Gethin said he was ‘gutted’ that he had to leave the show but would not put anyone else’s health at risk.

Co-presenter Gregg Wallace said during Thursday night’s episode: “Gethin is not joining us. He is unwell. And I’m sure, like us, you wish him all the best and a very speedy recovery.”

Gethin Jones was alongside other stars like Sir Matthew Pinsent, Sam Quek, Judi Love, Amar Latif, Phil Daniels, and Riyadh Khalaf, who all hoped to make it to the final three.

Though the final three saw Sir Matthew Pinsent, Sam Quek, and Riyadh Khalaf against each other in an exciting final.

Celebrity Masterchef was won by YouTuber and presenter Riyadh Khalaf who succeeded in the competition by continuing to wow the judges with his dishes.

Gethin took to Twitter as the show started to explain why he was no longer participating.

He wrote in his tweet: “Thank you for all your lovely messages re @MasterChefUK.”

“I had symptoms of Covid-19 the morning of the next stage. Absolutely GUTTED… but it was the easiest decision.” – Gethin added.

He ended his tweet with: “Would never put anyone at risk. Enjoy the next hour – these guys can cook!!!” –

So considerate of him to actually stay off the show once he got symptoms, there are too many people out there who know they have the symptoms but still carry on interacting with others and working like they’re not going to infect anyone else, so well done
