Aengus MacGrianna is going on Celebrity Masterchef

And here’s who he’ll be competing against in the first ever Irish version…

AENGUS MACGRIANNA – the man, the legend – is among those who’ll be appearing on Ireland’s first series of Celebrity Masterchef.

The series, which will run for six weeks from July, will see eight Irish celebrities (and we use the word loosely) put through a series of cookery-based challenges until a winner is found.

The complete list is:

  • Writer and comic actor Gary Cooke
  • Writer and broadcaster Maia Dunphy
  • Athlete David Gillick
  • National Lottery presenter (and former Mr World) Kamal Ibrahim
  • Former model, columnist and Ronan’s ex-missus Yvonne Keating
  • RTÉ newcaster Aengus Mac Grianna
  • RTÉ sports presenter Tracy Piggott
  • Irish Times journalist Conor Pope

Want to see them all in their aprons? You’re in luck, son:

There they are, with judges Dylan McGrath and Nick Munier. RTÉ’s head of lifestyle Grainne McAleer said:

I believe it will be very revealing to see certain personalities unfold in new circumstances away from the situations that the Irish public are used to thinking of them in. Viewers will be treated to an array of emotional highs and lows.

We can only wait. But obviously, the biggest draw is going to be seeing Aengus: the man behind the makeup.

Godspeed, Aengus. Godspeed.
