This week has seen Sam temporarily put down the microphone and pick up a spatula for channel W’s new cookery show at sea, Battlechefs. The show has brought together ten celebrities for a gastronomical journey around the Mediterranean.
Joining forces with P&O cruises the competitive cooking show has so far seen the celebrities placed into two groups and take it in turns as head chef in the hope that they will capture the attention of acclaimed chef Marco Pierre White.
Monday marked the start of cooking for Sam and the rest of her celebrity team who include EastEnders actor and her current Chicago co-star John Partridge, Boyzone member Keith Duffy, JLS member JB Gill and fashion guru Susannah Constantine.
This week Sam and her team have been learning dishes from some of the top chefs and restaurateurs in Italy and been putting their cooking skills to the test back on board the ship, with the intention to recreate the dish to be judged by Mr White. Tonight it is Sam’s turn to don the head chef title and combine her cooking and leadership skills to conjure up something special. The competition is set to heat up as the fight is on for the Battlechef title on Friday.
Make sure to watch Sam tonight at 7pm on Sky channel 109, Virgin 124 and BT 311
