A former Pussycat Doll has cooked her way through the final of Celebrity MasterChef to be crowned the winner.
Kimberly Wyatt, 33, impressed the judges with a starter of seafood soup, a loin of lamb and her own Sinatra cheesecake.
The singer said: " This has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. The whole reason for being in MasterChef was because I am a new mum, and to create something for my little Willow to look up to, and I think that's what this represents.
"I'm absolutely elated, this has been one hell of an experience, and I have definitely learnt so much. It's been an incredible challenge."
Judge John Torode said: "There's a Pussycat who got her claws firmly into this competition and didn't let go. Kimberly was daring, she pushed and she always did something that was a little bit on the edge."
He added: "Kimberly's food has changed to stuff which is refined, really interesting and very elegant."
Gregg Wallace said: "I think Kimberly today was extraordinary, from the lady that came in here giving us berries and fish to the sort of food she is now presenting is incredible."
Kimberly beat Big Brother winner Ryland Clark and singer Sam Nixon.
The trio had to cook Michelin-star dishes for some of the country's best chefs, before being tested by the judges.
Clark admitted his nerves got the better of him in the final, but managed to craft an edible The Shard pudding complete with the river Thames.
Ex-EastEnders star Scott Maslen was booted off the show after failing to impress the judges.
