The former England footballer has turned into quite the domestic god of late, often sharing clips of himself whipping up tasty meals on his Instagram page.

Doting dad Peter is the first to admit his passion for food. On a recent Instagram post, the singer shared a snap of a tasty-looking barbeque supper, writing: "I love cooking and if loving cooking is wrong...... I don’t wanna be right. #steviewonder #bbq #family." The TV presenter often posts photos of his latest dishes – we loved the look of his kung po chicken dinner that he cooked for his family in March.

Michael Buble

Singer Michael Buble just got even more romantic – if that's possible. Did you know the star was once a boat cook and fisherman as a teenager, which sowed the seeds for his love of cooking? Michael is married to Luisiana Lopilato and credits her with furthering his interest in food.

He told The Guardian: "I’m married to this beautiful girl [from Italy and Argentina] and [we] attend asados [a barbecue from South America]. Of course, now I’m making roll-it-out gnocchi with my mother-in-law. Great chorizo, great asado – I’ll freaking make everything. I just love to cook."
