Foul-mouthed Gordon Ramsay lands his first ever primetime BBC show, with budding restaurateurs battling for his affections

BOSSES at the BBC had ­better get their bleepers at the ready, as they’ve hired the world’s sweariest chef.

I can reveal Gordon ­Ramsay is heading to the broadcaster to front his own cookery contest, which will follow his search for the next big thing in the culinary world.

The series, which has the working title Step Up To The Plate, would be his first solo project on the Beeb despite huge success with rivals Channel 4 and ITV.

Producers are looking for contestants for the primetime show, who have the “seed” of an innovative cookery idea to pitch to Gordon. A TV source said: “It’s a great coup for the BBC to pinch Gordon from its rivals.

“The show is in its very early stages, but everyone hopes it can go from a pilot to a full series.

“Gordon is hugely popular with audiences and a household name with unrivalled knowledge of the industry.

“They want chefs, restaurateurs or someone developing the next big food or drink product to apply now.”

Gordon has appeared on various BBC shows over the years, including Top Gear and his daughter Matilda’s CBBC show.

His most recent work on British telly was Gordon Ramsay On Cocaine, and the very funny Gordon, Gino & Fred’s Road Trip with Gino D’Acampo and Fred Sirieix.

A mash-up of those two shows would be lively.
