BBC Three's youth version of MasterChef, from Shine TV, is set to return for a second series in 2023, with applications now open for the new series.

The series sees up-and-coming young food talent between the ages of 18 and 25 enter the MasterChef kitchen, put through their paces by a panel of expert judges and exciting guests.

The hopefuls undertake a variety of unique new challenges designed to push them to new culinary heights and reflect Britain’s food revolution – where a new generation of young foodies are rewriting the rules.

No prior experience will be necessary – applicants will be invited from anyone in the age group who thinks they have the raw talent, enthusiasm and dedication to transform themselves into the next foodie sensation.

BBC Three's Fiona Campbell said of the first series: “With its focus on the culinary talent of tomorrow, Young MasterChef has all the ingredients to be a big success for us and we can’t wait to watch the next generation of food lovers from across the UK cook up a storm on BBC Three.”
