MasterChef presenter Gregg Walace, 56, has raged that “every barbecue” he’s ever been to has been “rubbish”, lamenting the fact that the hosts of the casual get-togethers have been woefully ill equipped to serve guests. The Celebrity MasterChef judge, who co-hosts alongside John Torode, 55, cited undercooked food and a lack of space to put his drink and cut up his meat as the reasons for his rage.

Every barbecue I have ever been to was rubbish

Gregg fumed: “Every barbecue I have ever been to was rubbish.”

The former greengrocer went on to cite the “uncooked” state of food and lack of table space as reasons behind the harsh criticism.

He continued: “I turn up and find the same lump of uncooked meat on a paper plate and I have to try to cut it with a plastic fork in one hand and a drink in the other.”

Speaking to this week’s Radio Times, the presenter advocated for hosts of the event to be better prepared for barbecue season.

“Make sure your guests are given a proper plate, proper cutlery and somewhere to put their drink,” he demanded.

“And that each person has more than one paper napkin!”

But Gregg didn’t stop there and went on to roast one pal for burning his meal.

He said: “I once saw a man with a sausage that was actually on fire, turning it.”

Co-presenter John Torode joined in and continued to blast British men’s infrequent attempt at barbecuing.

He said: “Suddenly, the sun comes out and men try to undertake possibly the most difficult culinary process ever, namely cooking over an open flame to produce something delicious.”

The celebrity chef explained that people’s biggest downfall in attempting a barbecue was trying to cook too many varieties of food.

John’s advice for the near perfect barbecue was to practise.

He stated: “Do it over and over again and perfect it – it will taste much better that way.”

Last month Gregg broke his silence on making the “tough” decision to leave the BBC show Eat Well For Less, after eight years of hosting the programme alongside his co-star Chris Bavin.

Speaking to he said: “I’m really proud of that show and it’s going to carry on going and it’s hugely popular, I just found it increasingly difficult to do.”

Dad-of-three Gregg welcomed his baby son Sid with wife Anne-Marie Sterpini in 2019.

He continued to explain: “I’m getting older, I’ve got a baby boy here, I just wanted to cut back somewhere and that was a lot of travelling.”

“With Eat Well, you’re gone for two days at a time regularly and I was just getting tired.”

MasterChef airs at 9pm on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays on BBC One.
