Renowned for his longstanding association with ITV's This Morning for over 22 years, Vickery is considered one of Britain's favourite chefs, and is known for both his live and pre-recorded demonstrative cookery segments.

He is no stranger to accolades, having won a Michelin Star, four Rosettes in the AA guide and the Good Food Guide's Restaurant of the Year, among others.

Accompanying Vickery on the Saturday line up will be the winner of the Great British Bake Off 2023, Edgell.

A teacher and sports enthusiast by day, Edgell moonlights as a content creator for food enthusiasts of all ages, blending education and culinary talent as he teaches how to cook and bake.

Fellow Bake Off star Hunter will also be on the line up.

Known for his love of pies and desserts, thanks to his mother-in-law's tutelage in perfect shortcrust pastry, his culinary skills have grown to include a passion for patisserie.

Attendees can expect to see him take on baking challenges on the day.

Rounding up the Saturday line-up is Murf, one of the founders and directors of successful franchise The Beefy Boys.

The Hereford-based entrepreneur recently clinched the 'Burger Chef of The Year 2023' at the national burger awards, where The Beefy Boys also won 'Burger of the Year'.

Patrons can look forward to Murf sharing tips and tricks on upping their burger game.

On the Sunday, Cookery Theatre demonstrations will be hosted by BBC's Eat Well For Less? presenter, Chris Bavin.

Previously announced celebrity guests for this segment include best-selling cookery writer and TV Chef Rachel Allen and chef, author, educationist and entrepreneur Cyrus Todiwala, as well as the festival's host Bean.
