Of all the reality shows on Australian television, MasterChef may be the most wholesome one of the bunch. And now, we finally know when it will be returning to our screens.
The much-loved cooking show sees the return of all your favourite former contestants plus three brand new judges, Jock Zonfrillo, Melissa Leong and season four winner, Andy Allen.
And seeing as we'll all be spending a lot more time in front of the TV in these unprecedented times, here's when to tune in.

After a long weekend of scoffing as many Easter eggs as possible, you can indulge your foodie side even more by watching MasterChef Australia: Back To Win on Network Ten on Easter Monday.
So flip forward to Monday April 13 in your diaries and bookmark it because you are not going to want to miss this season.
In the first-look trailer (which you can watch in the player above), celebrity chef extraordinaire Gordon Ramsay joins as a guest judge for the first week.
"We're in for one of the best seasons in the history of this competition," he even teases in the trailer.

While it may take some getting used to with the new judges replacing Gary Mehigan, George Calombaris and Matt Preston, the 24 contestants battling it out have all donned MasterChef aprons before.
Returning stars including Poh Ling-Yeow, Hayden Quinn and Callum Hann are all hoping to redeem themselves this time around.
"We're all mates, we're all part of the MasterChef family, but as soon as you get into that kitchen, it's game on," one contestant confesses in the trailer.

In an exclusive chat with Now To Love, season one runner-up Poh confessed that despite appearing as a mentor on the last season, Network Ten never offered her the position to be a judge.
"If I had been asked, I would have had to think about it deeply," she explained, adding that all those claims she was being considered for a judge role were "just rumours."
"I can't tell how I would feel unless I was asked."
