Normally four chefs compete in an episode, but when the show opened a statement read: “This programme has been edited and features 3 of the original 4 contestants who took part.”
Viewers thinks the edited-out contestant is a man.

What has the reaction been?
Many have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, with some Tweets gaining thousands of reactions.
One senior journalist at the BBC Tweeted: “I don’t even watch MasterChef: The Professionals but this happened last night and I need to know the backstory which seems to be shrouded in secrecy.”
Tom Hourigan then replied to his Tweet with: “This was the first thing I asked my TV producer girlfriend about this morning.
“Her response: ‘Well it must have been something big’
“THE PLOT THICKENS”
Others are posting theories (which haven’t been confirmed or verified) – one account claims to know a camerawoman on the show who said the edited-out contestant swore at Marcus Wareing.
Someone else theorised the reason was “crime related”.
Despite all the social media investigation taking place, no one can confirm why a contestant was removed from the show.
