The cooking competition is introducing Sydney chef Kylie Kwong as a regular guest mentor for its sixth season, joining the familiar faces of Matt Preston, George Calombaris and Gary Mehigan.

It will run on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights at 7.30pm.

Also returning to the television screen is Seven’s renovation competition, House Rules.

Wednesday April 30 is the return date for the program which ended its first season last year with 1.873m viewers for the winner announcement segment.

Another series of Nine’s The Block is also due later this year. But first, a new season of The Voice is set to explode onto screens with Aussie songbird Kylie Minogue one of the internationally renowned judges onboard.

Competition between the three reality pundits will be fierce.

MasterChef Australia’s season finale pulled in 1.06 million people last year, down from the 2.19 million who watched the winner announcement the year before.

The Voice finale reached 2.3 million people last year as Harrison Craig was announced as the second Voice of Australia.
