The winner of this year's Celebrity MasterChef is revealed as one of Danny Jones, Lisa Snowdon or Mel Blatt.

Lisa Snowdon has been crowned this year's winner of Celebrity MasterChef.

The 50-year-old presenter beat off tough competition from McFly's Danny Jones and All Saints star Mel Blatt in a close final, now joining an elite club of winners that includes the likes of Lisa Faulkner, Greg Rutherford and 2021 champ Kadeena Cox.

The final challenge of the series required the final three to produce a full meal - starter, main and dessert - for judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode in a timeframe of just two hours.

Snowdon's winning menu began with a starter of poached rhubarb and pan-fried mackerel with a fennel slaw and thyme oil, which was followed up by a main course of pan-fried duck breast on a sunflower seed puree with pickled, sauteed and fried mushrooms and cavolo nero, then to finish, she served chocolate tart alongside a cigar filled with creme fraiche and sour cherries.

"I'm honestly so blown away. It's such a life-changing experience," she said after the result was announced. "I feel like this isn't real! I just can't believe it.

"I couldn't have wanted to win something that meant more to me than this. I can't wait to tell my mum, my dad and my nephew. I am on cloud nine!"

Torode said: "Lisa throughout this competition has taken the everyday and elevated it into something special.

"This final she dared to do something that was going to be a gamble, and the gamble paid off. Her food is fantastic."

MasterChef is expected to return in November with a new series of spinoff MasterChef: The Professionals.
