Vorderman: No X Factor in food show

Carol Vorderman hosts new show Food Glorious Food

Carol Vorderman has promised there will be no X Factor-style showdowns in new cooking competition Food Glorious Food.

The show, made by Simon Cowell's production company Syco and styled as a cross between The X Factor and The Great British Bake Off, sees contestants from around the country compete to wow judges with their best home-cooked dish.

But host Carol insisted Food Glorious Food is "not competitive".

"This is not X Factor - it has a very different, very British feel, it's kind of eccentric. I know it's a competition, but it's very gentle and even those people that don't get through or even don't get rosettes, tend to be very happy. There's no tears at bedtime!"

The show features a variety of interesting contestants, from the oldest - 92-year-old Eunice from Cornwall - to the naked chef.

Carol said: "That was a bit dangerous. He was wearing an apron and was filmed from the back quite a bit, but I refused to go and stand next to him!"

:: Food Glorious Food starts on Wednesday, February 27 on ITV
