Masterchef HQ is actually John and Gregg’s house.
Gregg’s now famous line “Cooking doesn’t get tougher than this!” was originally uttered by Gregg in response to a joint of beef that John had cooked for lunch that day.
Gregg receives no payment for his role in Masterchef. He is, however, allowed to finish off all the puddings at the end of each episode.
Gregg does all the washing up after each episode. John lets him know if he’s missed anything.
John and Gregg are meticulous in being fair: each of them gets a vote to decide the fate of each contestant. If there is a tie, however, John gets the casting vote.
Gregg’s the bakers is owned by Gregg Wallace.
