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.
MasterChef will be back in 2021 to give us the opportunity to yell at the contestants and marvel at the often surprising words and noises that come out of Gregg Wallace and John Torode's mouths. So here's everything we know about MasterChef 2021 aka series 17.
When does MasterChef 2021 start?
Hooray - we finally know when MasterChef 2021 starts. The 17th series will kick off on Monday 1st March.
MasterChef 2021 trailer
Hooray! We have our first MasterChef 2021 trailer to watch over and over and over again.
You probably already watched it a load of times at the top of this article, but here it is again. You're welcome.
MasterChef 2021 episodes
Last year's series of MasterChef was made up of 24 episodes, so we're expecting more of the same in 2021.
MasterChef 2021 judges
Judging by the Instagram post above, John Torode and Gregg Wallace will return to judge MasterChef 2021. John and Gregg have fronted the show since it began in 2005, and it just wouldn't be the same without them.
MasterChef 2021 contestants
We don't have any information on the MasterChef 2021 contestants, but we'll let you know as soon as we do. Last year, the amateur cooks competed over a number of weeks of heats, but we didn't get to meet them properly until the first episode.
Last year, Thomas Frake beat off competition from the rest of the MasterChef contestants to be crowned the winner.
On winning the trophy, Thomas said: "Honestly, it’s a dream come true. It’s been immense and the best thing I’ve ever done in my life.
"I can’t see me not working in food for the rest of my life because it just makes me happy seeing other people happy with it."
John commented: "Thomas is a real talent and his food has always been about putting a smile on your face. I admire Thomas’ work ethic, he’s a grafter.
"He’s able to take a classic and deliver it with real style and finesse. That’s the gift of a great cook. He knows exactly the direction he wants to go in and, for me, his food today tasted fantastic."
And Gregg added: "Thomas has a definitive style. He takes the ordinary and make it extraordinary. I really admire Thomas. He wants to take all the foods that he grew up with and make them better.
"He has delighted me all the way through the competition and today I think his three courses were just exceptional. They had his heart and his soul in every single forkful."
