Gordon Ramsay has found himself in hot water in Australia for the amount of swearing in his television programmes.
The Catholic Church wants the chef’s shows banned or broadcast later in the evening, while the Australian parliament has set up an inquiry to consider the possibility of introducing new rules for swearing on television.
One senator claimed that a single episode of Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares contained the f-word twice every minute.
Despite Ramsay’s foul mouth, however, the Ozzies love his programmes. Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares and Hell’s Kitchen attract an audience of some 1.4m.
Gordon Ramsay has lent his name to glassware and tableware ranges from Royal Doulton.
