MASTERCHEF duo Gregg Wallace and John Torode are a match made in TV heaven – just like Saturday Night Takeaway duo Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly.

When asked in an exclusive interview, “Are you a more mature and wise Ant and Dec?”
Gregg quipped: “No — actually, I think we’re a more attractive Ant and Dec.”
John added: “Are we more mature? Well, we’re definitely older!”
Masterchef returns to our screens next week for its 17th series.
‘Spoon-for-hire’ Gregg said he’ll never stop doing the show as it’s his ‘happy place’[/caption]
The competition will no doubt rest on a knife edge once more as the fresh set of cooks show off their signature dishes in a bid to please the Aussie chef and East End foodie — or as Gregg likes to call himself, “the spoon-for-hire”.
And fans will be pleased to know that the pair intend to continue making the BBC1 show — which returns on March 1 at 9pm — for as long as they can.
Gregg said: “I’m never going to stop doing it. I expect to be doing that when I’m 90 years old. That’s my happy place, that is, Masterchef.”
But the pair have more than one happy place — being at home with their respective wives.
John, who married Lisa Faulkner in 2019, gushed: ‘She makes me see the real. She makes me see the achievable. She makes me see the egalitarian’[/caption]
John joked that the foodie pair are ‘definitely older’ than the Geordie duo[/caption]
John, who married actress and fellow chef Lisa Faulkner in 2019, gushed: “She makes me see the real. She makes me see the achievable. She makes me see the egalitarian.
“She really makes that happen and, yes, she’s a great leveller. And she’s very honest and she makes me smile.”
Gregg also can’t believe his luck having wife of four years Anne-Marie Sterpini on his arm, saying: “Well, look at Mrs Wallace — my bald head clearly hasn’t stopped me attracting my beautiful wife.”
