Great British Menu reveals all-star line-up of former chef winners for Christmas special

Former banquet-winning chefs including Jason Atherton, Simon Rogan, Tom Aikens and Lisa Goodwin-Allen have been revealed as just some of the names among an all-star line-up for a Great British Menu Christmas special.

BBC Two's Great British Christmas Menu will see the greats of the GBM kitchen compete to cook a six-course boxed festive feast dedicated to the nation's key workers and will air in early December over seven episodes.

For the Christmas special, taking Oliver's place will be comedian Kerry Godliman, joining Matthew Fort and Oliver Peyton on the judging panel.

Oliver will compere the scoring and have the deciding vote in the event of a tie.
