Gordon Ramsay hit no punches when he said he “can’t stand” to UK county residents.
The 55-year-old chef is no stranger to ruffled wings, so it’s no complete shock that he didn’t hold back during an interview with Vernon Kay on his BBC Radio 2 show.
Ramsay begins by revealing that he enjoys spending time in Cornwall, where he has a luxurious second home – but talks less about the residents.
He said: “I would go to the beautiful Cornish coast and take a little line-caught bass and do it with lightly mashed potatoes.
“Trust me, I love Cornwall – it’s just Cornwall that I can’t stand.”
Eager to avoid being an angry Cornish target, Kay shouted, “He said, not me!” It’s G-Man, it has nothing to do with me! ,
Ramsay appears to have opted to spend most of the first coronavirus lockdown with his family at his Cornwall home instead of his London pad.
According to a 2020 report, residents took to a private Facebook group to reprimand the TV chief for putting other people at risk.
One resident told the Mirror: ‘There are a lot of older people here – it’s a large population, the average age is 65-85, with a lot of people living alone.
“It’s a scary time. I think it’s up to celebrities to set a good example, not run to their country homes. »
But in a recent interview with the Radio Times explaining why he chose to stay in Cornwall, Ramsay said: “God knows why we did so much shit in Cornwall.
“We used to live there; We just weren’t there for a long time. We didn’t go there at all.
“We arrived at the right time and had an absolutely wonderful time. And one such moment – we will never come back.
“When the kids started disappearing again, I didn’t want it to end – as a father, not as a boss. »
While his wife Tana also defended his stay, speaking to the Underground in November 2020, he said: “We want to be safe and help everyone stay as safe as possible.
“We spent our time in our house with our family, and you know that was the most important thing. ,
