Where is the MasterChef kitchen filmed?

Unfortunately cooking hopefuls don’t get to spend all their time in a restaurant kitchen and spend most of the rounds in a London studio.

The MasterChef kitchen tops have been filmed in 3 Mills Studios since 2014 which is in East London.

Others shows filmed there include Million Pound Drop and Bad Girls.
