Mas­ter Chef judges ‘ will re­turn to TV’

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS - FIONA BYRNE

GE­ORGE Calom­baris be­lieves he, Gary Me­hi­gan and Matt Pre­ston will re­turn to our TV screens.

The MasterChef judges sur­pris­ingly parted ways with the hit cook­ing show af­ter 11 years in July.

But Calom­baris pre­dicted “the band” would be back on screens. “Will the three of us be on TV again? I can pretty much guar­an­tee you that,” Calom­baris said. “In what ca­pac­ity? Who knows? I am let­ting peo­ple who are a lot more ex­pe­ri­enced than me worry about that.

“They (Me­hi­gan and Pre­ston) could go off and do their own thing, they don’t need to hang with me, but that just goes to show that is true friend­ship, you stick together through thick and thin. The band is hav­ing a rest now and I can’t wait to see what hap­pens next.”

Calom­baris also con­firmed he was gear­ing up for the first of his in­dus­try talks on work­place com­pli­ance, af­ter a Fair Work Com­mis­sion found his com­pany un­der­paid workers $7.8 mil­lion be­tween 2011 and 2017.

“They will kick off soon and I am ex­cited that I can go and talk about the in­dus­try I love and talk about the mis­takes that we made as an or­gan­i­sa­tion,” he said.

Ge­orge Calom­baris.
