Gordon Ramsay has made the most outrageous claim of his career – he’s giving up curse words. The TV chef said that he’s too old to keep firing out expletive-filled rants and was embarrassed when two episodes of Kitchen Nightmares contained 298 F***s, or as I like to think of it, around the same number as a weekend with Tiger in Vegas.
Said Gord: “I wasn’t proud of that. There has come a time when I’m getting a bit tired of the foul-mouthed bully chef.”
“I was a crazy f*****g psycho. If anyone even bruised a chive I came down on them like a ton of bricks.” Erm, good start there Gordon.
Frankly, I’m amazed he’s done so well in the US with the amount of swearing on his show, as usually Americans are offended by stars who use too much foul-language. But don’t worry, he’s not going to give up the hard man act completely.
“I’ve never tried to get the Great British blue-rinse nation to start falling in love with me,” he said.
“I don’t want a radical change where I have to put on a woolly hat and scarf and go round every Women’s Institute to improve their Victoria sponge or show them a much better recipe for spotted dick.”
Even if you stop talking completely Gordon, I can’t imagine you doing that!
