Curtis Stone, 2012 winner Andy Allen and an “unnamed female” are the latest named rumoured for 2020 MasterChef judges.
The Herald Sun teased the names in a speculative piece on Friday. They differ somewhat from the names Who magazine declared last month: Maggie Beer, Curtis Stone, and Poh Ling Yeow.
According to the latest report Poh Ling Yeow, Sarah Todd or Julie Goodwin are not on the list, while several cook-offs would be held in California, where Stone has restaurants.
“I’ve got some pretty crazy time commitments in the US but getting back over here and being a part of it and dropping in and out of the show has been really fun,” Stone said.
He added that negotiating time needed for filming would be very tough.
“I’ve got a pretty full schedule back in the States, but you never know.”
Filming for the series will begin sooner rather than later meaning 10 will need to confirm its new line-up in coming weeks, with the network Upfronts due in early October.
A 10 spokesperson said, “We are still casting and no decision has been made.”
