MasterChef is a competitive cooking show television format created by Franc Roddam, which originated with the UK version in July 1990. The format was revived and updated for the BBC in February 2005 by executive producers Roddam and John Silver and series producer Karen Ross. In 2009, the format was re-developed in Australia where it was transformed into the current iteration of the programme. This gave the programme a new dynamic.
