Rachel Allen and Glynn Purnell to judge ‘My Kitchen Rules UK’

Chef and food writer Rachel Allen and Michelin star restaurateur Glynn Purnell will join forces as the new hosts and judging duo on Channel 4’s ‘My Kitchen Rules UK’.

The competitive cooking series will return for a second series later this year on Channel 4, after a successful launch last summer.

Channel 4 said that following the 30-part series, which was presented by two-time Michelin star chef Michael Caines MBE and food writer Prue Leith CBE, series two will be extended by a further 10 hour-long shows, revamped and ‘full of new surprises’.

‘My Kitchen Rules UK’ is based on Australia’s ‘My Kitchen Rules’, which holds the top spot as the country’s number one show on Seven Network and is now screened more than160 countries.

In the UK show, entrepreneurial amateur cooks open their own restaurants at home in a bid to scoop a cash prize of £10,000 and the right to say: “My Kitchen Rules.”

Rachel commented: “I’m delighted to be hosting the new series of ‘My Kitchen Rules UK’ with the amazingly talented Glynn. We will be judging some of the UK’s best home chefs who think they’ve got what it takes to win the grand prize.

“If you’ve got a foodie dream, then this is your chance. We’re looking for pairs of contestants who have a burning ambition to cook great food and impress not only Glynn and I, but a host of celebrity guest judges that will be joining us throughout the competition.”

Glynn added: “‘My Kitchen Rules’ is an absolutely brilliant TV showcase for amateur chefs who are passionate about food. I couldn’t be more excited to be part of it and I’m thrilled to be alongside my fellow judge and host Rachel, a highly respected culinary leading lady. I can’t wait to get started!”
