Chef gets sick after picking up severe virus

Kitchen Nightmares star Gordon Ramsay is recovering from a bout of food poisoning.

The chef got sick when he arrived in Australia to promote the Melbourne Good Food And Wine Show.

Gordon, 42, spent the whole of his first night Down Under puking in his hotel room.

‘I have had a severe food virus and I was constantly vomiting,’ he says.

‘I got off the plane after a 16-hour flight from Los Angeles and I don’t know what happened but at least I’m now on the road to recovery.

‘I’ve had a jab in the butt and had some penicillin and I feel a lot better.’
