Kadeena Cox has been crowned winner of Celebrity MasterChef 2021, after a tense final.

The paralympic champion, 30,  beat out competition from Joe Swash and Megan McKenna to take home the trophy, and said she is ‘absolutely buzzing’ over the win.

The athlete, who has represented Great Britain in sprinting and cycling, impressed judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace in a final that saw the trio attempt to cook a ‘flawless’ three-course meal in two hours.

After being announced as the winner, she enthused: ‘I gave everything I could today. I am absolutely buzzing. This smile is not disappearing from my face for a while.

‘I am just proud of myself for doing it. I didn’t change who I was, I learnt along the way, but I was still Kadeena right to the end.

‘It has just been a great journey and one that I am never going to forget.’

The star pulled out all the stops for her winning menu, putting our microwave dinner to shame.

Kadeena kicked it off with a starter of torched salmon marinated in lime juice, with caviar, tempura prawn topped with a crab meat mayonnaise, asparagus salad and a Bloody Mary granite.

Her main consisted of a French trimmed rack of lamb, Caribbean curried goat pie, roasted carrots, spinach, silver skin onions and a lamb curry sauce – while she presented a dessert of Choux au Craquelin filled with mascarpone whipped cream, with hazelnut praline crumb and tempered chocolate.

Heaping praise on her dishes, John said: ‘So many times during this year’s competition I forgot Kadeena had multiple sclerosis and was not only battling for the trophy but had her own personal battle going on.

‘She just never let up, she didn’t stop! For me she is a true inspiration. Her food is special, not just because it is technically brilliant but also because it has heart, it’s got soul and it’s got love.’

As Gregg agreed: ‘What a lovely, lovely final. Today from Kadeena we got very special dishes. It’s not just the quality of Kadeena’s cooking, it’s the originality of the ideas.

‘There is a reason she has a bedroom full of medals – she is a serious competitor.’

Kadeena came out on top of a star-studded line-up, with Katie Price, Duncan Blue and Kim Cetinay among the other contestants.

The 2020 series of Celebrity MasterChef was won by Irish-Iraqi broadcaster and YouTube star Riyadh Khalaf.

Celebrity MasterChef is available to catch up on iPlayer.
