What time is MasterChef: The Professionals on BBC Two, are Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti hosting and who is in the line-up?

IT is out of the fridge and the freezer and into the frying pan for a batch of brand new cooks as Masterchef: The Professionals continues.

Here's what we know about the new series of the tough TV competition, which separates the sous chefs from the boys…

When does Masterchef: The Professionals begin on BBC2?

The second episode of the new series airs tonight, Wednesday November 8, at 8pm on BBC2.

It's an hour long and is followed by The Big Life Fix with Simon Reeve.

There will be 21 episodes in total as the prestigious cooking contest celebrates its 10th birthday.

Over the course of the show, the original group of 48 hopefuls gets whittled down through various gruelling stages until one talented foodie rules them all.

Last year, Glaswegian chef Gary Maclean won the series though some viewers complained there weren't enough women competitors.

Who is judging and hosting Masterchef: The Professionals?

Once again, former greengrocer and pudding-loving TV icon Gregg Wallace will be taking charge of the Bafta-winning series.

With him will be the somewhat more authoritative cooking minds of chefs-turned-restaurateurs Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti.

Double Michelin-starred chef Marcus has acquired a whole new wave of fans since joining the show in 2014 beyond those earned with his genius in the kitchen.

The one-time protege of Gordon Ramsay now has three swanky London restaurants: Marcus at The Berkeley, The Gilbert Scott at the St Pancras Hotel and Tredwells.

Monica has crafted a glittering culinary career and a burgeoning sideline as a TV presenter, appearing alongside Giles Coren in Amazing Hotels on the BBC earlier this year.

The Samoan-born New Zealander chef was the first woman to land a senior role in Michel Roux Jr's two-star restuaurant Le Gabroche, and now has her own eatery – Mere, in Fitzrovia.

Doing the mouth-watering voiceover will be the actor Sean Pertwee.

What does Masterchef: The Professionals involve?

In the first round the professionals are first put through a Skills Test to examine whether they have the know-how required to pass through.

And this time around the poor chefs have to create and cook a meal from scratch in just 20 minutes.

Luckily they then get a breather in the Signature Dish round when then cook their best food in 1h 15min.

Three chefs then go through while three go home – before the contest gets even tougher.
