TVB actor Chris Lai (黎诺懿) recently shot a new travel show called “Men’s Kitchen” (懿想得到) in Malaysia together with celebrity guest Jacqueline Wong (黃心穎). But due to Wong’s viral scandal with Andy Hui (許志安), the episode featuring Wong is hugely affected.
Now, it has been confirmed that Lai’s good friend Mat Yeung (杨明) will be replacing Wong and the whole episode will be reshot in Malaysia. Wong’s scenes in the show will be completely removed.

“Matt and I know each other for 16 years after filming “Ten Brothers” drama together. We also hosted tour show before. Let’s see if we can establish any new rapport this time. We believe re-shooting is the best solution especially considering Malaysia’s position,” Lai said as quoted by Asian E News.
Lai revealed that the trip to Malaysia will last around 5 days and half of the expenses will be sponsored by Tourism Malaysia.
Since her image has been tarnished, removing Wong’s scenes from the travel show is inevitable because not removing her may affect the rating of the show.
In mid April, Lai has been criticised by netizens for posting a poster and a promotional video clip of him and Wong for the show. The video has since been deleted, but the poster still remained on Lai’s Instagram.
“Men’s Kitchen” is a 10-episode Cantonese series of 30-minute each which will be filmed at different locations in Malaysia. Some of the locations include Penang, Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur.
