Gregg Wallace took to his social media to share a rare snap of his eldest son Tom Wallace as he celebrated his son’s 30th birthday. 

The broadcaster, 59, often posts about his wife Anne-Marie Sterpini, 37, and their son Sid, five, on social media and his eldest children Tom, 30, and Libby Wallace, 27, from a previous marriage, are occasionally referenced too. 

Taking to his Instagram story, Gregg shared a rare snap of his lookalike son wearing a beige T-shirt and sporting a pair of dark sunglasses as he soaked up some rays.

The MasterChef presenter simply captioned the snap with: ‘Tom Wallace.’

It comes just two months after Tom celebrated his birthday in March and Gregg marked the special occasion at the time by writing a sweet post to his son on the social media platform.

He captioned the snap with: ‘Happy 30th Birthday Tom Wallace. Very proud of you.’

Gregg has previously shared several snaps of Tom, who is the eldest of his two children from his marriage to his late ex-wife Denise, with his followers. 

One snap showed the father and son posing beside each other as they spent some quality time together at Twickenham Stadium back in 2022. 

Gregg has regularly spoken about his family during interviews as well and discussed his eldest kids being older siblings to his son Sid.

Speaking to The Mirror earlier this year, Gregg said that Tom and Libby ‘adore’ their younger brother. 

He added that they have ‘melded’ into the family, which includes Sid’s mother Anne-Marie and his grandmother Rina Sterpini. 

It comes after Gregg and his wife Anna welcomed their son Sid and shared that he had been diagnosed with autism almost two years ago. 

Speaking about his wife with The Sun, Gregg said: ‘She’s got an autistic little boy, she’s just lost her dad, she’s got grown-up stepchildren and a workaholic husband. That girl is an absolute pillar of strength and I have nothing but admiration for her.’

It comes after MasterChef viewers were left devastated after their true ‘winner’ was sent home at the final hurdle. 

Tuesday’s episode saw Abi Kempley, Brin Pirathapan, Chris Willoughby and Louise Lyons Macleod battle it out for a coveted place in this year’s final three.

After a tense task cooking for guests of Michel Roux Jr at his now-closed restaurant Le Gavroche, the chefs whipped up a meal back at the MasterChef UK kitchen to impress judges John Torode and Gregg.  

But as Brin, 29, and Chris, 44, impressed with their skilful dishes, it was either Louise, also 44, or Abi, 22, who was set to miss out on a spot in the final three. 

Judge John announced that it was Abi who would be leaving the competition, sparking upset from viewers who had been willing her to win. 

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, they wrote: ‘Fallen at the final hurdle. Really thought it was hers to take,’;

‘This woman should be in the final,’; ‘Gutted for Abi – you’re a winner in my eyes!!’;

‘Gutted Abbie went. Brin to win,’; ‘I really like Brin and Chris but Abi is incredible for her age,’;

‘Abi should be proud at how far she has come. To be only in her early twenties and getting to finals week on #Masterchefuk is an amazing achievement. I reckon she’ll be a big chef in the future.’

Brim and Chris were revealed to have impressed the judges and earned a spot in the final, leaving Abi and Louise at risk. 

Announcing Abi’s departure, John said: ‘Abi and Louise, one of you is going through to the final, one of you is leaving us. 

‘The contestant leaving us… is Abi. Abi than you its been an incredible journey for you.’

‘I would really really like to see what happens with you next because you are an amazing talent for somebody so young,’ Gregg said. ‘Well done.’

Of missing out on a place in the final, Abi said: ‘Obviously a little gutting to be going home at this stage, so close but the whole competition has been a challenge from start to finish.

‘I’m definitely really proud of what I’ve achieved.’

Tuesday’s episode saw the contestants cook up a storm in the legendary restaurant Le Gavroche.

Ahead of her departure from the show, Abi served up the starter – which Michel Roux Jr’s guests hailed ‘delicious’ – poached scallop mousse on a julienne of vegetables and diced scallop, served with a Chartreuse liqueur veloute and a scallop coral tuile. 

But one dish raised eyebrows – circus performer Chris’s poached and roasted spiced duck breast served with crispy duck leg. 

Viewers flocked to social media with cries that the duck looked too raw, with some suggesting his competitor vet surgeon Brin could ‘get it up and walking’.

They wrote: ‘I don’t think that duck’s even dead,’; That duck is f***ing RAW,’;

Of missing out on a place in the final, Abi said: 'Obviously a little gutting to be going home at this stage, so close but the whole competition has been challenge from start to finish'

‘Brin could get that duck up and walking again if he was serving this course,’; 

‘I love Chris’s creativity, but WHY do all professional chefs insist on meat being so rare?’

And it wasn’t the only dish of the day to be met with criticism for its cooking time, as later in the show back at the test kitchen Brim served up a South American-inspired dish dedicated to his fiancé Anna – which consisted of pan-fried fillet of beef coated in Colombian coffee.

Viewers said: ‘That beef is too pink! Needs to be cooked more!’; ‘That steak is still mooing 

‘Someone call a vet. The beef’s still breathing…..’
