Who are the MasterChef judges?

Just like the last series, Gregg Wallace, Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti will be judging the competition.

Gregg fronts the original MasterChef series with John Torode.

Marcus and Monica are both top celebrity chefs in their own right.

Gregg has said that filming wasn't easy as adjustments were made to keep the show Covid-safe.

He said: "Filming wise it has been OK, but we now taste the food individually rather than standing around the plate together and we move around each other seamlessly, we call it the MasterChef Dance."

Monica added: "We had Sam [floor manager] walking around with a two-metre stick to make sure we weren’t standing too close together.

"We had a Covid officer every day doing temperature checks when we arrived and reminding us throughout the day to sanitise and keep our distance, so it was very different."
