Who are the MasterChef: The Professionals judges?
Last year's winner was Gary Maclean he said: “I was a bit concerned I was older but I think I’ve ticked a few boxes for people – I’m older, a family guy, Scottish and the Scots always get behind the Scots in these things. The biggest thing though is the fact I’m a lecturer I think that really sparked an interest, the fact I teach for a living but I’m still happy to go out here and learn more.”
