Jonathan Ross drops the f-bomb after Gordon Ramsay cancels hit TV show

2014-06-30 15:30

Los Angeles  - Jonathan Ross has called Gordon Ramsay a ''fucker'' for cancelling Kitchen Nightmares.

The chat show host took to Twitter to announce his disappointment at the end of Gordon's reality TV show and threatened to force him into making more series.

Jonathan, 53, wrote on the social networking site: ''Big G... Tell me you're not stopping Kitchen Nightmares !?! Please.

''You fucker. I will hunt you down and MAKE you do more.''

Gordon replied to the tweet, advising Jonathan to make his own version of the hit show.
He wrote: ''You make them ! Wossy's Teppanyaki nightmares !''

The 47-year-old chef starred on the show - which sees him attempt to spruce up failing restaurants - for over a decade and hailed the programme as an ''amazing journey'', thanking viewers for supporting him.

In a statement on his official website, Gordon wrote: ''As filming comes to a close on the latest series of Kitchen Nightmares I've decided to stop making the show. I'm currently filming four new episodes, Costa Del Nightmares, for Channel 4 which will be my last.''

He added: ''I'm glad I've been able to entertain and hopefully help a few people along the way. It's sad to say goodbye to Kitchen Nightmares but I'll be continuing with my other shows. It's been memorable! Thank you for watching.''

Gordon's decision to end the hit show comes just months after it was claimed he plans to leave Channel 4 when his contract expires later this year and sign with ITV.

A source previously said: ''It would be a massive coup for ITV and execs are really excited about the prospect of landing him. Talks have been going really well.

''Gordon doesn't think Channel 4 is the right fit for him any more and has been gradually winding down his work with them over the last 12 months.

''He wants to come back with a bang - and ITV is the place to do it.''
