Tv's one-time Robin Hood is returning to the small screen - as a chef.

Almost three decades after robbing from the rich to give to the poor in mid-1980s drama Robin of Sherwood, actor Jason Connery has signed up as a contestant on Britain's Celebrity Masterchef.

Sean Connery's son, 51, is set to join Oscar winner Emma Thompson's sister Sophie, who appeared in films like Four Weddings and a Funeral and Eat, Pray, Love, model Jodie Kidd and singer Kiki Dee, among others, on the show, which debuts next month (Jun14).
