Actress Lisa Faulkner was crowned winner of Celebrity MasterChef in 2010.
Faulkner, best known for her role in Holby City, was praised for her "natural touch and fantastic palate" by series judge John Torode.
The actress said: "MasterChef has changed my life - it's opened up a new world to me, I now cook all the time, I cook every day. If I'm stressed I go cook, I try things I've never tried before and I absolutely love it... I've just become obsessed with it."
Judge Gregg Wallace said: "Lisa elevates humble food into something beautiful. She's a brilliant champion and possibly the best celebrity MasterChef winner we have ever had."
