BBC One Daytime has ordered a second season of Ready Steady Cook, returning for a further 30 episodes in 2021.
Produced by Remarkable TV, part of Banijay UK, the cookery show returned to screens in March 2020 following a 20-year hiatus. Host Rylan Clark-Neal is back in the kitchen, along with chefs Mike Reid, Romy Gill MBE, Akis Petretzikis, Ellis Barrie and Anna Haugh.
Clark-Neal said: “I’m very excited to bring Ready Steady Cook back for series two on BBC One. We never realized when series one was on-air the climate that we would be living in and how beneficial it was to so many at home watching, who were scrambling to make meals from random ingredients in the cupboard! I can’t wait to welcome new contestants into the Ready Steady Cook kitchen and am equally excited to taste our chefs’ fantastic creations once again.”
Carla-Maria Lawson, head of BBC Daytime and Early-Peak, added: “The Ready Steady Cook team is back with delicious and affordable food with more thrills than frills, serving up comfort food and great company when we need it most.”
Cat Lawson, creative director for Remarkable TV, said: “We were really pleased with how audiences reacted to the show’s return earlier this year and we couldn’t be happier to be bringing it back to BBC One. Rylan and our brilliant chefs are raring to go and will no doubt once again cook up a storm. Expect even more culinary inspiration served up with a large pinch of kitchen chaos!”
