The first team set to star on My Kitchen Rules 2022 has been revealed - and they're a loveable father-daughter who aren't afraid to speak their minds!
Alice, 31, and her father Peter, 56, admit they often bicker in the kitchen, but stand by the ethos that there is always "room for one more" at the family dinner table.
"That's always how we show we love each other. Food is family. Food is love.
"Being with loved ones and sharing food and stories is the most wonderful thing about my upbringing," Alice says in a sneak peek.

Alice, who favours a wild mushroom risotto as her go-to entrée for guests, describes her relationship with her dad as tumultuous.
"We are very similar in our approach to everything, which is why we often butt heads.
"We are both very dramatic, so things often blow up in an epic way," she explains.
In a preview for the highly-anticipated new season, Alice's unique style leaves new judge Nigella Lawson scratching her head, after she describes an instant restaurant rice dish as "bangin'".

Fellow judge Manu Feildel then steps in to explain "bangin'" is an Aussie term describing something positive.
But how will Peter and Alice cope with the heat of the MKR kitchen?
Early indications are good for the pair, with Nigella describing one of their meals as "a joyful plate of food".
"One of the many reasons you were put in this world is to put crumbs on things and then fry them," the celebrity chef tells Alice in the preview.
Alice admits it's time for her to spread her wings after five years of working in the family café.
Winning MKR would bring her one step closer to realising her food truck dream: Asian small eats with big flavours and no fuss.
Meanwhile her father Peter, a former banker, has aspirations of opening a high tea room, combining his love for baking and chatty front-of-house skills.
