If there's one thing we love, it's curling up on the sofa and watching Masterchef. We particularly enjoy tuning in to the BBC show and shouting at the TV about how much better we could do; all while sat eating Super Noodles with a bit of old toast.
With this year's series wrapping up this week (the final was postponed after the sad news of Prince Philip's death, so we're still waiting on an exact date for the MasterChef 2021 final), you'll be glad to hear MasterChef will be back in 2022 to give us the opportunity to yell at the contestants and marvel at the often surprising words and noises that come out of MasterChef judges, Gregg Wallace and John Torode's, mouths.
The great new is, applications are now open for the 2022 series of MasterChef, so here's how to apply!
How to apply for Masterchef 2022
Applications for the 18th series of MasterChef are now open at the MasterChef website. But before you get excited about applying, be sure to read all the terms and conditions of who can and cannot apply to be on the show.
Firstly, you have to be 18 years old or older (as of September 2021), and you have to have the legal right to live and work in the UK - that includes the Isle Of Man and the Channel Islands.
Secondly, you absolutely cannot be a professional chef. Obviously...
The application website explains that competitors can't have a professional qualification from the last 10 years. They also can't have, at any point, derived the main source of their income from cooking or preparing food.
So, if you're eligible to apply to be on MasterChef... what are you waiting for?!
