John Torode has insisted he has a “solid friendship” with his ‘Masterchef’ co-host Gregg Wallace, just weeks after he said the complete opposite.

As the new series of the BBC One cooking competition kicked off last month, John revealed that when the cameras stopped rolling, the two judges went their separate ways and never hung out with each other.

But now the chef appears to have had a complete change of heart, insisting the pair are in fact, bosom buddies.

Ahead of this year’s ‘Masterchef’ final, John insisted that he had a “great, solid friendship” with Gregg.

John added that they still enjoy the occasional night out together when they’re not filming.

The pair met when Gregg supplied vegetables to London restaurant Quaglino’s, where John worked as a chef early in his career.

They later began presenting and judging ‘Masterchef’ when it was revamped by the Beeb in 2005.

‘Masterchef: The Finals’ air Monday 9pm, Wednesday 8pm, Thursday 8pm and Friday 8.30pm on BBC1.
