Lisa Snowdon was crowned the winner of the TV series after she impressed the judges with her delicious three-course dinner.
BBC Breakfast covered the show’s final this morning as they welcomed the brunette beauty, 50, onto the show to share how it felt to take home the award.
She told viewers: “I’m honestly so blown away. It’s such a life changing experience. I feel like this isn’t rea! I just can’t believe it.
“I couldn’t have wanted to win something that meant more to me than this. I couldn’t wait to tell my mum, my dad and my nephew.”

One user tweeted the journalist: “Thanks a lot @TVNaga01 we won’t ruin the Celebrity MasterChef final result if you haven’t seen it, but we will tell you he is one happy man…! Erm I wonder if Lisa Snowdon or Mel Blatt have ever been described as that before…”
But the raven-haired beauty wasn’t taking the issue lying down, as she hit back at one angered viewer on social media.
Clarifying what she had said on air, Naga replied: “I did not say man – I said ‘very happy winner’.”
A slew of fans were quick to defend the broadcaster agreeing that they also did not hear her say ‘man’ in the teaser, as one penned: “I can vouch for @TVNaga01 on this one.”
