MasterChef fans left in disbelief as voiceover star’s identity finally revealed on 20th anniversary show

BBC MasterChef enthusiasts were left gobsmacked as the voice behind the iconic cooking show was unveiled during a special episode celebrating its 20th anniversary. The semi-final episode was a star-studded affair, featuring a line up of past judges, winners, and Michelin-starred chefs, where the final eight contestants whipped up a three-course meal inspired by previous champions for an impressive 70 guests.

The excitement levels peaked when judge John Torode swapped his usual attire for chef whites to lead the kitchen as the executive head chef for the night. However, the real surprise came when India Fisher, the voice that has guided viewers through countless culinary journeys, stepped in front of the camera.

In a rare on-screen appearance, the beloved narrator said: “I vowed I wouldn’t do this, but I’ll read the menu out loud.”

Fans were over the moon and quickly took to social media to share their excitement about finally putting a face to the voice. One fan even posted a snapshot of Fisher, captioning it with sheer excitement: “OMG. Actual India Fisher. #MasterChef.”

And another viewer expressed their delight: “Glad the #MasterChef voiceover got invited to the semi-final 20th anniversary meal. Odd to see her face. Had to rewind when I heard her reading the menu and was like, hold on a minute I know that voice.”

Despite the high stakes, the anniversary banquet went off almost without a hitch, save for a minor mishap with the ice cream machine. The guests were so wowed by the culinary delights that they gave the aspiring chefs a standing ovation.

Gregg Wallace couldn’t help but praise the contestants, saying it was “one of the best events that I can remember and the ambition of the food from eight amateurs is just extraordinary.” John was in agreement, describing the eight finalists as “absolutely magical”. However, the competition must go on, and sadly Tom and Cliodhna found themselves on the chopping block.

The tension will continue to rise in the upcoming semi-final episode.
