Manu Feildel returns to My Kitchen Rules in 2002 as a judge.

But the chief admits he is “sad” to no longer work with controversially ousted co-star, Pete Evans, 48.

The 47-year-old told The Daily Telegraph on Saturday: “I’m a little sad I guess. Pete and I are good friends and nothing has changed.

“We’ve been working together for a long time and I love him. It’s not my choice that he doesn’t sit next to me.’

Manu went on to say he doesn’t know who will star on the show next to him, but there are some big names in the mix.

‘I don’t know who’s coming with me yet. There have been a number of international names in circulation,” he said.

In May 2020, it was announced that Pete had retired from Channel Seven after 10 years as a judge on MKR alongside Manu.

The decision to release Pete from his $800,000 contract was reportedly a cost-cutting measure, according to The Australian.

As the coronavirus recession hits the TV industry, Seven has dropped its most expensive assets and Pete has been dubbed “the lowest hanging fruit.”

The former restaurateur, who believes Covid is a scam and vaccines are harmful, lost dozens of sponsorships last year after sharing neo-Nazi content on Facebook.

“We've been working together for a long time and I love him.  The fact that he won't sit next to me is not my choice,

Pete was kicked off Facebook in December last year for sharing misinformation.

He was also fined heavily by the Australian medical watchdog for allegedly unlawful advertising of therapeutic goods.

In April 2020, the controversial chef was fined $25,000 for trying to sell his so-called BioCharger on Facebook for $15,000 a pop.

In May 2021, he was fined another $79,920 for advertising the BioCharger and several other unapproved and totally ineffective treatments.

During Channel Seven’s Upfront presentation in October 2022, the most shocking announcement was that MKR would be revived – but with one big difference.

The show will have “all new judges,” according to Seven, but it has now been confirmed that Manu will return.

The cooking show was previously hosted by Evans, Feildel and Colin Fassnidge.

MKR was once a rating juggernaut for Seven, but its popularity has waned in recent years as viewers flocked to Channel Nine’s Married At First Sight instead.
