Amanda Mealing wants to go on MasterChef

Amanda Mealing wishes she could cook so she could go on 'MasterChef'.

The 'Casualty' actress has revealed if she were to take part in any reality show it would be the BBC cooking competition but admits she wouldn't do very well because she can't even make toast.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "If I could cook I'd do 'MasterChef' but I'm really awful, I burn toast, but I really love it."

The 47-year-old star is also a huge fan of 'Strictly Come Dancing' and is jealous she can't follow in her co-star Sunetra Sarker's footsteps by taking part.

She explained: "Well I used to be a dancer so I don't think it would be allowed but I love 'Strictly' and obviously, having been a dancer, I really appreciate it, but I think that one's kind of out for me."

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty revealed she was thrilled to dress up for the British Academy Television Awards because she's used to wearing her character Connie Beauchamp's doctor's uniform and, more recently, prison overalls.

She shared: "I'm really excited because I'm usually wearing scrubs and stuff or, at the moment, prison garb, so it's quite nice to get dressed up."

Amanda also admitted she'd like to get stuck into more "gritty" storylines after her character was arrested for murder last month.

She added: "I wouldn't mind if Connie got out a bit more and did a bit more action, I like getting in with the nitty gritty, I like the stunts and things."
