Gordon Ramsay doesn't swear at home.

The 48-year-old TV chef is notoriously foul-mouthed at work, but insists he doesn't transgress around his house, because of the presence of his children, 13-year-old Tilly, 15-year-old twins Jack and Holly, and Megan, 16.

He shared: ''My kids know not to use naughty words! I don't swear at home.''

Tilly - Gordon's youngest daughter - claims she's a better cook than her acclaimed father, whose restaurants hold as many as 14 Michelin stars, and he says her attitude is indicative of their dynamic.

He told The Sun newspaper: ''There's always lots of competitiveness in our family.

''We have playful rivalry every day in our family.''

This comes shortly after Tilly claimed her dad is ''soft on the inside''.

She said her mum Tana is in charge at their house, despite Gordon's demonstrative personality.

Tilly explained: ''He is strict in a good way. I'd say Mum was stricter. Dad is all soft on the inside.''

In fact, she said Tana is the only person her dad is fearful of.

Speaking about her mother, she added: ''She wears the trousers and is the only one dad's afraid of.''
