She survived a double elimination and made it through to the grand final during Monday night’s episode, but Tilly Ramsay has made no mention of her Celebrity MasterChef Australia success on social media.

Fans have noticed that the 20-year-old has only posted about the reality show twice on her Instagram: once in June when the cast was announced, and again in July after filming wrapped.

“Best couple weeks with even better people. I had an absolute blast and have made some friends for life,” she captioned a gallery of photos of the contestants out in Melbourne, adding that the show was “the most incredible and challenging experience”.

Tilly, who is the daughter of renowned chef Gordon Ramsay, has instead been posting about her time on another reality TV competition in the UK, Strictly Come Dancing.

She’s currently one of the top seven celebrities remaining on the dancing series, which premiered in September and is expected to run for five more weeks.

So far, the social media star has shared 19 posts about her time on the show, including videos of her performances and photos with her dance partner, Nikita Kuzmin.

Meanwhile, Tilly has impressed the MasterChef judges week after week with her restaurant-quality dishes.

Most recently she made a spinach and egg yolk ravioli, which the judges said was a great concept and an even better execution.

She’s now set to compete in the grand finale alongside footballer Nick Riewoldt and fashion designer Collette Dinnigan for the title of Celebrity MasterChef Australia and $100,000 for their chosen charity.


Despite not posting about her own journey on the show, Tilly has been active on social media commenting on her MasterChef co-stars posts.

“Love you so much,” she wrote on Rebecca Gibney’s recent Instagram gallery, to which Rebecca replied: “Miss you blossom.”

Tilly’s top three placement comes shortly after she was body-shamed by British radio host Steve Allen, who called her a “chubby little thing”.

She responded with a statement on Instagram that read: “I try not to read and listen to comments and negativity, however recently being called out on a national radio station by a 67-year-old man is a step too far. Steve, please feel free to voice your opinions however I draw the line at commenting on my appearance. It’s such a shame that someone is trying to make such a positive experience negative.”

She added: “This isn’t the first and definitely won’t be the last comment made about my appearance and I accept that and I’m learning to accept myself. But please remember that words can hurt and at the end of the day I am only 19 and I’m so grateful for all the amazing opportunities I have been able to take part in.

“I understand that being in the public eye obviously comes with its own repercussions and I’ve been aware of this from a young age. However, I won’t tolerate people that think it’s okay to publicly comment and scrutinise anyone’s weight and appearance. Love Tilly xx.”
