The exuberant reality TV star, whose outfit choices often include his trademark cravat and colourful suits, posted a picture of the late Hollywood actor Cesar Romero who portrayed The Joker during the 1960s.

‘One of my fashion icons #MasterChefAU,’ he captioned the image.

He followed up the tweets with pictures of more modern day portrayals of the fictional character.

‘Just crackin’ a smile…,’ he replied.

Last week, the restaurant critic laughed of criticisms of a bright magenta coloured suit he wore on the popular game show.

One seemingly unimpressed fan compared his loud ensemble to that of Disney’s Governor Ratcliffe in Pocahontas prompting a funny response.

‘I channel how Barney the dinosaur would dress if he ran a Colombian drug cartel,’ Matt tweeted alongside a selfie of his bold look.
