The BBC has answered all our prayers by announcing that a new version of MasterChef is on the horizon!

Just this morning, the BBC broke the news on Instagram that Young MasterChef is officially coming, and we can’t wait.

The cooking show is opening its doors to up-and-coming cooks between the ages of 18 and 25 for the 10-part series, which will air on BBC Three.

Applications are open now, so what are you thinking - can you handle the heat of the MasterChef kitchen?

Over the 10 episodes, the hopefuls, who will need “raw talent, enthusiasm and dedication” will be tested on their cooking skills by a panel of expert judges as well as celebrity guest judges. The idea of the show is to “reflect Britain’s food revolution” where a new generation are “rewriting the rules”.

As applications open online, BBC’s controller of entertainment, Kate Phillips, said: “We’re delighted that Young MasterChef will be coming to BBC Three.

“We know how much BBC viewers love MasterChef and the BBC Three series will be a great opportunity to tap into the huge wealth of young budding chefs out there, from all over the UK.”

Fiona Campbell, controller of BBC Three, said: “With its focus on the culinary talent of tomorrow, Young MasterChef has all the ingredients to be a big success for us and we can’t wait to watch the next generation of food lovers from across the UK cook up a storm on BBC Three.”

Production company Shine TV’s executive editor for MasterChef, David Ambler, added: “We’re super excited to be coming to BBC Three with a fresh new Young MasterChef competition.

“It’s a great opportunity for any young person passionate about food and we can’t wait to open the kitchen doors to discover some incredible cooks from all backgrounds.”

There’s no word on exactly we can expect Young MasterChef to air, but as soon as we hear anything, you’ll be the first to know.
