The pair have fronted MasterChef together for 18 years, and always appear to be the closest of pals on television.
However, just like any friendship, there are occasionally cracks that appear in the foundation.
In a new interview, John recalled a moment of friction between the pair.
He revealed that Gregg has some habits that rub him the wrong way, and during one incident he couldn’t hide his feelings.
John Torode on friction with Celebrity MasterChef co-star
“We know each other so well. But that’s not to say we don’t have our moments. With Gregg, my issue is the 6am phone calls,” John told The Times.
“Last time it happened I wasn’t very happy and I said: ‘Gregg, mate, it’s 6am.’ And he said: ‘But you’re on my list!’ That’s the thing with Gregg, he gets up very early and his whole life is diarised and run on lists.”
John then recalled sensing a “disturbance in the force” when he next bumped into his co-star.
As a result, after pushing Gregg to share what was wrong, the chef admitted that he had been unhappy with how John has spoken to him over the phone.
“We talked it out. We are honest with each other. In the end, you have to learn to accept each other’s foibles. Gregg is incredibly organised. You have to allow the relationship to grow.”
Meanwhile, earlier this year Masterchef was crowned the UK’s most popular reality show.
