With the weather we've had this past week, you may be forgiven for thinking we're already in October, we do however still have a fair few weeks before we can welcome Autumn and October's Motorhome & Caravan Show 2017, at Birminghams NEC.

It may be 8 weeks away but it's not too early for the organisers to whet our appetites with a first look at the celebrity line-up that will be attending the show. Celeb-chefs and the cooking arena are always a fan favourite at the NEC and have inspired us to really embrace cooking on site, rather than finding a local chippy or nearest gastropub, so we're very excited to hear that the organisers are really making a meal of it this time round.

With no less than 7 celebrity chefs gracing the show over 6 days, foodies will be full up on tips and recipes by the time they leave. For Starters Antonio Carluccio OBE acts as Head Chef, leading the line-up of this years culinary guest. A Famed restaurateur, writer and TV presenter we can't wait to see his take on holiday cooking.

Other guests include actress and Celebrity Masterchef winner, Lisa Faulkner. Winner of The Great British Menu's Ellis Barrie. ITV This Morning's regular Dean Edwards. Masterchef: The Professionals victor Steve Groves and local presenter and cookery writer Rustie Lee.

With all that on offer the CaravanTimes team will be attending the show armed with knives and forks!
