She said: 'I am convinced that food brings people together, makes families, makes communities and that the table is a place of talk that can help people to share what they have in their hearts, and that it can transform our world.'

During the TV programmes the nun, who has also a twitter account where she writes about the economy and politics, will cook classics like anise doughnuts, local stews, her personal favourite of pumpkin with potato and also typical Argentinian pastries.

The soul sister amazed the crowd and stunned judges when she performed her divine interpretation of the song.

Dressed in full religious regalia Sister Cristina Scuccia, who hails from mafia hotspot Sicily, managed to get all four chairs to turn around during her blind audition.

She was joined by three other nuns from her convent, and they were so delighted by her singing they jumped up and down with glee.

Explaining her decision to go on the show, the Ursuline Sisters of the Holy Family member told the panel: 'I have a gift and I'm giving it to you.'
