This is so sad.
MasterChef Junior alum Ben Watkins is dead at the age of 14.
At 13 Watkins was diagnosed with a soft tissue tumor and according to the family, he was one of six people in the world diagnosed with the illness called Angiomatoid Fibrous Histiocytoma.
Ben had been undergoing treatment for a rare form of cancer before his death and passed away on Monday. If you recall, Ben was a competitor on the sixth season of the show hosted by Gordon Ramsay and he was only 11 years old.
So sad to hear this horrible news. RIP Ben
We lost a Master of the @MasterChefJrFOX kitchen today. Ben you were an incredibly talented home cook and even stronger young man. Your young life had so many tough turns but you always persevered. Sending all the love to Ben Watkins’ family with this terrible loss Gx pic.twitter.com/RX81hP7lbw— Gordon Ramsay (@GordonRamsay) November 17, 2020
