Former England international will hope to lift coveted title by being a culinary genius

Hornchurch spinner Monty Panesar may be used to the pressures of international cricket, but the 36-year-old will now have to deal with the stressess of a kitchen.

The former England international will take part in the latest series of Celebrity Masterchef, which will be shown on BBC One over the summer.

Panesar will compete alongside the likes of Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, Strictly Come Dancing professional AJ Pritchard, The Only Way Is Essex legend Gemma Collins and former The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge.

The former Essex, Sussex and Northamptonshire bowler will hope to follow in the footsteps of fellow sports stars and former England rugby union internationals Matt Dawson and Phil Vickery by winning Celebrity Masterchef.

The 36-year-old signed up to compete in this year’s Dancing On Ice, but had to withdraw after fracturing his ankle.

Panesar has signed to play for Hornchurch in the Shepherd Neame Essex League Premier Division this year.

In his opening league match of the season at Shenfield on Saturday, the spinner finished with figures of 1-31 in a match that was abandoned because of rain.
