Rumours suggest Seven may announce a new cooking show with Matt Preston & Gary Mehigan at the network Upfronts this week.
Last week Matt Preston denied the pair were joining My Kitchen Rules, but confirmed they were “talking to other networks and producers about new projects for 2020 and beyond”.
But George Calombaris is not expected to be part of any line-up.
MasterChef judges are understood to be signed to 10 until the end of the year with various “hold-backs” thereafter which determine how long they must wait before signing with other commercial networks in Australia.
But they are free to pursue international opportunities with all three remaining popular overseas including in countries such as India and South Africa.
Seven’s Upfronts will be held late on Wednesday afternoon and is tipped to unveil the lengthiest slate of new shows compared to Nine and 10’s renewals.
