Fashion designer Collette Dinnigan reveals she ‘said no’ to Celebrity MasterChef multiple times – and explains why she finally gave in


Collette Dinnigan has revealed what finally motivated her to appear on Celebrity MasterChef. 

The designer, 55, who often posts her food creations on social media, will star on the new season after relocating from Italy back to Australia. 

‘I actually said no a few times before I said yes. I have been told I am a good cook and I love cooking for friends and family,’ she told The Sydney Morning Herald’s Sunday Magazine.

‘My passion is food and when I gave it further thought, I figured I had nothing to lose. So I decided to put myself out of my comfort zone and go for it,’ she added. 

‘As you get older, you don’t put yourself out there, you become more discreet about decisions and don’t take as many risks. I decided to change it up.’ 

Collette, who now lives in Bowral in the NSW Southern Highlands, says she will be using her experiences at Paris fashion week to help her cope under pressure.

‘Paris taught me there’s no blame game, you just work in the moment, and that it’s not the end of the world if things don’t go to plan,’ she said.    

Channel Ten unveiled the full line-up for the cooking show in June. 

The contestants include Gordon Ramsay’s daughter Tilly, Gold Logie winner Rebecca Gibney, and Offspring actor Matthew Le Nevez.
