MasterChef fans seriously distracted by Gregg Wallace's appearance as new series kicks off

MASTERCHEF: The Professionals returned to our screens last night with an array of delicious cuisine on display – but viewers were more distracted by Greg Wallace's appearance.

Monday night’s episode saw fans of the show reunited with Gregg, Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti as they judged the first four competitors of the hit BBC show’s 14th season.

However, fans of the show were quick to comment on Gregg's physique as dozens flocked to Twitter to praise the 57-year-old for his "incredible" appearance.

One viewer exclaimed: “Wow! Gregg Wallace on Masterchef is looking amazing. I’ve been a massive fan of the show since day one and it’s amazing to see how far he's come."

Someone else said: “Is it just me or has Gregg lost a ton of weight? He’s looking better than ever before.”

While another penned: “Fair play to Gregg for getting into incredible shape. How will it last with all this mouthwatering food on display, though?”

Gregg’s weight loss is no secret, as he recently revealed the inspiration behind his four stone weight loss – his wife Anne-Marie Sterpini.

Doctors had to give Gregg a pretty serious warning that if he didn't do something about his weight as he was on the fast track to a heart attack.

In 2017, Gregg opened up to The Sun about his decision to lose weight – and even shared his tips and tricks for maintaining a balanced lifestyle. 

The celebrity chef thought nothing of visiting a chippy once per week, ordering takeaways and boozing every day.

Now, with the new MasterChef season upon him, Gregg has swapped the unhealthy food for exquisite cuisine cooked by some of the best chefs in the country.

Alongside Gregg and Monica last night, fellow co-host Marcus revealed how to make perfect bangers and mash.

The Michelin-starred chef picked the new series' first skill test and demonstrated what he was expecting from this year's contestants. 

He showed how to make scrumptious bangers and mash, adding his own flair with a flambéd stout gravy.

Gregg asked the chef why he had picked bangers and mash for the show's first skill set of the series. 

"It's not only a home-cooked dish, it's a pub dish, it's a restaurant dish.

"There are lovely, little key skills in here Monica and I will be looking for.”

MasterChef: The Professionals returns on Thursday, 9 November at 9pm on BBC One.
