MasterChef Australia judges George Calombaris, Matt Preston and Gary Mehigan have reunited for a special project


Former MasterChef Australia judges Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston reunited on Sunday to support a very worthy cause.

Veteran TV judges took over the kitchen at the Sorrento Hotel on the Mornington Peninsula for a Friends of George event to raise funds for Bowel Cancer Australia.

The three former reality stars have agreed to reunite for the cause, in support of George’s late father Jim, who died of the disease in November.

George, 45, admitted he felt an instant connection with his former colleagues when he reunited with them.

“It’s really nice, it’s like riding a bike with these guys. We have great memories together,” he told the Herald Sun.

“The old cliché about being like family is true. George’s dad was a big part of our family, the whole thing is community,” Preston added.

The event was hosted by Eddie McGuire and photos to be shared on social media showed the three judges enjoying their lives as they worked up a storm in the kitchen.

Another heartfelt snap captured the trio posing up a storm with McGuire outside a luxury hotel.

It was reported earlier this month that the trio had seen their international careers take off when they returned to television.

The TV personalities, who shot to fame as the original judges on Channel Ten’s popular cooking show, have «developed a huge fan base» in India, according to the Herald Sun.

The judges held dinners and masterclasses in three cities in the region which were a huge success, as well as filming two episodes of the Ultimate Homechef of India TV series.

Billboards featuring Mehigan, Calomaris and Preston were even erected across India following their final season of MasterChef in 2019.

Mehigan’s manager Justine May told the publication that the three will return to India in August.

The trio hosted the hit cooking show for ten years, from 2009 to 2019.

However, in July 2019, Channel 10 announced that the three judges would not be returning for season 12 of the series – they were later replaced by Andy Allen, Jock Zonfrillo and Melissa Leong.
