When MasterChef returns for its third season next year, a couple of familiar faces are rumoured to be taking centre stage.
Word is celebrity chef Matt Moran has been promoted to a beefier role on the hit TEN series, which will help take some of the strain off current judges Gary Mehigan, Geaorge Calombaris and Matt Preston.
With a gruelling six-month filming schedule underway for the next season of MasterChef, Moran and Donna Hay will be helping shoulder the weight of mentoring the aspiring chefs through the competition.
Hay will move into a mentoring role, which is a step-up from her recurring guest judge spot last season.
FremantleMedia Australia is yet to confirm the changes to the show despite the word from insiders.
