Celebrity MasterChef is already proving it will be one of television’s most wholesome shows, and it hasn’t even aired yet.

The star-studded cast is in the thick of filming, and it appears Matilda (Tilly) Ramsay, who is celebrity chef Gordon and Tana Ramsay’s daughter, has stolen the hearts of her peers.

The 19-year-old may be far away from home, but she has wonderfully found a foster mum in Rebecca Gibney.

The actor made her feelings towards Tilly clear when she took to her Instagram to share a gushing message about the television presenter.

Rebecca shared a selfie of both ladies looking at ease next to each other as they stood close together for the sweet moment.

In the caption accompanying the picture, the former Packed To The Rafters star revealed to her fans that Tilly is like the daughter she never had.

Rebecca, who is married to Richard Bell, has a 17-year-old son called Zachary, but if she was ever curious about what her daughter would be like, it appears she has found her answer.

“This girl 🙌🏻😍If I had a daughter I’d want her to be just like @tillyramsay . All class, all heart and an utter ray of sunshine,” she wrote.

Clearly in awe of the young girl Rebecca dedicated the rest of her post to her parents.

“You did good @tanaramsay and @gordongram . A stunning human inside and out. 👌🤩💕,” she finished.

Tilly proved she is as much of a darling as Rebecca says by commenting a message filled with high praise for the actor.

“You are just the best ❤️❤️,” she said.

This isn’t the only friendship Tilly has struck on the set of Celebrity MasterChef.

Last week Olympian Ian Thorpe penned a loving message dedicated to her after noticing she was having a tough time being far away from her London home.

“When you have the pleasure of giving a delightful young person from the other side of the world a hug and a kiss just to make them feel better,” the 38-year-old wrote alongside a touching snap of their pair sharing a warm embrace.

Clearly feeling the love Tilly commented on the post, “You are the best ❤️❤️.”

Ian cutely replied, “@tillyramsay NO, you are! ❤️”

“When you find a new friend.”

Rebecca had commented on Ian’s post, which hinted at her blossoming friendship with Tilly.

She wrote, “When you find a new friend, you love @tillyramsay and @ian.thorpe ❤️.”

It is exciting to find out how Ian, Rebecca and Tilly’s friendship plays out on national TV.
