Let Battle Commence In The Kitchen On Board Britannia!

P&O Cruises, Britannia will be the centre piece for a new tv cookery programme, due to air in March 2016.

Named ‘Battlechefs’, the new new programme will be shown on Watch and will feature 10 celebrities who will battle it out against one another both on the ship and in port.

Celebrities will include Alex James of Blur, Keith Dufy of Boyzone and Susannah Constantine from Trinny and Susannah. They will take part in a series of challenges to see who has got what it takes to be a chef on the high seas.

Judging the competition will be Celebrity TV Chef and P&O Cruises Food Hero, Marco Pierre White.

Vice President for Marketing P&O Cruises, Christopher Edgington spoke of his excitement at the new show.

We are excited about this new, energetic travel and cooking programme, which will be the first at sea.

“All these celebrities were chosen for their foodie credentials and we hope they will be back to run cooking classes in the Cookery Club. This is a really good way to showcase dining and travel”

Britannia boasts a fine cookery school on board the ship and has already seen classes taught by Mary Berry and James Martin take place this year, on Britannia’s inaugural sailings.
