And where better to look for inspiration than our favourite celebs? Everyone from Kate Middleton to Ruth Langsford has been spotted wearing an apron, so we’ve rounded up the very best so you can follow their lead…

John Torode and Lisa Faulkner stressed Instagram followers out recently when they posted a video of themselves cooking in their wedding day outfits - without protection!
