Gregg Wallace has admitted he would consider taking part in the celebrity spin-off of 'Come Dine With Me' if he was offered "the right price."

Gregg Wallace will star on 'Come Dine With Me' for "the right price."

The 56-year-old presenter may be a dab hand when it comes to the kitchen but he has admitted it would take a mega-deal for him to be persuaded to slip into his apron and whip up a three-course meal for some of his celebrity friends for the popular culinary show.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: "It depends on how much they will pay me. Everybody has got their price, if they paid enough money I would do it. I really like the show, I think it is an amazing concept; I love it; food, weird characters and tension.

And it's not just the pay package Gregg will negotiate if he joins the Channel 4 celebrity spin-off show as he'll also like to choose which guests he'll have sitting at his dinner table.

He explained: "I would like to have dinner with John Torode, my fiancée Anna [Sterpini] and Martin Johnson - the World Cup winning captain of the England Rugby side in 2003."

But his four competitors will certainly be in for a treat as Gregg will whip a mouth-watering meal, complete with fish, meat and sweets.

He added: "I think I would serve some Whitstable oysters to start, and then I'd serve roast lamb and then I would make a rhubarb crumble. The problem is with that it is come across as the UKIP of food."

Meanwhile, for now, Gregg will be offering further insight into food and drink at The Ideal Home Show from March 18 until April 3 when it returns to London Olympia.
