Oooh, guess which Gogglebox star has just landed an amazing new gig?

No, not Scarlett Moffatt, though as we all know, she’s pretty busy at the moment anyway.

No, we’re talking about the brilliant Reverend Kate Bottley.

You know, the vicar with the quiet hubby and lazy pooch that would lie the couch with its legs in the air!

Well, she has just signed up to appear on the next series of Celebrity MasterChef.

The news comes after it was revealed that she is now being represented by the same agent as May Berry and Claudia Winkleman.

A source said: “Kate is very excited for MasterChef and hopes this will properly launch her career.

“The nation will definitely see a new side to her.”

Last year Kate took time out from Gogglebox to help her daughter study for her GCSEs.

However, that didn’t stop her from taking on extra roles on the telly.

Not only did she front a BBC documentary about Judas Iscariot last Easter, she also appeared on Celebrity Mastermind (below).

“The documentary was a great way to launch her career but MasterChef will truly cement her in the public sphere,” a source told the Sun.

The new series is due in the summer and will also feature Rachel Stevens.
