Masterchef announced the news on their official Instagram account, writing: "We are SO excited to be able to reveal that #Strictly Come Dancing star @OtiMabuse will be waltzing her way into Celebrity #MasterChefUK this summer! Full line up to be revealed soon…"

Death in Paradise actress Elizabeth Bourgine, who plays Catherine Bordey in the Caribbean crime drama, was also announced on the same day. Let's take a look at the full line-up…
