Marco Pierre White is set to make a long-awaited return to MasterChef Australia.

Channel 10’s hit cooking show shut down earlier in January when the virus spread among the cast and crew on set and several members tested positive.

But the green light was given for filming to continue at the MasterChef camp in Ascot Vale, Victoria, later that month.

“Marco was amazing because he understood what was going on with me as a young man,” Jock previously said.

“People were very quick to judge a drug addict. He did not do it. I was on my last chance, there’s no doubt about it, but he treated me just like everyone else.

Indeed, Marco has previously appeared on MasterChef Australia, but previously said he left the show for Hell’s Kitchen Australia due to former judge Matt Preston.

In 2017, Marco swore “at his mother’s grave” to exact revenge on judge Matt Preston after comments he made on Sydney radio about Marco’s son, Marco Pierre White Jr.

Matt had slammed Marco Jr. on The Kyle and Jackie O Show, after the young man bragged about his drug abuse and sex with prostitutes.

“It’s all that rich, London trust fund baby, trust-type stuff – it’s another world,” Preston said.

Marco was so infuriated by what Matt said that he refused to even discuss it in a television interview the following year.
