Gordon Ramsay has reignited his feud with fellow chef Jamie Oliver after the latter made a remark about children – one year after Gordon and his wife lost a baby.

The Hell’s Kitchen host has accused the former Naked Chef of hitting below the belt after he commented on the amount of children Gordon and his wife Tana have.

Jamie is reported to have said, “he’s got four kids and I’ve got five kids and I don’t want to be slagging off some kids’ dad on telly”, suggesting that as the pair are both fathers they shouldn’t be arguing in public.

But Gordon has seen the remark as a dig at the size of his family, insisting he’ll never talk to his rival again unless he apologises to his wife, Tana, who miscarried with their fifth child last year when she was five months pregnant.

“Jamie turned round and said, ‘I’ve got five kids, he’s got four kids.’ To judge someone else’s family on the amount of kids you have, that’s….” Gordon told the new edition of the Radio Times.

“Boys will always fight and butt heads but Tana was mortified. I mean really mortified.”

Gordon also laid into his TV rival – who in August compared Gordon to a dementia sufferer – saying he only had an opinion when he had “something to promote”.

“It’s all very well to spout off now about sugar tax and supermarkets. None of that was spoken about when he was label-slapping with Sainsbury’s for 10 years,” he said.

“And no disrespect, but we’re chefs, not politicians. When you breathe that stuff down the public’s throat and say, ‘I’m leaving if we have Brexit ‘, then, I’m sorry, the door stands open.

“Stand for what you say. Sadly, the only time he opens his mouth is when he’s got something to promote.”

We can’t see this feud ending any time soon…
