Narrator India Fisher was featured on-screen for the first time on Tuesday

MasterChef fans were left stunned to learn the identity of the iconic narrator behind the long-running BBC show.

India Fisher made an appearance on Tuesday's show in front of the cameras for the 20th anniversary of the cooking programme as it was celebrated with a special banquet.

The episode featured a host of MasterChef VIPs, including past winners and Michelin star chefs.

"I vowed I wouldn’t do this, but I’ll read the menu out loud," narrator Fisher joked before stating the upcoming dishes in her signature tone.

"Sounds delicious!" she went on to add and fans didn't waste any time in expressing their delight about finally putting a face to the well-known voice.

"Watching #Masterchef hits different now I know I’m finally meeting India Fisher," one fan wrote on X.

"Glad the #Masterchef voiceover got invited to the semi-final 20th anniversary meal. Odd to see her face. Had to rewind when I heard her reading the menu and was like hold on a minute I know that voice," another admitted.

"India's voice over vs real life is like me on the phone where it’s like Mary Poppins vs Danny Dyer #MasterChef #MasterChefUK," someone else quipped.
