Gold medal-winning Paralympic rider Natasha Baker is taking on a new challenge this festive season — cooking a Christmas roast with Gordon Ramsay.

Natasha, and several other athletes, will be joining the famous chef at his home this morning (25 December) to take part in Gordon’s Christmas Cookalong Live.

There they will help prepare a festive feast, which viewers can cook along with at home.

“I’m looking forward to it,” Natasha told H&H. “I love cooking, I won Ready, Steady, Cook four years ago so there’s a bit of pressure!

“I’m useless at baking cakes and things but I like making roast dinners so I’m feeling fairly confident it will go ok.

“Gordon seems a really nice man and I’m a fan of his. He’s a bit scary but at least it’s on television in the morning so he can’t swear!

“I’ve had my nails done and I’ll be wearing a Christmas jumper so I’m all ready!”

Natasha is expected to be on the programme in the first hour.

Gordon’s Christmas Cookalong Live is on air from 10am-1pm on Channel 4.
