Get to know MasterChef 2024 contestant Hope, including their age, profession and hopes for the competition.

Age: 31

From: Newton Longville, Buckinghamshire

Occupation: Digital Project Director

Cooking Style: "My style of cooking is modern European small plates with a big focus on bread – especially sourdough. Any dish that can be put on toast or mopped up with a slice of my fresh sourdough is something I love to make.

"I'm heavily influenced by amazing dishes from dining out and travelling. I've visited 60 countries and love to take inspiration from places I've been. I love how food is an international mutual ground with everyone. You can connect with strangers through the language of food and I think that's a beautiful thing."

Why MasterChef?: "I want to know if I'm as good as my friends and family say. They're always going to be kind to you, so it would be great to hear what John, Gregg and any other professionals have to say.

"I want food to be something I can 'do' in my professional life. I want to have my own supper clubs, share my recipes on my social media and share that love of food with the community. I'd love for MasterChef to be able to help be a platform to enable me to do that."

Ambition: "I think everyone should have the confidence to cook great food. I'd love for the public to be able to follow recipes I share on my social media and be inspired to give things such as sourdough a go. I want to share my passion for bread and help people make great bread-based dishes themselves. I love sourdough and how versatile it is. I want to be able to host workshops to help people with their sourdough and coach people through them. I think everyone should have access to great bread!

"I'd love to host supper clubs and create a 'bring a plate' community where I host small events for people to bring along a dish they love and are proud of and share this with other people."

MasterChef begins Monday, April 1 at 6.30pm on BBC One and iPlayer.
