Six months after emerging as this year’s fan-favourite on The Traitors, amateur sleuth, fizzy rosé lover and all-round icon Diane Carson is about to return to our screens.

On Wednesday evening, it was announced that Diane would be back on the BBC this summer as part of the cast of Celebrity Masterchef.

She leads a star-studded cast that includes Sugababes legend Mutya Buena, reigning Strictly Come Dancing champion Vito Coppola and Team GB athlete turned Gladiator Harry “Nitro” Aikines-Aryeetey.

Announcing her casting, Diane wrote on her personal Instagram: “Never one to shy away from a challenge, I’m delighted to announce that I’m next headed for the Celebrity Masterchef kitchen!!

“Soon to be found cooking up a storm. Unless [Ross]’ roasting of my cooking was entirely correct. Which we all know it won’t be. Actually, you’ll just have to watch to find out how I get on, won’t you?!”

She added: “Have I learned my lesson about going onto a TV show to prove a point to my kids? Clearly not. This is a fabulous show, and I’m delighted to be taking part.”

Filming on the third season of The Traitors UK is expected to get underway soon, with a widely-rumoured celebrity version also tipped to air in 2025.
