F Word chef Gordon Ramsay fires up Jamie Oliver feud
GORDON RAMSAY has vowed never to talk to Jamie Oliver again — unless he apologises for comments he made about the sweary chef’s family.
The feud between the foody pair has blown up over something Jamie told The Sun back in August.
Oliver allegedly said: ‘He’s got four kids and I’ve got five kids and I don’t want to be slagging off some kids’ dad on telly. It’s not nice.’
But Ramsay seems to have got the wrong end of the stick and believes Jamie was making a dig at him and wife Tana, who lost a child to a miscarriage last year.
Speaking to the Radio Times magazine, Gordon said the spat between the pair had been ‘fun’ until Jamie made the comment after what had been a ‘s*** year’.
‘Jamie turned round and said, “I’ve got five kids, he’s got four kids,”‘ Ramsay said. ‘To judge someone else’s family on the amount of kids you have…’
He added that he wouldn’t be speaking to Jamie again as his wife had been ‘mortified’ by the comments.
‘Boys will always fight and butt heads but Tana was mortified, I mean really mortified,’ he said.
The F Word chef also didn’t hold back in blasting what he sees as Oliver’s self-promoting ways.
‘It’s all very well to spout off now about sugar tax and supermarkets. None of that was spoken about when he was label-slapping with Sainsbury’s for 10 years,’ Ramsay said.
‘And no disrespect, but we’re chefs, not politicians. When you breathe that stuff down the public’s throat and say, “I’m leaving if we have Brexit”, then, I’m sorry, the door stands open.
‘Stand for what you say. Sadly, the only time he opens his mouth is when he’s got something to promote.’
