Gordon Ramsay put his personal problems behind him on Wednesday (22Dec10) to host a Christmas party for his celebrity pals, including DAVID and Victoria Beckham and pregnant Emma Bunton.
The British chef has endured a turbulent 2010 which has seen his business empire struggling to recover from serious financial problems and hit with numerous lawsuits over allegedly unpaid bills and massive tax demands.
Ramsay also fell out with his wife's father Chris Hutcheson after the businessman left his post as CEO of Gordon Ramsay Holdings (GRH). Hutcheson is now suing his son-in-law for $3 million (£2 million) and the family feud has played out in the press.
But the star is refusing to let his recent family and business troubles affect his fun festive season - he and his wife Tana put on a united front by hosting a lavish dinner party at their London home this week (beg20Dec10),
Guests included the Beckhams, singer Bunton and her partner Jade Jones, and British funnyman James Corden and his pregnant girlfriend Julia Carey.
