Monica Galetti's MasterChef replacement announced

Monica Galetti's MasterChef replacement announced
Anna Haugh will take the place of Monica Galetti on the new series of MasterChef: The Professionals, it is announced.

Anna Haugh, a former head chef under Gordon Ramsay, has been named as Monica Galetti's replacement on this year's edition of MasterChef: The Professionals.

Earlier this week Galetti revealed that she had decided to take a break from the show after 14 years in order to focus on her family and business in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic.

Now the BBC has confirmed that Haugh - chef patron of Myrtle Restaurant in Chelsea - will fill in for her on series 15, joining Gregg Wallace and Marcus Wareing as a new crop of budding pros compete for the title.

"MasterChef has an impeccable reputation and legacy within the hospitality industry," said Haugh, also a regular on the BBC's Morning Live.

"I have long-admired Monica as an incredible chef and she's paved the way for female chefs. It's a privilege to be keeping her seat warm in the MasterChef kitchen."

The new series will be filmed in the coming months for broadcast on BBC One in November.
