Twisting his melons for Come Dine With Me as Shaun Ryder to cook on Christmas special

Former Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder is twisting his melons again for a special Christmas episode of Come Dine With Me.

The singer, who braved the jungle in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! four years ago, will be joined on the Channel 4 show by former Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan, comic Mark Dolan and children's TV presenter Kirsten O'Brien.

The channel said Ryder would put on a "Madchester Christmas with melons on the menu", while viewers will see Flanagan invite the other celebrities to a "sparkly Christmas party".

O'Brien is serving a traditional Scandinavian festive feast, while Dolan hosts a Victorian-era meal of pea soup, a three bird roast and a plum duff.

Ryder, who combined chart-topping success with the Manchester band with an open and excessive drug habit, called his 2012 memoirs Twisting My Melon.
