She certainly made her mark in the MasterChef kitchen last night, commanding the floor and making all the contestants laugh out loud with her one-liners. 

And now, chef Reece Hignell has revealed exactly what Katy Perry was actually like during the filming of the show.

The Hot N Cold singer liked Reece’s rum baba with smoked honey creme so much that she fashioned a bra out of a napkin, held it up and called his dish ‘the tits’, which left the whole room in fits of laughter. 

Reece, who was undeniably the most excited contestant out of the bunch to meet the superstar, told news.com.au that Katy didn’t leave the floor once during the filming and was “on” the whole time. 

“She spent the whole time walking around trolling us, but it was the most endearing thing” he said.

Reece said Katy stuck around after filming so she could have a chat with all the contestants, before she headed off to do a free concert in aid of the bushfires.

He said Katy seemed shocked that they had to cook every day without a recipe and they took some photos together. 

“She was shocked that we had to come up with all of our ideas on the spot, so that was really cool that she gave us a bit of respect,” he said. 

It comes after fans were left divided over the singer’s ‘chaotic’ appearance on the reality show. 

The pregnant star had the contestants starstruck, sung her way through the episode and even called judge Jock ‘daddy’ after asking him to cut her meat for her.

“Katy Perry is too much. And not in a good way. I feel like it's great for a one off but so glad she's not a permanent judge,” one person said. 

“Why does Masterchef have Katy Perry on?? If I wanted to see none essential celebrities I'd watch TMZ. Please it's a cooking show,” another person wrote. 

Others completely disagreed, saying that she ‘stole the show’ and was ‘the best twist so far’ in a week full of curveballs for the contestants. 

It also didn’t go unnoticed that axed MasterChef contestant, Ben Ungermann, was absent from last night’s show.
