Celebrity MasterChef sign up legendary TV advert singer for 2023 series | The Sun
HE made a name for himself by singing on the famous Go Compare adverts.
And now opera singer Wynne Evans has landed another big job – after signing up to Celebrity Masterchef.
Wynne, 51, joins a slew of stars who have agreed to take part in the BBC cooking contest judged by Gregg Wallace and John Torode.
A source said: “Wynne has signed up to Celebrity Masterchef and wants to finish on a high note.
“Fans of the show will be getting to see the real Wynne and not his character Gio Compario who they are used to seeing on the Go Compare adverts.
“Wynne has a show on BBC Radio Wales and is a big hit with listeners – so the Beeb wanted to try him out on a big show like Masterchef.

“He isn’t the best cook in the world but Wynne is no novice in the kitchen and will be bringing a touch of Welsh influence to his dishes.”
A MasterChef spokesperson said: “We do not comment on speculation over the Celebrity MasterChef line-up.”
Wynne is joining stars including Strictly Come Dancing professional Dianne Buswell and singer Jamelia in the Celebrity Masterchef kitchen.
Dianne is following in the footsteps of her Strictly co-stars Katya Jones and Oti Mabuse, who have both previously taken part.

A television insider told The Sun: “Strictly stars always seem to be popular with MasterChef producers, not to mention the viewers at home.
“That is why almost every year they select a famous face from within the show’s ranks of pros. And they always seem to do rather well.
“Although their dance skills don’t help them much in the kitchen, their natural competitiveness does give them the edge over many of the other celeb cooks.”
Other Strictly professionals who have taken part include AJ Pritchard, Johannes Radebe and Gleb Savchenko.
Dianne may be giving Wynne and Jamelia a run for their money – as she revealed earlier this year that she is a dab hand in the kitchen.
She said: “When I get time, I absolutely love to cook.
“My mum’s Italian and I’ve grown up learning to cook from her.
“I’ve always been quite a foodie. I have got two older brothers, my dad loves food — we all love food in my family.
