MasterChef returns for 16th series

Another 60 contestants will battle it out with their utensils over the space of eight gruelling weeks, as judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace search for the UK’s best amateur cook.

The competition begins with five weeks of heats featuring two brand new challenges. The contestants will need to bring ingredients from home to cook their Signature Dish in the first round, with the best two heading straight through to the third.
