Sex-assault charge rocks MasterChef
BEN Ungermann’s swift departure from MasterChef came in the same month he was charged over a sexual assault.
Victoria Police confirmed Ungermann, 33, had been charged with two counts of sexual assault on March 6.
It followed an alleged incident at Melbourne’s Docklands on February 23. The Queenslandbased chef was bailed to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on June 25. The alleged offending is understood to have taken place while Ungermann, pictured, was filming the latest season th Channel 10 cooking show.
Fans had been left guessing why he was no longer on the show, especially when he failed to appear on last week’s episode featuring Katy Perry.
Ungermann said on social media last month: “Don’t believe everything you read guys.” of
