Who is Eddie Scott?
After winning the show, the 30-year-old marine pilot said: “It’s everything. My whole life I feel has been building up to this moment.
“I can’t believe I’m standing here as the MasterChef champion.
“It’s just been the most stressful and the most enjoyable! I feel like I’ve just discovered who I am as cook. It’s the best feeling ever.”
MasterChef judge John Torode said: “Eddie is nothing short of a culinary powerhouse.
“His love of classic French food blended with the spices of India, has made us really stand up and take notice.
“He’s daring, he’s adventurous, he doesn’t play it safe.”
Fellow judge Gregg Wallace added: “I think we’ve just seen the birth of a future great chef.
“Eddie impressed from the moment he set foot in this kitchen. He’s hardly put a foot wrong throughout the competition.”
Yes – the Masterchef contestant posts frequently on Instagram.
His Instagram bio says ‘All things food. Real food’ – and that is exactly what you can find on his social media profile.
The winner posts a range of food snaps, videos and selfies – all with detailed captions explaining the ingredients he used.
He also uses the highlights feature to share videos providing step-by-step instructions on how to cook some of his favourite meals.
His profile also includes a few snaps of himself and his fellow contestants.
Unlike some of the other contestants, Eddie does not appear to have a Facebook profile or a Twitter account.
However, he does appear to have a TikTok account, which former contestant Rish Nanavati follows and leaves comments on.
