CELEBRITY Best Home Cook has been comforting lockdown watching.
The new studio has had a shake-up due to the pandemic, and it features Mary Berry judging from a mezzanine platform (with binoculars!) Here's where the new series was filmed…
Where is Celebrity Best Home Cook filmed 2021?
Best Home Cook is filmed at Pinewood Studios, located in Buckinghamshire.
The studios are 17 miles west of central London and seven miles from Windsor.
Many big budget productions have been filmed at Pinewood such as James Bond and the Carry On films.
Production company Keo had a Best Home Cook set ready to use from last year, but things had to be rearranged due to the logistical challenges of filming amid a pandemic.
The BBC said the original set was nowhere near big enough to hold 10 celebrity cooks, 3 judges and 1 presenter, whilst all remaining 2m apart.
In order to follow the stringent rules, the crew built an extension onto the set.
The new build included a a mezzanine floor for the judges as well as a seating area for the panel to sit and discuss the celebrities' dishes.
With the three judges given their own designated area, there was enough room for the cooks’ kitchen benches to be spread out, allowing social distancing to be adhered to.
Unlike last year, the cooks won't be living in a house together whilst filming the series.
