EastEnders actor Richard Blackwood reveals Celebrity MasterChef gave him ‘nightmares’
EastEnders actor Richard Blackwood has revealed participating in Celebrity MasterChef has given him “nightmares”.
The 50-year-old actor – who played Vincent Hubbard in EastEnders from 2015-2018 – has opened up in a new interview about how he couldn’t stop frustrating his recipes.
He admitted he was initially “anxious” when asked to do the show, explaining how the cooking show gave him many “sleepless nights.”
Creepy! EastEnders actor Richard Blackwood has revealed participating in Celebrity MasterChef has given him “nightmares”.
He told The Mirror: “You never thought cooking could turn into a nightmare, but it really does – it’s tough.
“You have sleepless nights and dream of dishes that you have made or want to make yourself. Whatever the food was, it wasn’t even edible. It was literally, you just can’t stop thinking about food.
“Preparing for MasterChef is like preparing for a quiz that asks general knowledge questions; They don’t know where they’re going.
“No matter how much you study geography or history, you could go there, well, the specialty is horror movies.”
