In the latest trailer released by Channel 10, we caught our first good glimpse at the celebrities in the kitchen, where celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay made a special guest appearance.

We also saw plenty of emotional moments take place, where judge Melissa told one of the cooks: “Understanding why this is so special for you, adds this extra level of meaning to the food that’s just so beautiful.”

We also saw the celebrities being pushed to their absolute limits, and some incredible dishes served up as a result.

Ahead of the season premiere, judge Andy expressed how excited he was about the series in an exclusive chat with New Idea.

“I think it’s definitely going to be a hit because it was one of those things which was just epic to turn up every single day to work and you were just wondering what was going to go down and it was a really good time so I’m looking forward to it,” he said.

He also said that a big highlight of the show was the cast, who not only “got on with each other”, but also “really embraced the experience”.

“I think after the first couple of challenges it went from like ‘I’m not very good’ to ‘I’m just going to give it a red hot crack’ and they really embraced the process so it’s going to be amazing to see how it translates to the screen,” Andy said.
