It’s been 10 years since she shot to fame on MasterChef Australia, but Poh Ling Yeow looked almost unrecognisable when she returned to the show last week in a guest mentor capacity.

The celeb chef sported a gorgeous bob hairstyle that made her look rather different, but what’s more, she’s undergone another transformation over the weekend.

The now 46-year-old has shared photos on Instagram which reveal her fresh pixie cut hairstyle.

“YES, the temptation to go shorter after going short, got to me - PRESENTING new pixie cut by my beautiful talented friend @sophbree,” Poh wrote on her social media account.

“Love the new cut!!!” MasterChef judge Matt Preston commented.

“I LOVE IT!” added comedian Madga Szubanski.

Poh has been a guest mentor on this season of the popular Channel Ten cooking show, and some fans did a double take when they saw the reality star ditch her familiar long locks.

“Wow Poh looks completely different with that hairstyle. Have got used to seeing her in her pulled back hair,” one viewer wrote on Twitter.

Since finishing as the MasterChef Australia runner-up in 2009 against Julie Goodwin, Poh has gone on to forge a successful cooking and media career.

She’s fronted her own ABC cooking show, Poh's Kitchen, as well as SBS series Poh & Co.
