Gordon Ramsay is familiar with people freaking out in his presence. The celebrity chef, famous for his foulmouthed tirades on his cookery show Hell’s Kitchen, regularly leaves people speechless and shaking in fear. However, this time everyone is trembling for a very different reason.
The 50-year-old star left his followers on Instagram short for breath when he uploaded a candid snap of himself topless after completing a triathlon. Instantly recognizable for the deep lines on his forehead, fans weren’t expecting to see the same defined lines on his torso. The father-of-four, who has recently been filming the documentary Gordon Ramsay on Cocaine, is never one to be shy. He has built his entire career off the back of his tough teaching approach, so naturally he seemed quite comfortable whilst posing topless for the camera. It would appear that swearing burns off a lot of calories! Ramsay, who is an avid cycler, has often been quite vocal about his health. “My father passed at 53 [years old] with a heart attack,” he told Delish in 2016. “My brother’s an addict, so I’ve got that scare-mongering going on, on a weekly basis, that I need to stay fit.” Although, Ramsay has previously hinted to another reason for his toned physique. In true Ramsay style, he once said: “I don’t think it’s a good advert for any restaurant, a fat chef, and secondly, who wants to eat a dessert when the chef’s a fat pig?”
“When you’re a chef, you graze. You never get a chance to sit down and eat … So when I finish work, the first thing I’ll do, and especially when I’m in New York, I’ll go for a run. And I’ll run 10 or 15km, and I run to gain my appetite.”
“Running started as a way of relaxing. It’s the only time I have to myself. No phones, e-mails or faxes,” says the celebrity chef, who is often spotted out swimming and cycling by paparazzi. It would appear that Ramsay’s passion for sport came from a young age. “My father was a swim teacher. We used to swim before school, swim after school,” he recalls. For a man famous for his work with food, Ramsay is surprisingly lean. Certainly leaner than any of the meat he serves in his Michelin-star rated restaurants. However, he is careful about what he puts into his body. Something he is now promoting with his new TV show, Gordon Ramsay on Cocaine, where he travels into the depths of the Columbian rainforest to see how the drug is made. “I saw cocaine quite early on in my career. I’ve been served it. I’ve been given it,” the Kitchen Nightmareshost tells the cameras. “I’ve cooked some serious s**t in my life but nothing quite on this level,” the outspoken chef explains, before launching in to an attack on Hollywood and their familiarity with the substance.“I’ve had my hand shaken and left with little wraps of foil in it. I’ve been asked to dust cocaine on top of soufflés, to put it on as icing sugar… Coke’s everywhere. It’s spiraling out of control.” So, the moral of this story? Don’t take drugs, ensure you exercise and don’t forget to follow Gordon Ramsay on Instagram!
