The TV chef has a dig at Jamie

Gordon Ramsay has accused Jamie Oliver of being too chubby to lecture Americans about dieting.

Jamie‘s show Food Revolution – which aimed to help the country tackle obesity – was cancelled in the US last year and Gordon, 46, reckons he knows why.

‘You have to be very careful when you go across the pond and you want to dictate to Americans about healthy eating,’ says Gordon.

‘If you’re not in that best shape yourself then you have to be very careful.’

It’s not just his weight that Gordon has slammed Jamie, 37, for – he also hints that he thinks the chef could do with a shower.

He goes as far as to suggest that Jamie has a soft spot for his wife Tana.

‘I think Jamie Oliver has a crush on my wife because every time he gets the chance to mention me he goes to my wife,’ Gordon tells Alan Carr’s Chatty Man.

‘For Christmas all I want to do is give him a f*cking good wash.’
