Hornchurch spinner Monty Panesar will be swapping his beloved cricket pitch for the kitchen as he appears on Celebrity Master Chef this evening.
The former England International cricket star has dealt with all kinds of pressure when it comes to important matches, but the show will determine whether the 36-year-old can deal with the pressure of whipping up a meal.
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 in this summer’s BBC One hit series.
The show is due to be on air this evening and tomorrow evening at 8pm and the bowler will be hoping for more success after sealing the league title with his Harrow Lodge-based cricket club to complete a treble winning season.
“Celebrity Master Chef is on the 6th and 7th, I hope everyone watches it and tell me what they think of my cooking,” Panesar said.
“It will be nice to see if I’ve turned out to be a good cook or not, we’ll have to wait and see.”
He will then return to cricket action on Saturday as Hornchurch make the trip to Billericay for their first match of the Shepherd Neame Essex League Premier Division season.
