Stuart Ralston from Aizle and Noto in Edinburgh makes a return for the Great British Menu 2022, having lost out to chef Roberta Hall-McCarron last year.

There's also Fraser Smith from Angels with Bagpipes in Edinburgh and Adam Handling from Frog by Adam Handling in London. Adam trained for 16 years at Gleneagles as their youngest ever apprentice.

Joining them is Calum Montgomery who heads up the kitchen at the award-winning Edinbane Lodge on Skye.

Calum tweeted: "Well, here we go! Been holding onto this for a while! Blown away to have been approached to represent Scotland on this years @GBMofficial Tune into BBC2 next Tuesday @ 8 to see me competing against some INCREDIBLE Scottish chefs"

The Great British Menu returned to TV screens this month for its seventeenth series, which sees chefs from across the UK compete to be named Great British Menu 2022 winner.

What's the 2022 theme?

The theme for this year's show is '100 years of Great British Broadcasting', and chefs will create dishes inspired by this.

The theme was chosen as it's been 100 years since the BBC's first broadcast, which was in 1922. This event changed the way we consume media.

The final banquet will be held at Alexandra Palace in London with a host of famous faces from radio and TV in attendance.

Who are the judges?

It's a new line-up this year, with Tom Kerridge, Nisha Katona, the chef behind the very popular Mowgli Street Food restaurants and the author of four cookbooks; and Ed Gamble.

Here are 6 of the best castles with distilleries - plus upcoming projects including Midhope Outlander’s Lallybroch 

The show is hosted by Andi Oliver.
