Celebrity MasterChef, Scheduling, BBC One


We received complaints from viewers unhappy that the latest series of Celebrity MasterChef is being shown in a daytime slot.

The BBC's Response

This series allows a greater examination of the celebs' cooking skills as there will be more hours of Celebrity MasterChef than ever before. The Friday and Saturday evening programmes will ensure that viewers won't miss out on the main event as they pick up with the three celebs facing their last terrifying challenges and battling for their place in the semi-final.

While our audience may be more familiar with MasterChef being shown in the evening, this ensures that both those who consume our output during the day and in the evening can enjoy this series of Celebrity MasterChef. This format means viewers will get even more Celebrity MasterChef than in previous years and more of our audience can follow the competition. With 90 minutes of catch up in the peak schedule and availability on the BBC iPlayer we hope everyone can enjoy the series.
