The musician, whose band had a massive post-grunge hit in the 90s with the song Swallowed, is starting his own cooking programme.

Gavin Rossdale's new cooking and entertainment show will be called E.A.T., and, as reported by Deadline, will feature celebrities, who will visit the musician’s home in the Hollywood Hills. The Bush singer will “design, prepare and serve them a three course meal”. 

So far, the confirmed guests are legendary Welsh singer Tom Jones, and Jack McBrayer from 30 Rock. 

The show will see Rossdale sit down with his guests for a chat about their lives and careers and, according to Deadline, he may even jam with some of them (as in, play some music together, rather than making actual jam). 

Whilst E.A.T. is not yet attached to a network or a streaming platform, Rossdale has reportedly started filming the show, with Roundtable Entertainment producing the series.

The singer said: “Roundtable are the exact partners I’ve been looking for to produce this project. They understand my vision and will help execute a compelling series in which we get to see behind the public persona of people we know and admire for their work.

“This show is about connecting more deeply with them, hearing their stories, walking in their shoes. It’s hard to be surprised anymore; but the simplest surprises are the human revelations that occur over food and drink.”

Fans of the Bush frontman may already know about his love of cooking, as last year he made a collection of videos for peopletv.com, such as a vegan bolognese which he shared on his Twitter page.

If you aren't aware of Bush, they are a British rock band formed in London, England at the start of the 1990s. 

Whilst their single Swallowed was a top ten hit in the UK, ultimately the group found their biggest success overseas. Their debut album, Sixteen Stone, went multi-platinum. They went on to sell over 10 million records in the United States alone, and 20 million worldwide.

Following a break-up at the start of this century, Bush reunited in 2013, and released their most recent album in 2020.
