Torode when she rustled up a praise-worthy crab noodles dish on Celebrity MasterChef.

In tonight’s episode of the BBC One cookery show, which airs at 9pm, the former glamour model, 43, looks baffled when she’s given a crab and told to make a dish out of it.

‘The trouble with this show is you’re not allowed to use tinned stuff,’ she jokes.

However, after hammering the shell in with a mallet – a process she compares to ‘an autopsy’ – the mother-of-five impresses judge John Torode with her crab noodles with garlic and chilli.

Other celebrities competing in the kitchen include presenter Joe Swash, ex footballer Dion Dublin, actor Melissa Johns and furniture expert Will Kirk – but Katie soon realises she has little to worry about. 

Highlighting his lack of expertise, Joe admits: ‘I give my kids enough nourishment to keep them alive. But they love going for dinner at other people’s houses.’

Elsewhere, the Repair Shop’s Will fails to impress with the raw chicken he serves the judges.

And it’s not all plain sailing for Katie either, who has a disastrous second round when her dumplings don’t cook through – on two separate occasions.

‘They are so shocking I’m not going to put them on the plate,’ she says. ‘It’s not like I didn’t put the effort in, I really did put in the effort, right til the last minute.’

Meanwhile, after Katie opts to make a toad in the hole as part of the third round, where the celebrities are asked to create a dish they’d make at a dinner party, she jokes: ‘It’s messy – story of my life.’

Overall, Katie says she enjoyed the experience.

‘I know it’s a competition but I’ve actually enjoyed it,’ she enthuses. ‘I would cook more if I knew what I was doing.’ 

Celebrity MasterChef, Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, BBC One, 9pm.
