Speaking to the Mirror about his experience cooking for MasterChef judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace, Dion said: "It’s hard to explain the pressure of going on this show. You walk into the kitchen and think, oh my gosh I’ve seen this on TV and I’m actually here. It’s nerve-racking, but really good fun. I absolutely loved it.

"Working under pressure in your own area of expertise is one thing. Whatever’s thrown at you, you’ve dealt with it before, whether you’re a defender or a striker or an attacker. But when you’re told to cook with something you’ve never cooked with before you think, ah no! What do I do with this? Your mind goes completely blank."
