In a lighthearted exchange, Torode, 58, humorously dismissed the idea of passing the torch to new judges, emphasizing the irreplaceable chemistry he shares with Wallace. “Who would we leave it to? Don’t be ridiculous,” he quipped, highlighting their unique dynamic and undeniable charm. Wallace, 57, echoed this sentiment, emphasizing their strong professional rapport built on mutual trust and respect over the years.

While acknowledging the possibility of eventually stepping down, Torode hinted at a reluctant exit strategy, suggesting that only extreme measures, like blending his food to render it inedible, would prompt his departure.
