“It’s time for chapter two of George”
After his Masked Singer performance, former MasterChef judge is looking ahead.
Former MasterChef judge George Calombaris is looking ahead to new projects after his return to the small screen last night.
Calombaris was revealed as the singing “duster” on The Masked Singer -none of the guessing panel had tipped him.
After a controversy around his restaurants under-paying staff, this morning he told Studio 10 he was looking ahead.
“It’s time for chapter two of George. It’s been a tough time over the last couple of years but we’re only looking forward now. Number two, I’ve got a soft spot for Channel 10. You guys know that. I love the network. I love everything that they believe in and the joy that every show puts into people’s hearts and minds. You know what… I’m going to stick to cooking.”
On social media last night, not everybody agreed with his inclusion however, with many criticising his casting.
But Calombaris had no regrets about his singing performance.
“I loved my 11 years on MasterChef. This is just another opportunity that I took with both hands when I got told ‘Would I like to be part of it?’ I’m very grateful for it.”
