Woman's Day magazine has named the top five MasterChef contestants, a week before it was meant to be broadcast on television.
A two-page spread in the magazine, which came out yesterday, featured the five remaining contestants under the headline "MasterChef Top 5: Love Secrets and Scandals".
There are eight contestants left on the Channel Ten show, after Leederville labourer Wade Drummond was eliminated last night, and the top five was not meant to be revealed until Sunday.
The remaining contestants are Beau Cook, Julia Taylor, Audra Morrice, Kylie Millar, Mindy Woods, Ben Milbourne, Alice Zaslavasky and Andy Allen. Another contestant will be eliminated tonight.
"Unfortunately Woman's Day made a mistake and announced the top five MasterChef contestants one week early," Ten's head of publicity Jo'an Papadopoulos told The Daily Telegraph.
"We are extremely disappointed for our fans that this error occurred. However when and how the contestants are eliminated is still to be revealed and we are confident viewers will be enthralled with these episodes."
Calls and emails to Woman's Day were not returned this morning.
