Coffee roaster Matt Sinclair, 27, lives in the coastal town of Noosa, Queensland. In a bid to impress the judges and make it into the MasterChef Australia kitchen, Matt is making a risotto – better known as the “death dish” because it has been the downfall of many previous contestants.

Fans of MasterChef Australia will remember our next hopeful, 31-year-old secondary school teacher Cecilia Vuong (pictured). The mother of two successfully made it through the Judges Auditions for Series 6 in 2014 before having to withdraw from the competition due to a head injury she sustained on a snowboarding trip before her application. Returning to the kitchen with a newfound focus and passion, Cecilia is confident her dish can delight the judges a second time round.

Tune in to see if Matt and Cecilia make it through the judges’ auditions and secure a place in MasterChef Australia’s Top 24.
