A brand-new season of MasterChef Junior is all about the hype, and the judging panel is all about the Ramsey family. Fox has renewed the kids' cooking competition hosted by Gordon Ramsay for a ninth season. Tilly Ramsay, Gordon's daughter, will be a new judge on the programme. Aarón Sánchez and Daphne Oz will also be back as judges. 

"MasterChef Junior returns with a fantastic new set of young chefs ready to thrive under invaluable mentorship, blending fun, fast-paced competition with Gordon's undeniable soft spot for kids," said Fox President of Unscripted Programming Allison Wallach. Additionally, Gordon's gifted daughter Tilly will be joining him on the judging panel this season. 

They are thrilled to have Tilly join the MasterChef Junior family, along with the excellent partners at Endemol Shine North America and the entire Fox team! 

Fans of MasterChef Junior may recognise Tilly from her appearances hosting several themed tasks alongside her father, Gordon, throughout the years. The 21-year-old has also written a cookbook, hosted several cooking shows in her native UK, and had appearances on Hell's Kitchen. 

According to the official description, MasterChef Junior follows children home cooks between the ages of 8 and 13 as they compete in a series of challenges to become America's next MasterChef Junior and earn a trophy and $100,000 in prize money. 

The Season 8 finale aired in June 2022, marking the show's final airing. From 2010 to 2015, Ramsay made multiple appearances on her father's TV shows, MasterChef Junior and Hell's Kitchen, before she began hosting Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch on CBBC. 

She taught home cooking with her father on Gordon Ramsay's Home Cooking in 2013. There were also occasional appearances by her mother, Tana. 

It was revealed in 2015 that Ramsay would have her own CBBC cooking and entertaining programme. Aimed at a younger audience, Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch follows the entire Ramsay family on their summer vacation.

The first series aired on April 14, 2015; the second aired on May 6, 2016; the third premiered on May 5, 2017. There are fifteen episodes in each series. 

Although Ramsay was born and raised in London, she now splits her time between Los Angeles and South West London to support her father's television career. She has always had a passion for cooking. 

On April 24, 2018, the fourth series aired. The Ramsays cooked meals and tried encouraging kids to cook in a series of "Big Chef Little Chef" cookery segments aired on the ITV show This Morning in September 2018. Ramsay also featured with her father in these parts.
