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

Age: 32

From: Blackpool

Occupation: Butcher

Cooking Style: "My cooking style is a mix of different influences. I grew up eating mostly home-cooked meals, so I'm comfortable with making a variety of dishes from scratch. I also love trying new things, so I'm always looking for new recipes to try out. In general, I would say my cooking style is pretty and flavourful. I like to cook modern food but sometimes you can't beat the classics."

Why MasterChef?: "I entered MasterChef because I love to cook - it's my favourite hobby. MasterChef is the Champions League of cooking competitions and is great to watch. I'm also keen to see how I fare against other amateur cooks."

Ambition: "My cooking dream is to open a butcher's shop-themed restaurant, where diners can choose how their meat is served. For example, what cut of steak they want and how thick, and then have in-house butchers cut it in front of you."

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