  • Calling all MasterChef fans, we’ve got some great news! Our favourite cookery show is back on our screens and it’s much sooner than we thought.

    Everyone loves a dose of MasterChef and we couldn’t be more excited to hear that the show is set to be back on our televisions this March, and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever! That means more dessert dramas and dinner disasters – bring it on!

    The dynamic duo, John Torode and Gregg Wallace, will be gracing us with their presence on BBC One on Wednesday 23rd March at 8pm and we couldn’t be more excited.

    Some of our favourite recipes from MasterChef judges John and Gregg (as well as past contestants!)

    Now don’t get us wrong, we love MasterChef: The Professionals and Celebrity MasterChef but nothing really compares to the classic. 40 amateur chefs battling it out in the heat of the MasterChef kitchen to impress celeb chef John Torode and foodie expert, Gregg Wallace. Cooking doesn’t get tougher than this!

    What to expect on the new show

    Don’t worry, the show will stay in the same format as it did last year with that all-important Calling Card round; a dish that shows off the contestants’ talent, the Invention Test; an hour to create a dish using one or two trays of ingredients and the final challenge; cooking dinner for a trio of former MasterChef competitors. Phew!

    If that doesn’t get you excited, we don’t know what will! We’ll be counting down to next Wednesday for our first dose of the new series. Bring it on.

    P.S. We’re exceptionally excited about Gregg Wallace’s many facial expressions! He certainly gives Bake Off’s 2015 winner Nadiya a run for her money.
