Andy Allen was the only judge to return to the show this year after Melissa Leong was eliminated and Jock Zonfrillo tragically died in April last year, just one day before season 15 aired.

Andy, 36, who first joined the panel in 2020, admitted he was unsure about returning after Jock’s devastating loss but ultimately decided to do so after realizing it was what his friend would have wanted.

He was joined on the 2024 panel by MasterChef season one runner-up Poh, food writer Sofia Levin and French chef Jean-Christophe Novelli.
