My Kitchen Rules UK has been recommissioned for a second Channel 4 series.
Showing confidence in the format, Channel 4 has upped its order from the 30 hour long editions the show launched with last year to 40 this year. Casting is currently underway for contestants from across the country to take part in the series, which will air this summer.
“My Kitchen Rules UK is a great format for amateur cooks. I’m amazed at the breadth of creativity contestants across Britain show when creating a unique dining experience for each other, and for cooking legends Michael and Prue. We’re thrilled to be serving up a second helping later this year.” – Syeda Irtizaali, Commissioning Editor, Entertainment at Channel 4
Spawned from Australia’s ‘My Kitchen Rules’ – a hit for the Seven network – the competitive elimination format pits pairs of amateur cooks against each other who will run pop-up restaurants from their home. A cash prize and a chance to prove their home cooking is up to restaurant standard is at stake for the competitors who must impress Michael Caines MBE, a two-time Michelin Star awarded restaurateur and Michelin Star awarded restaurateur and food writer Prue Leith.
Sky Living first brought a British version of the format to screens in 2013 with Jason Atherton and Lorraine Pascale as co-hosts and judges.
“We’re delighted to be bringing back more My Kitchen Rules UK. We received a great response from series one. So now we’re now on the hunt for more passionate home cooks, and we can’t wait to shine a light on some of the best food talent the country has to offer.” – Debb Swindells, Series Producer
7 Wonder produce the show for Channel 4.
