Who are the Masterchef: The Professionals contestants?

We expect there to be a real mix of levels competing on MasterChef: The Professionals 2021, and each week we'll learn a little more about each chef's culinary backgrounds and where they come from.

MasterChef used to list where each contestant was from, but recently have only given viewers the chefs' names. 

The line-up of 32 chefs ranges vastly in skills and backgrounds, from development chefs to armed force caterers.

One chef we know to be competing is Liam Rogers.

The 23-year-old is a sous chef at Nottingham's two Michelin-starred Restaurant Sat Bains.

Liam previously worked at two Michelin-starred Restaurant Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles in Scotland.

Another known contestant is Aaron Middleton.

Aaron, 27, is from Winslow.

Leaving school at 16, he got an apprenticeship under chef Steven Bulmer at Brook Hall Cookery School in Winslow.

From the age of 17, Aaron started working under Raymond Blanc and Gary Jones in the kitchens of the two Michelin-starred Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons, where he rose to become part of the senior team.

Today, he works and travels as a chef to a private household.

The rest of the line-up will be revealed when the show begins.
