About her new role, Andi said at the time: "I am so completely thrilled and honoured to have been asked to expand my role at Great British Menu!
"It's an amazing opportunity to understand the journey that the chefs go through and to watch the evolution of the dishes before they come to judges chamber is a mind blowing revelation."
