Lisa Faulkner would 'hate' to appear on 'Come Dine With Me'.
The actress and chef - who was crowned winner of 'Celebrity Masterchef' in 2010 - has confessed she would never appear on the Channel 4 reality show, which sees contestants host a dinner party at their home, as she doesn't want people "snooping" around her house.
The blonde beauty - who is currently starring alongside Rosemary Shrager and Matt Tebutt on Food Network UK's 'Kitchen Superheroes' - exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I would hate to do 'Come Dine With Me' because I wouldn't want anyone snooping around my house."
However, the 42 year old admitted she would be open to cooking on the show for her former 'Holby City' co-stars Angela Griffin and Nicola Stevenson.
She said: "I would have my best friend Angela Griffin and Nicola Stevenson and probably my boyfriend, I know they'd be nice about my food because they all like it!
"I'd do some prawns for starters, then I'd do some sort of big beef wellington."
Lisa feels "lucky" to have learned everything she knows about creating delicious dishes from her mother and grandmother.
She said: "My mum was an amazing cook, she was brilliant and I pretty much learnt from her and my grandma.
"My mother was an amazing cook, all home cooked. She used to cook French Bluebell pudding as well which is hilarious because it was the '80s! All of her food was beautiful so I remember everything from a beautiful little salmon en croute, to ratatouille, to chicken tarragon, to shepherd's pie. I've learned to cook so many different things, I was very lucky."
'Kitchen Superheroes' is on weeknights at 6.30pm on Food Network UK (freeview 41, freesat 149, Sky 248, virgin 287)
