MasterChef Australia has reportedly found a judge to replace the late Jock Zonfrillo and they’re a very famous face.
After the Scottish chef was found dead on May 1, rumours have been swirling about who’d be taking his place on the upcoming series of the hit cooking show.
However, according to Woman’s Day, iconic British chef Jamie Oliver, 48, is set to take over Jock’s role.
An insider told the magazine that the restauranteur has negotiated a whopping $2 million deal, which includes accommodation for his family when they visit him in January, as well as his trip back to the UK for Christmas.
Reportedly, the celebrity chef hasn’t agreed to take up the gig permanently. It’s also believed that he’ll begin filming in November.
The cooking icon has made many appearances on MasterChef Australia over the years.
He was even a guest judge on the 2023 season, so it’s safe to say he knows his way around the Aussie MasterChef kitchen.
