A Scottish children's entertainer who once set fire to his grandmother's oven cooking Yorkshire puddings has become an unlikely winner of a national cooking competition.<br />
<br />
Dad-of-five Kenny Beatson, 44, had hoped to impress his late grandmother Ellen Beatson with the perfect Sunday lunch when he doused his mini Yorkshires in oil and placed them in a hot oven.<br />
<br />
However, in the process the oven erupted into flames and the roast beef was burnt to a cinder, meaning the family had to order in a Chinese takeaway instead.<br />
<br />
Yet in just six weeks, the self-confessed 'disaster chef' has undergone a remarkable transformation into a culinary guru to see off nine rivals in a live cook-off.<br />
<br />
The finalists of Kenwood's Disaster Chef competition had been selected from hundreds of hopeless cooks who entered a national competition, judged by a renowned chefs including Michelin-starred Raymond Blanc. SEE OUR COPY FOR MORE DETAILS. <br />
