When Oliver found his Food Revolution show canned in the US after just two seasons, Ramsay was quick to wade in with his opinions on why he’d had the programme cancelled, accusing Jamie Oliver of being too overweight to be fronting a programme preaching to Americans about weight loss.
“You have to be very careful when you go across the pond and you want to dictate to Americans about healthy eating. If you’re not in that best shape yourself then you have to be very careful,” said Ramsay, according to The Sun. Not content with having a poke at Jamie’s flabby midriff (not literally, we hasten to add), he also accused the Naked Chef of fancying his wife Tana. “I think Jamie Oliver has a crush on my wife because every time he gets the chance to mention me he goes to my wife.” Very mature, Gordon, very mature! Almost as mature as your assertion that all you want to do for Christmas is give the guy “a good f***ing wash.”
Jamie’s not the only one on the receiving end of Gordon’s bilious comments, either. He also accused Anthony Worral-Thompson of concocting recipes that even dogs wouldn’t eat. “I’ve been naughty at times — ripping pages out of chefs’ cookbooks, making the recipes and then running to Battersea Dogs Home to see how many of them will eat the s***. There was one time where there was a golden retriever and I made a dish out of Antony Worrall Thompson’s book and it wouldn’t eat it.” Er, maybe it’s the way you make ‘em, Gordon.
