The celebrity chef was put in his place

Gordon Ramsay’s mum Helen told him off for likening Australian presenter Tracy Grimshaw to a pig.

She called the Kitchen Nightmares star and asked him to explains his actions.

‘She was disgusted and she wanted to know what actually happened,’ Gordon tells the Melbourne Herald Sun.

‘When your mum rings you and starts giving you a b******ing down the telephone, then you start to get the picture.’

Gordon, 42, has now said sorry to Tracy, 39, for comments he made about her at a food show.

‘I exchanged a five-minute phone call with Gordon Ramsay and accepted his apology,’ she says.

‘It was very big for someone as outspoken as Gordon to admit he was wrong.’
