The one actual change to the MasterChef filming was that me, Marcus [Wareing] and Monica [Galetti] used to huddle across the plate, elbowing one another out of the best way for the choicest bit and now, clearly, the chef brings the dish up and we take our personal bits off there with clear cutlery.
