MasterChef fan favorite Julie Goodwin has announced her new ambassador role after her stint on the cooking show.

The cause is no doubt important for Julie, who has been open about her battle with mental health in the past.

‘I’m thrilled to announce I am an ambassador for Beyond Blue’s first signature fundraising event, Big Blue Table,’ Julie wrote on Instagram.

‘Big Blue Table brings together two of my favorite things – cooking for friends and family and sharing meals and conversation at the table!’

‘Along with the mental health benefits of getting a group together over a meal, all funds raised during Big Blue Table go to Beyond Blue’s 24/7 Support Service.’

Big Blue Table encourages supporters to enjoy a meal with one another to help raise funds and awareness for mental health.  In July, Julie was eliminated from Fans VS Faves in a shock elimination

‘Couldn’t get a better person than you Julie Goodwin,’ one follower wrote.

Another added: ‘Sounds fabulous and you will be an amazing ambassador Julie.’

In July, Julie was eliminated from Fans VS Faves in a shock elimination.

The returning winner was sent home after her sticky date pudding, ice-cream and whiskey caramel sauce fell short during an elimination challenge in Tasmania.

She was soon dubbed a ‘national treasure’ by fans, after first winning the show back in 2009.

In June, Julie told Woman’s Day that she consulted her psychologist before agreeing to join MasterChef: Fans V Faves this year.

Julie has been open about her battle with anxiety and depression following her drink-driving arrest four years ago.

‘[My mental health] was a massive discussion when I was asked to do [MasterChef],’ the cookbook author explained.

‘I didn’t just say yes. I talked to my family, I talked to my psychologist, and it was a decision that was made in a very considered way because at the end of the day, I didn’t want to be back at the bottom of a dark place,’ she continued.

The mother of three, who spent five weeks at a mental health facility in 2020, worked out a coping strategy in case things became too mentally taxing.

‘They’ve worked around the filming schedule to allow me to still have my psychology appointments and to get out early in the morning to do my exercise. They touch base with me constantly to make sure I’m okay,’ she said.

If you or anyone you know is struggling with their mental health, please contact Lifeline or Beyond Blue.
