    Casting producers are also reportedly chasing sports stars, local politicians and Hollywood actors currently based in Australia.

    Celebrity MasterChef last aired on Network 10 back in 2009, and featured celebrities including Michelle Bridges, Rachael Finch, Josh Thomas, Kirk Pengilly, Alex Perry, and winner Eamon Sullivan.

    Rumours first emerged in April that 10 was planning on reviving the series, with New Idea reporting that the show had received ‘the go-ahead’.

    According to New Idea, MasterChef judges Andy Allen, Melissa Leong and Jock Zonfrillo will also front Celebrity MasterChef, and ‘producers are working hard to develop an A-list line-up of potential contestants’.
