While we’re used to seeing normies running frantically around the MasterChef kitchen, ten Aussie celebrities are set to step out of their comfort zones in Celebrity MasterChef Australia 2021.

From Sunday, October 10, the stars will flex their culinary skills (or lack thereof) for judges Melissa Leong, Andy Allen and Jock Zonfrillo in their craziest role yet!

There’s no shortage of familiar faces, from a star of TV’s Offspring to the offspring of a world-renowned chef, the menu of competitors is serving up the works for our viewing pleasure.

Nick Riewoldt

AFL Star

Known for kicking it with the almighty Saints, we wonder if this former field star can dish up something yummier than a Four’N Twenty pie. 

Ian Thorpe

Olympic Swimming Gold Medalist

From the butterfly stroke to a butterflied chicken, Thorpie is going for gold in the MasterChef kitchen. 

Rebecca Gibney

Aussie TV Royalty

With Packed to the Rafters already under her belt, the only question left is whether this television star’s dishes can pack a punch!

Matt Le Nevez

TV Heartthrob

While you might still be recovering from THAT death in Offspring, Matt Le Nevez will be gracing our screens again in a fight for the Celebrity MasterChef trophy.  And no, we’re not getting emotional, we’re just cutting onions.

Dami Im

X Factor Winner and Eurovision Contestant

Trading in her microphone for tongs and the Eurovision podium for a non-stick pan, Dami Im is geared up to use her (lamb) chops to blow the judges away.

Dilruk Jayasinha


In the comedian’s latest push outside of his comfort zone, can the former I’m A Celeb star turn his disinterest in cooking into a passion and serve up more than comic relief?

Chrissie Swan

Reality TV Titan-Turned-Radio Host

No stranger to reality TV, former Big Brother and I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here star Chrissie Swan is eyeing first place. As a mum of three, there’s no doubt she has a few tricks up her sleeve.

Colette Dinnigan

Fashion Designer

The renowned fashion designer knows what it takes to have good fashion sense, but does she know the importance of good taste in the kitchen?

Archie Thompson

Melbourne Victory Legend

He might be good with his feet as an all-time goal-scoring record holder, but can this football star’s skills translate to the kitchen in order to stake claim another win?

Tillie Ramsay

Hell’s Kitchen Heir

No idiot sandwiches here — Tilly is none other than renowned chef Gordan Ramsay’s daughter, and you bet he’ll have equipped her with some skills worthy of taking out the title.

Celebrity MasterChef Australia 2021 premieres on Sunday, October 10 at 7:30pm on Channel Ten and 10Play.
