A third season of the BBC’s Ready, Steady, Cook revival has been cancelled. In 2020, after being reintroduced the year before, Rylan Clark-Neal will host the final episode of the famous cooking show.
We often have to make difficult decisions to grow new programmes. So after two fantastic series of Ready Steady Cook, we’re creating room in the schedule for some intriguing new titles that are likely to please viewers,” said a spokeswoman for the broadcaster.
“Our sincere gratitude goes out to Rylan and his team of chefs for making the comeback of this series so spectacular.” After a long break, Rylan returned to BBC Radio 2 earlier this month, so it’s not all bad news.
Starring two contestants who celebrity chefs assist, Ready Steady Cook has been running since 1994.
Her ex-husband, the famous chef Phil Vickery, 60, met Fern Britton, 64, when they worked together on the programme. This game show was hosted by 64-year-old Ainsley Harriott from 2000 to 2010 and was noted for its team names of Green Peppers and Red Tomatoes.
As a result of Big Brother’s demise on Channel 5, Clark-Neal has found work on the Strictly spin-off It Takes Two and hosting his own BBC Radio 2 programme and presenting ITV’s Supermarket Sweep reboot.
Zoe Ball hinted live on air, “I have some really good news to share with you, Radio 2 listeners,” she said. “On Saturday, our beloved friend Rylan will be back on BBC Radio 2. So many of you have reached out and shown your affection for him, so I know we’ve all missed him terribly.”
“So he’ll be back on his show soon. Rylan, how I’ve missed you. On Saturday, from 3 to 6 p.m.” In July, the former X Factor contestant announced that she was divorcing her husband, Dan Neal.
My mistakes, which I greatly regret, have unavoidably led to the dissolution of our marriage,” she said. A recent Instagram post stated, “I’ve taken a break from work since I’m not in a good place right now and I’m seeking help”. Thank you to everyone for your support and for respecting our privacy at this time. I am trying to take each day as it comes.”
