People from Weston-super-Mare with a love of food are being asked to sign up for the chance of winning a £10,000 on My Kitchen Rules.

The TV show is searching for the best amateur cooking enthusiasts in the country, and it is hoping to find either a couple or two friends from Weston to represent the town.

The show’s production company, 7 Wonder, is looking for people from all walks of life with one thing in common – a passion for good food.

There is a £10,000 prize up for grabs in series two of the show, which will once again be on Channel 4.

The show is based on the knock-out success of Australia’s My Kitchen Rules and the UK version will see Michelin-starred chef Glynn Purnell and celebrity chef Rachel Allan act as judges.

Rachel Allen said: “I’m delighted to be hosting the new series of My Kitchen Rules UK with the amazingly talented Yummy Brummie, Glynn Purnell. We’ll 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.”

Anyone interested in applying for My Kitchen Rules UK 2017, to be in with a chance of winning the £10,000 prize, should contact the casting team on MKR@7wonder.co.uk
