The much-loved cooking competition series will officially be returning on Monday March 1 – so not much longer left to wait at all.
Presenter Rylan, 32, took to Twitter to announce the exciting news, sharing a photo of him and the rest of the Ready Steady Cook cast all socially distanced on set.
‘READY… STEADY… COOK… Is back!’ he wrote. ‘Thrilled we were able to film series 2 and even more thrilled to announce that it starts Monday 1st March at 3.45pm and every weekday on @BBCOne for 6 whole weeks. Join us for some fantastic easy recipes to change up those lockdown dishes.’
Rylan also explained some of the changes to the upcoming series as a result of the ongoing pandemic in a later tweet.
He said: ‘This series ALL CHEFS will be part of every show. As no audience due to social distancing our 3 chefs who aren’t competing will be judging the green and red kitchen.’

Of course, fans were thrilled at the prospect of the show’s return, with one responding: ‘So excited to watch this! Perfectly timed just like last year.’

While one user excitedly tweeted: ‘Argh this is the best news we’ve had so far this year hun, I can’t wait to watch!’

We certainly have to agree.
Ready Steady Cook returned for a revived series in 2020 after 10 years off the air, with Rylan as host.
The original incarnation of the show was broadcast between 1994 and 2010, with Fern Britton presenting from 1994 to 2000.
Ainsley Harriott later took over presenting duties, and hosted until its end in 2010.
Ready Steady Cook returns on Monday March 1 at 3:45pm on BBC One.
