Sinitta serves up raw meat on Celebrity Masterchef
Sinitta fails to impress the Celebrity Masterchef judges with her raw meat dish on the show's premiere on Wednesday night (22Jun16).
The singer boasted about cooking for her "fussy" ex-boyfriend Simon Cowell and tackling squid dishes in her kitchen at home, but she turned the stomachs of judges Gregg Wallace and John Torode, who refused to eat her extremely rare meat offering, served with a raw aubergine.
Gregg called one of her dishes "terrifying" and refused to sample it for fear of salmonella or food poisoning, stating, "That's raw meat!", while sidekick John told Sinitta, "Your aubergine is not very nice and the lamb tastes of just processed lamb."
Prior to her appearance on the programme, the pop star told The Sun newspaper, "I’m doing some very creative and visually stunning dishes. I’ve made a very ugly squid look beautiful. I’ve done some vegetables with lamb - I think it was lamb, anyway. And I served brilliantly, I think, in a real restaurant kitchen."
Sinitta is just one of the famous faces appearing on the new series of Celebrity Masterchef, alongside former The Only Way is Essex star Amy Childs, singer Jimmy Osmond and ex EastEnders actor Sid Owen.
While it seems Sinitta's true calling is not in the kitchen, she has now has her sights set on a judging role on TV talent show The X Factor, telling the publication she has "begged, screamed and cried" for Simon to get her a role on the show. She's also convinced she would be a better choice than Nicole Scherzinger, who has returned to the panel for the upcoming season of the programme.
"Nicole squirms and doesn’t want to tell people that they are awful," Sinitta divulged. "She doesn’t quite understand that anyone can audition and her job is to get rid of the bad and keep the good. You see her sitting there just excruciatingly embarrassed trying to say no to people."
