Judges announced for BBC Three's Young MasterChef
Poppy O'Toole and Kerth Gumbs are revealed as the judges for new spinoff Young MasterChef.

Poppy O'Toole and Kerth Gumbs have been revealed as the judges on the new spinoff show Young MasterChef for BBC Three.

The new 10-part series will feature aspiring chefs aged between 18 and 25, who will take on the usual MasterChef-style challenges in a bid to be crowned champion.

O'Toole is a Michelin-trained chef who amassed a following of more than 2 million people on the internet through her persona 'Poppy Cooks', sharing tutorials of how to recreate restaurant-quality meals at home.

Gumbs, meanwhile, is one of the most renowned chefs in London, having worked at restaurants including Tom Aikens, Texture and L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon.

"I'm so excited to be judging Young MasterChef and getting to discover the amazing young cooking talent we have in the UK," said O'Toole.

"Having worked my way up through the ranks of professional fine dining kitchens to now teaching millions of amateur cooks online, nurturing the next generation with MasterChef feels like a perfect new role.

"I can't wait to eat some incredible food along the way – and just hope I can stop after a few forkfuls of the amazing dishes I'm going to see!"

Gumbs said: "I'm humbled to be joining such a highly esteemed team on MasterChef. Guiding the best upcoming foodies with some very cool cooking challenges is a huge opportunity.

"I'm buzzing with excitement to get started on what should be an incredible show."

Young MasterChef will be filmed this autumn for broadcast on BBC Three in early 2023.
