All of the judges were replaced for the eighth series, and the judge panel is now comprised of Kelly Osbourne, Ian “Dicko” Dickson, Sophie Monk and Eddie Perfect.

Ratings, current series and renewal prospects
The series`s overall average is 1.339 million viewers per episode, excluding the current run. The eighth series` premiere has drawn 785,000 viewers, approximately a half of what My Kitchen Rules had drawn that same night for its debut. The second and third episodes slipped to 736,000 and 683,000 respectively.
