MasterChef will televise its auditions for the first time when it returns to BBC1 next year for its seventh series.

The show's running time is to be extended, from half an hour to an hour, and it will be held in a bigger kitchen to accommodate a larger group of contestants.

The BBC1 controller, Jay Hunt, has ordered 15 episodes of MasterChef from production company Shine.

At the beginning of the new series, judges John Torode and Gregg Wallace will audition amateur chefs selected from the 20,000 applicants.

The best 20 will be chosen to go through to the new kitchen where they will face what the BBC says will be "more ambitious tests than ever before" ...

I like the idea of watching the contestants from the audition process onwards. I tend to get more involved when allowed plenty of time to follow participants in this type of programme.

It sounds like they are going down the more 'Australian' route. Odd, Masterchef must have begun here back in the 80's or 90's with Loyd Grossman it was popular then axed. Reborn around 5 years ago? it remains a popular show. The Aussies make a version two years ago, it smashes TV ratings and suddenly becomes a worldwide franchise.

Sorry to say I do not like this idea at all, auditioning is surely turning it into yet another 'x factor' type program, we have quite enough of those already.
I would rather it went back to the Lloyd Grossman version when there were no tantrums, no crying, no hissy fits, no biased judges being taken in by a puppy eyed blonde girl and no contestants rabbiting on about their dream and their journey.
