"What a gorgeous man, always happiest in his kilt. This is the fly plaid (tartan over his shoulder) that I chose to wear to Jock’s funeral, the last one he wore," she wrote.

"Missing his smile and energy so much," Andy Allen replied.

Gordon Ramsay commented with a series of love heart emojis.


"I feel like now MasterChef 2023 is over, the real grieving for him has begun," one fan commented. "I didn’t know him personally, only through TV but when I heard the news, I wept. And now I’m doing it again. MasterChef kept him with us that little bit longer but now it’s really the end. The world is going to miss you Jock, but you’ll never be truly gone. We’ll always remember you. Give it up for Jock"

"MasterChef will never be the same again," another said.

"Was extremely emotional, so very moving seeing you wear his tartan on your shoulder carrying your husband's coffin," a third said. "Wishing you all the courage & strength over the years to come Loz."

"Kept it together for the whole episode... until the video right at the end," a fourth added. "I just bawled. Jock was a shining example of what it can look like when men show their emotions, are empathetic, vulnerable, supportive and inclusive. Much love to you, Jock's family as well as the Masterchef family."


"A beautiful Tartan indeed for a man gone too soon," someone else said. "What beautiful photos of Jock, Loz & I am sure he will be by your side. I think it's lovely you keep this page going. Memories last forever. Now we all need to sit down & have a 'wee dram' in honour of you Jock."

"Every time I see picture of @zonfrillo my heart hurts," one user said. "It's still so surreal."

"Not a dry eye in house on finale night or now seeing these gorgeous pics. What a beautiful man," another added.
