FOLLOWILL TURNS TV COOKING JUDGE

KINGS OF LEON frontman CALEB FOLLOWILL has swapped a guitar for a frying pan – he is starring in a new U.S. cookery show.

The Sex On Fire hitmaker has signed up to be a judge on American food lovers’ show Iron Chef, in which a celebrity is pitted against an expert cook in a number of tasks.

Followill will judge the standard of the dishes – and his bandmates are ecstatic about the singer’s new role.

Drummer Nathan says, “The show is awesome. Me and Caleb are fans of nice meals and nice wine.”
