A Network 10 spokesperson said:
“We are always looking for content that will engage our under 50s audience and complement our existing schedule. Australians of all ages, including children, are spending more time in the kitchen.
Junior MasterChef Australia is a great way to showcase the best and brightest young cooks and their love of, and passion for, food.
“The previous two seasons of Junior MasterChef Australia were hugely popular and a joy to watch.
“It is also important for us that we ensure the continuity of employment for our production partners. The industry must remain in as strong a shape as possible so we can continue to produce great local content and keep our audiences entertained and connected.”
If you think your child is a whizz in the kitchen, casting is open to all kids aged between nine and 14 who have a love of food and think they are up to competing in the MasterChef kitchen
