The presenter promises to answer the questions the audience have always wanted to ask, share classic anecdotes and dish up a sumptuous serving of MasterChef’s juiciest bits.

Gregg is a writer, media personality and former greengrocer. He is probably best known for co-presenting MasterChef, Celebrity MasterChef and MasterChef: The Professionals on BBC 2 and BBC 1.

He was born in Peckham, south east London, where he first watched Millwall and remains a Millwall supporter to this day.

Gregg began his career in Covent Garden Fruit and Veg Market. In 1989 he started George Allan’s Greengrocers, a company that built up to an eventual turnover of £7.5 million.

Based on his business success, he was invited to co-present Veg Talk on BBC Radio 4 with Charlie Hicks. He was the original presenter of Saturday Kitchen in 2002. Other TV projects include: Eat Well for Less, Inside the Factory, Turn Back Time, Harvest, Supermarket Secrets and Who Do You Think You Are?

Gregg’s autobiography, Life on a Plate, was published in 2012 by Orion Books.

He has two children, Tom and Libby, whom he has bought up on his own. And he has also gained two Rugby Union coaching badges.

Gregg Wallace comes to The Theatre on Friday, September 21. The show starts at 7.45pm. Tickets cost £20.

There is plenty of other entertainment at the venue next month, too. Highlights include King for a Day: The Nat King Cole Story on Saturday, September 15, while Son Yambu bring their authentic Cuban Son, the intoxicating fusion of Spanish and African rhythms that gave rise to salsa, to Chipping Norton on Saturday, September 22. A humorous, thought-provoking and gender-bending adaptation of The Tempest takes to the stage on September 26 and 27.
