Speaking ahead of the show, Kevin said: “I’ve been a huge fan of Great British Menu ever since it first aired and am incredibly honoured to have been asked to represent Scotland this year.

“I’m up against some seriously talented Scottish chefs and I’m really looking forward to everyone at home watching my journey on the show.
