Gordon Ramsay, 53, is no stranger to telling people exactly how he feels and he certainly didn’t hold back in his most recent interview. The chef caught up with Frank Warren on his Heavyweight Podcast, where he discussed his career and weighed in on TV chefs.
In terms of overrated chefs today… yeah Gino D'Acampo is overrated
During the chat, Gordon also joked that This Morning chef Gino, 43, is “overrated”.
The Hell's Kitchen star described himself as a “real chef” and likened himself to Channel 4's SAS: Who Dares Wins star and former soldier Ant Middleton.
He said: “If I didn't have any TV and wasn't producing those shows, behind all that I'm a real chef so that's the difference.
“You look at Ant Middleton; behind that facade there's a guy who was SBS, special forces, a Royal Marine and prior to that a para.”

He went on to say: “I’m 53 years of age, I got my first Michelin star at 33 so I'm a real chef, not a TV chef.
“And there are TV chefs out there who wouldn't last an hour in a professional kitchen because you've got the power of the edit, you've got the power of the producer and to be totally frank, you're not going to taste any food we cook on TV, because you can't f*****g smell it.
“So you can get away with a lot of s**t on there.”
He added: “In terms of overrated chefs today… yeah Gino D'Acampo is overrated,” which prompted Frank to laugh.
