Tommy Pham has paid tribute to his MasterChef Australia co-star Julie Goodwin following her shock elimination on Tuesday.

The 31-year-old posted a series of photos to Instagram of Julie at his son Miles’ recent birthday party, as well as throwbacks from their time on the series.

‘If you told me 13 years ago that Julie would be someone I would call family I’d smile and slowly walk away from you!’ Tommy wrote.

‘Julie is literally the kindest and most wonderful person I’ve ever met, period. Julie always felt like my home away from home and made me feel like family from day dot,’ he continued.

‘Julie, I hope you know you’ve still got it and that coming back to MasterChef reinvigorated your love for food and life.

‘Miles misses you and he talks about “uncle Julie” all the time. I can’t wait for him to see you again.’

In one of the photos, Julie is seen smiling alongside Tommy and Miles at the little boy’s birthday party.

It comes after Julie was sent home from MasterChef on Tuesday after her sticky date pudding, ice cream and whiskey caramel sauce fell short during an elimination challenge in Tasmania.

‘It looked a million bucks on that plate and more than that, you absolutely smashed the brief,’ judge Jock Zonfrillo said at crunch time.

He continued: ‘[But] the bottom of all of our cakes were burnt. Which left a bitter, burnt flavour in our mouths.

‘Which is why – I’m sorry, Julie – for the first time ever, you’re going home.’

Julie, who won the first season of MasterChef in 2009, said: ‘You know, I was there in the first generation of this family and it feels kind of appropriate to be handing over, you know, to a new generation.’
