"At a crossroads": Manu Feildel set to say goodbye to Channel 7

"At a crossroads": Manu Feildel set to say goodbye to Channel 7

French chef Manu Feildel's TV career with Seven could be coming to an end after the TV network axed Plate of Origin and My Kitchen Rules was "rested" after a disappointing 2020 season.

After initially signing with Channel 7 in 2010, his contract is set to expire later this month.

“I’m at a time of my life now where I’m at the crossroad,” Feildel told Nine newspapers.

 “Either TV is going to stop and I’m going to keep on going with my businesses that I’ve had or television is going to change its course. I’m at peace with whatever happens to me.”

Feildel is appearing on the latest season of SAS Australia, but has also been chatting to other production companies about future projects.

“That’s the type of TV I want to do,” he said. “There are smaller production companies not necessarily attached to a network that approached me for a few different ideas. They’re great ideas and I want to be involved with them but, again, it’s having the idea, producing it and then selling it that’s the trick.”
