MasterChef judge Melissa Leong manages a smile as she arrives in Melbourne carrying $2700 Gucci bag

MasterChef judge Melissa Leong manages a smile as she arrives in Melbourne carrying a $2700 Gucci bag – as she continues to grieve Jock Zonfrillo’s death

She recently shared her devastation after the death of her MasterChef co-star Jock Zonfrillo. 

But Melissa Leong, 41, managed a smile as she arrived back in Melbourne after a trip to Sydney on Monday.

The culinary expert looked typically chic in a cropped brown leather jacket, high-waisted khaki trousers and sneakers as she strolled through Melbourne Airport. 

She carried her belongings in a $2700 Gucci tote bag, and wheeled her luggage in a bright green suitcase. 

For accessories, the style maven wore drop earrings, an array of bejewelled earrings and a pair of keyhole sunglasses. 

Melissa wore her black hair parted in the centre and accentuated her cheekbones with a swipe of pink blush. 

The sighting comes almost two months after the death of Melissa’s MasterChef co-star Jock, aged 46. 

Jock died in Melbourne on May 1, on what was supposed to be the premiere date of the latest MasterChef series, which was delayed by a week following his passing.

In May, Melissa explained the grieving process is a quiet one for her, after she was criticised for not taking part in a special tribute to late co-star.

The MasterChef Australia star wrote in her column for Stellar magazine that there is no wrong way to grieve.

‘We all deal with loss differently, and we need to honour that,’ the 41-year-old said.

‘Some people need to talk in order to process emotions, while other take more time to find the words, if they can at all,’ she continued.

‘Some people need to be with people, while others need time alone to stare at a wall, clean incessantly or sleep.’

Meanwhile, rumours are swirling that Melissa and her fellow judge Andy Allen could be planning to quit the show as they continue to grapple with the tragic death of their co-star.

Some fans are convinced the entire hosting panel may be replaced altogether, after Channel 10 refused to confirm Jock’s replacement in a recent casting call for contestants next season. 

‘Has anyone ever thought, ‘What if Mel and Andy decide not to continue being judges next season?” one Facebook user recently wrote on a MasterChef fan page. 

‘That crossed my mind too,’ another user wrote.
