Wynne Evans Wins Celebrity MasterChef UK
After facing off the talents of 19 other celebrities, BBC Wales presenter Wynne Evans triumphed at the end of six nail-biting weeks, which culminated in an intense cook-off against his fellow finalists, actor Amy Walsh and reality star Luca Bish. Wynne was awarded the revered Celebrity MasterChef UK trophy by judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode.
Reacting to his win, Wynne said: “This is a brilliant feeling. The kids will love this, they’ll be like ‘Dad! I can’t believe you did it when all you cook for us is beans on toast!’ The experience has totally changed my life. It has just been beautiful and I can’t thank Gregg and John and everybody here at MasterChef enough.
“When you start to believe in yourself, that’s when good things start to happen. I don’t know how a MasterChef winner celebrates but I know how a bloke from Carmarthen celebrates!”
Gregg Wallace said: “Wynne gives us theatre. I have never seen a celebrity like him ever before and I’m not sure we ever will again.” While John Torode added: “Every single dish tells a story. His food, it’s exciting, it’s ambitious, and it’s got a little bit of artistic flare. He’s a proud Welshman with a big heart.”
