Ramsey started the disagreement when, last year, he criticised Oliver for not attending the opening of his new restaurant in Hong Kong. While appearing at the opening of his own eatery, Bread Street Kitchen, Ramsey spoke to CNBC and said: "Two British chefs, Jamie Oliver and Gordon Ramsey, rubbing shoulders together in Hong Kong. At least I’m here, I came to my opening, right?"

Months later and now Oliver has responded to the insult. He told The Mirror: "Gordon will do anything to try to take the p**s out of me because he is deeply jealous and can’t quite work out why I do what I do and why he can’t do that.

"He is too busy shouting and screaming and making our industry look like a bunch of shouters and screamers."

Jamie is currently number one on the bestsellers list for his newest book, Save With Jamie, and believes it’s successes such as his three million book sales that irritate his rival.

He added: "I think that really, really annoys him."
