Pop star Anastacia received some cordon bleu cookery lessons from celebrity chef Gino D'Acampo during a U.K. Tv appearance on Tuesday (05Aug14).

The I'm Outta Love hitmaker was treated to tips on how to sear the perfect steak and she then helped out chopping vegetables for a dish of chicken with mushroom masala.

She admitted her love of cooking was forced to take a back seat when her singing career took off in 2000 because she spends most of her time in hotels, so she was grateful for guidance during her appearance on Let's Do Lunch With Gino & Mel.

Sampling the chicken she helped to cook, she told D'Acampo and his co-presenter Melanie Sykes, "This tastes awesome - thank you!"
