Celebrity MasterChef hasn't even started yet but there's already a hot favourite set to win

Cooking up a victory!

By Alex Lilly
It's one of the most wholesome reality TV shows in Australia and now the nation's favourite cooking show is getting some star power.
Celebrity MasterChef hasn't been on screens since 2009 and the long-awaited revamp is the first featuring judges Jock Zonfrillo, Melissa Leong and Andy Allen.
Despite the fact that it's early days, though, there's already a frontrunner.
2021 will see famous faces including Packed To The Rafters star Rebecca Gibney, Olympian Ian Thorpe and Offspring star Matt Le Nevez try their hand at cooking up a storm.
However the contestant rumoured to take the title of Celebrity MasterChef is sports presenter and former AFL champ Nick Riewoldt who currently has odds at 1.22 to win.
Tilly Ramsay, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay's 19-year-old daughter, has odds at 6.00 and is tipped to place second whilst Melbourne Victory footballer Archie Thompson is in third spot at 8.50.

Nick, who is also a devoted husband and dad-of-three describes himself as "a psycho competitor".
In fact, one of the trailers hinted that he could be this year's celeb champ.
After plating up a dessert style egg and soldiers dish, judge Andy's voice can be heard proclaiming "This is the stuff that wins you the competition."

If what the judges have said is anything to go by, we're in for a real treat this season.
"I am in awe of the talent, humility, warmth and humour shown by these horrifically talented humans. A real career highlight," Melissa Leong penned on Instagram.
Season four winner turned judge Andy Allen also remarked: "It was one of the funnest things I've done and as it turns out, these celebs have got game in the @masterchefau kitchen!"
