Young MasterChef is to return for a third series on BBC Three, with applications now open for young cooks wishing to take part. For more details, click here.

The spin-off from the BBC One cooking contest sees nine of Britain’s best young foodies press pause on their day jobs to put their cooking skills to the test.

Judging their every move is Michelin-trained social media sensation Poppy O’ Toole, who is joined by new judge – chef, author and YouTube food star, Big Has.

The foodie hopefuls are hungry for success and are paving their own way outside of their day jobs; from running their own at home takeaway businesses, creating pop-ups and cooking for their growing social media followings. Now, they are taking another leap into the MasterChef kitchen to prove they have what it takes to reach the endgame.

Kate Phillips, Controller, Entertainment, previously said: “We’re delighted that Young MasterChef will be coming to BBC Three. We know how much BBC viewers love MasterChef and the BBC Three series will be a great opportunity to tap into the huge wealth of young budding chefs out there, from all over the UK.”

Fiona Campbell, Controller, BBC Three, previously said: “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.”

Young MasterChef continues Mondays at 8pm on BBC Three and iPlayer.
