Gregg Wallace wants Terry Wogan to appear on 'Celebrity MasterChef'.

The former greengrocer - who judges the show alongside John Torode - admits he would love the Irish presenter to take part in a series because he has previously confessed a love for it.

He said: "I'd like to have Terry Wogan on, because he's a massive 'MasterChef' fan. He once said he loved the show because it's the only competition on TV where ugly people can win."

However, John has more lofty ambitions, and would love Britain's reining monarch Queen Elizabeth II to compete.

He added: "I'd like the queen. I think she'd like it and give it a really good go. I think she's be very competitive."

Any competitor who takes part on the show would have to be prepared to be pushed, John claims.

He added to Heat magazine: "It's our job to tell people what we think, so they can progress. People are physically and mentally exhausted on the show because we push them."

The next series of 'Celebrity MasterChef' will return to the BBC later this year.
