MKR judge tipped for shock career move
My Kitchen Rules judge Manu Feildel could be headed for a surprise career change, with reports claiming he is in line for a different TV gig.
The fan favourite, who co-hosts alongside Pete Evans on the Channel 7 cooking show, is tipped to take over as a judge on popular talent show, Australia's Got Talent, according to The Herald Sun's Gossip Queen column.
While the 45-year-old is widely well known as a renowned chef, it might surprise fans to know Feildel trained in circus arts for three years before going down the path of cooking.
The reboot of Australia's Got Talent, which is also on Channel 7, goes into planning mode next month, with dates firmed up for judges' auditions.
The show will film the Sydney auditions from May 11-14 and will then head to Melbourne to film on May 22-23.
Feildel is still expected to star on MKR in 2020.
Feildel is no stranger to TV. He has starred on Ready Steady Cook, MasterChef Australia, and of course, My Kitchen Rules, for which he has been the main co-host since 2010.
He had his own show in 2014, a two-part cooking doco called My France with Manu, and was also a contestant on Dancing with the Stars in 2011, which he won.
But his appearances don't end there. Feildel made his big screen cameo in the 2018 movie The BBQ as French chef, Andre Mont Blanc.
It comes after he made headlines when he fired up over the amount of money that was raised to rebuild the Notre Dame cathedral.
Alongside this image, he posted another bleak, black and white image of children starving in Africa. It attracted more than 10,000 likes.
In this picture he posted, he wrote a caption saying: "This is incredibly disturbing!!! The world is f***ed!!!
Others who saw the post praised him for putting the whole fire catastrophe in perspective.
Former MKR contestant Ash Pollard wrote: "Mmmm. That is f***ed."
Australian singer Tina Arena, who has lived in France, wrote: "Couldn't have said it better myself!"
