The last season was aired back in 2019 and featured a star studded line-up of judges – actor Shane Jacobson, chef Manu Feildel, Pussycat Dolls’ Nicole Scherzinger and musical theatre star Lucy Durack.
Comedian Jim Jefferies recently slammed Channel Seven for replacing him as a judge in favour of Manu Feildel.
Last month, the comedian spoke to Triple M radio host Mick Molloy about his axing, taking a swipe at his celebrity chef replacement in the process.

‘I hear he’s a big deal in Australia… I would trust him if the bloke was judging food, but he’s judging entertainment,’ the 44-year-old said.
‘If you had me on a cooking show, eventually people would go, “I don’t think he should be judging this, he’s not qualified,” he continued in reference to Manu.
Jim said he was especially seething given the fact he relocated to Australia primarily for the role.
‘And then they (Channel Seven) kept on d**king me around, and going “Oh the offer’s coming”. I had a schedule and everything like that, I knew who the other hosts were, and then I just didn’t hear anything,’ he said.
