MasterChef Australia fan favourite Anna Polyviou sent fans wild when she returned to the popular cookery show.

The beloved pastry chef appeared on the show in an episode earlier this week as she shook up the competition with a very difficult challenge.

Famous for her inventive desserts, Anna tasked one aspiring chef with creating a unique ‘sunny side up’ dessert as part of the infamous pressure test.

Recognisable for her trademark pink mohawk, Anna made a guest appearance alongside judges Sofia Levin, Poh Ling Yeow, Andy Allen and Jean-Christophe Novelli.

Fans were sent completely wild when she returned to the Channel 10 cookery competition, and took to social media to share their excitement.

The pressure tests challenge the contestants’ abilities to work under extreme pressure and see them tasked with creating dishes under short time constraints. 

Anna is a familiar face on the culinary scene and even won 2016 Pastry Chef of the Year by Gault&Millau for her unique and masterful creations. 

Elsewhere, new MasterChef judge Sofia Levin has impressed the cast and crew of the hit cooking competition show.

A source has told how she has ‘real’ on-screen ‘chemistry’ with Andy, 36, and the pair have become good friends since appearing on the show together.

‘You can see they have real chemistry, and casting has a lot to do with making these judges pop on camera,’ they told Woman’s Day. 

‘The long days were hard but Sofia made everything fun for cast and crew.’

Andy, who is married to Alex Davey, won the fourth season of MasterChef Australia in 2012 and made his debut on the judging panel in 2020.

The three new judges have replaced the outgoing Melissa Leong and Jock Zonfrillo, who tragically died in April last year.
