Blaze confirmed that yes, she is often mistaken for the Doherty Institute director, who has become a regular face in media commentary during the pandemic.

'All the time,' Blaze teased in a GIF, before adding 'but are we ever in the same room'?

A Reddit user recently compared photos of Lewin and Blaze, noting the physical similarities between both women.

'Every time I see Sharon Lewin, the director of the Doherty Institute, speaking on TV, I wonder why Shaynna Blaze from the Block is discussing immunity and epidemiology...' the user wrote.

The Reddit post has been upvoted almost 300 times, with many Aussies agreeing both women share a remarkable resemblance to one another.

'I literally can't tell who is who,' one person said.

'Shaynna's got many talents... epidemiology just happens to be one of them along with feature walls and throw rugs,' joked another. 

A third posed the question: 'Has anyone seen these two in the same room together?' 

'I said the same thing to my wife last week. It just blew my mind. Shaynna is great though; I love her input in every program she has been in,' added another. 

'They definitely should do a TV spot after lockdown, Covid restrictions permitting.'

Lewin has been fronting press conferences in Melbourne and making media appearances to provide health advice and recommendations as Omicron cases continue to rapidly climb across the country. 

In an interview with the Today show on Friday, she threw her support behind eased isolation and close contact rules, despite predicting Omicron cases will surge to 'very high' levels.

Blaze won last year's season of Celebrity Apprentice Australia, raising $300,000 for the charity Voice of Change. 

She will return as a judge on The Block this year.
