Free tickets to watch new series
Ainsley Harriott is back in the Ready Steady Cook green and red kitchens for the 21st series of Britain's best-loved cookery show.
Two top chefs have just twenty minutes to create culinary masterpieces from a bag of mystery food ingredients chosen by two celebrity guests.
After 20 minutes cooking, the guests get to sample the mouth-watering dishes and the studio audience chooses the winner, using electronic voting pads.
The chefs then compete for the role of head chef in the demanding Quickie Bag Challenge. They just have ten minutes to whip up an array of delicious dishes from a Ready Steady Cook food bag brought by a specially invited member of the audience.
Ready Steady Cook will be recording at BBC Television Centre in Wood Lane on Monday 24 August. Doors open at 3.10pm.
There will also be recordings on the following dates. Each day has a lunchtime recording and an afternoon recording. Doors open at 12.35pm and 5.35pm:
