‘MasterChef Australia’ Host Jock Zonfrillo Dies At Age 46

“MasterChef Australia” host Jock Zonfrillo has died at age 46.

The award-winning chef’s tragic death was revealed by Australian television network Network 10 on the same day the latest season of “MasterChef” was due to air.

Zonfrillo — from Glasgow, Scotland — was found dead at a house in Melbourne in the early hours of Monday morning, the BBC reported. His death isn’t being treated as suspicious, according to Victoria Police.

The star’s family said in a statement: “For those who crossed his path, became his mate, or were lucky enough to be his family, keep this proud Scot in your hearts when you have your next whisky,” adding their hearts were “shattered.”

Zonfrillo is survived by his wife, Lauren Fried, and his four children.

Tributes have been pouring in since the news was announced, with chefs Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsay being among those to share emotional messages.
