“Producers didn’t just want to create a generic Christmas version of the show, so they decided to make it an ‘all-stars’ affair too.

“And the celebrities they’ve chosen to come back certainly made an impression with their personalities and cooking the first time round.”

The BBC has yet to confirm the show or the line-up.

Janet appeared in 2013 and also made it all the way to the final.

Vicky, 32, also reached the final, this time in 2019, narrowly losing out to ex-EastEnders actor John Partridge.
