AN exciting line-up of celebrity chefs has been announced for the UK tour of Ready Steady Cook Live, which comes to Hampshire in 2014.

Tony Tobin, pictured, famed for the TV series, appears at The Mayflower, Southampton, on Sunday, February 9.

Chef-patron of The Dining Room in Reigate in Surrey, he has appeared on the show more than 300 times since 1992.

Following the TV format, guest chefs will work against the clock to prepare a meal, backed up by the classic competing Red Tomato/Green Pepper kitchens.

During the show the audience can get tips from the chefs, enjoy some insider gossip on making the TV series and will have the chance to ask the chefs questions.

Tickets are on sale now.
