Nine’s MasterChef wannabe announced

NineBest known for co-hosting Sale of the Century, Jo Silvagni is making a return to national television as the host of the Nine Network’s answer to MasterChef Australia, The Great Aussie Cook Off.

Silvagni – formerly Bailey – will join comedian Vince Sorrenti to host the eight-part family-friendly program, which will air from October 11.

The former model, who came to notice as the youngest ever co-host on quiz show Sale of the Century, most recently appeared on Melbourne Weekender.

But the mother of three said she was looking forward to getting back in the limelight.

“I’ve been doing a lot of Victorian things so it’s nice to be out and doing national things again,” Silvagni told AAP.

“Working with families, and not just adult family members but kids as well, (and) travelling around Australia just sounded like the complete package for me.”

Each episode of the new program will feature two families who are required to cook a three-course meal in 30 minutes using some mandatory ingredients and some of their own flavours.

Food experts, who will change each week, will judge the creations.

Filming started in the NSW town of Mudgee on Saturday, while another episode will be shot on the Sydney Harbour foreshore on Sunday.
