Insiders at Network Ten have hinted at an intriguing possibility — British celebrity chef and restaurateur, Jamie Oliver, may step into Jock’s shoes for “MasterChef Australia” 2024. The source told Woman’s Day that negotiations are reportedly underway, with the network striving to secure a substantial $2 million deal with the chef.
