The future of reality TV won't be looking too abnormal after all, with the return of one of TV's most popular cooking shows.

'Masterchef Australia' has returned to TV screens this week, and gives us a look at how social-distancing measures look on a reality series. The cookery show's 12th season was mid-production earlier this year when social-distancing measures kicked into place - and the show continued to film.

Navigating the new way TV show's will have to adapt going forward (for the moment at least), the safety measures see the contestants and celebrity chefs Andy Allen, Melissa Leong, and Jock Zonfrillo standing at least two metres apart from each-other while cooking up a storm and tasting dishes in the kitchen.

Take a look at the social distancing measures in place in the current season of 'Masterchef Australia' below, which will implement these new riles for the remainder of season 12.

Talk about added stress, the contestants seem to have adapted to the process quite quickly. With the exception perhaps of when it came to giving each-other hugs for their good efforts.

The above implementations will no doubt bode well for those concerned their favourite reality TV shows might not be returning later this year. One in particular, Channel 4's 'The Great British Bake Off', might well return this autumn as scheduled. The new series will see comedian Matt Lucas take over from Sandi Toksvig, who hosted with Noel Fielding for three series of the revamped BBC show.
