But it’s a different story for Atomic Kitten star Liz Mc Clarnon.
While Kerry Katona, 33, has just given birth to her fifth child with partner George Kay, and Natasha Hamilton, 31, is pregnant with her fourth baby with 5ive hunk Ritchie Neville, Liz is happy playing auntie to their broods.
While none of the celebrity contestants were in dead-end jobs waiting for a win to catapult them into a coveted career, five of the seven winners have gone on to promote their love of cooking on some level.
The Atomic Kitten had never cooked before taking part in Celebrity Master Chef, due to spending her life in hotels since the age of 16 travelling with the girl band.
Since her win she has made a number of TV appearances on cooking programmes, and can claim to be the only celebrity in the UK to have created her own pasta dish for Pizza Hut.
She told host Ruth Langsford and guest host James Martin: "Cruel comments are tough for me to read, but as an adult, and being in the industry for many years, I just have to put on my armour and get on with.
She is also the only winner to have managed to woo steely judge John Torode, as the two have been dating since late last year.
2008 winner Liz Mc Clarnon certainly learned more from the show than the average celebrity.
The popstars got engaged in 2003 after two years of dating.
Mc Clarnon first got close to Ryan after they were both in New York with their bands during the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Whole Again, are performing with the line-up that brought them.
