Poh added that she was worried and & # 39; I don't know what to think about it & # 39 ;.

The trio stopped dramatically after breaking off negotiations with Channel Ten earlier this month.

Reports claim that the jury members, who had been in the program for 11 years, chose to run away after Ten refused to give them a substantial pay rise.

George had been confronted with demands that he be dumped from the reality cooking show because he had paid his restaurant staff nearly $ 8 million.

In a statement – avoiding calling the Calandaris scandal – Ten & # 39; s CEO Paul Anderson claimed that the decision followed months after unsuccessful talks with the chiefs.

There are rumors that Poh, together with Maggie Beer and Curtis Stone, will take over the three new jury members from MasterChef.

However, replacement jury members for the 2020 show of the popular show have yet to be appointed.
