The celebrity chef has a new show coming soon – which has already been ordered for a second series before the first even aired and an American network has secured the rights to broadcast the show across the pond
Gordon Ramsay may have recently shared his fear that he expects to fail in life – but a new business deal means he will earn a handsome small fortune while simultaneously broadcasting his latest TV show in the UK and the United States.
The 55-year-old celebrity chef is set to make his return to TV this year with a new cooking show called Future Food Stars – which goes by the cheeky and very appropriate nickname Gordon FFS.
The show is said to mimic The Apprentice and follow 12 food entrepreneurs battling it out for the F Word star’s investment.
The show hasn’t even started airing yet, but has already been greenlit for a second season on the BBC, while the show’s US broadcast rights have already been purchased by the Fox network in part of a “multi-million pound deal”.
A source from the show opened up about the exciting new project, telling The Sun on Sunday: “Gordon is super excited because it’s the first time he’s had a program like this on TV in the UK. United as well as in the United States, with Fox and the BBC at the same time – that’s a big deal for him.
“He’s very much looking forward to filming Stateside in the new year, where he has a home, and investing in the show’s winning American entrepreneur to add to his American portfolio.
“The producers of Beeb are all very excited – the challenges of the show are pretty epic, and the personalities of all the contestants are huge.
“Mix that with American-style cinematography and it looks a lot bigger and fresher than most TV shows on the box right now.”
Gordon’s happy news comes just days after the star himself said his fear of failure is what drives him to aim for the stars every day.
He said: “It’s always about being better than what we’ve already done and constantly pushing the boundaries.
“I don’t sit down and think ‘We’ve made it’ or ‘We’re financially secure. Why work so hard?’”
Although Gordon has enjoyed huge success on some shows, including Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares and Ramsay’s Best Restaurant, he doesn’t always hit the right spot.
Last year he led a new game show called Bank Balance which was released to much fanfare last February.
However, the show flopped and was canceled after just one season due to low ratings.
Meanwhile, recent reports suggest Gordon’s success may soon be overshadowed by the success and careers of his five children.

It has been suggested that 23-year-old daughter Megan, 22-year-old twins Jack and Holly, 20-year-old Strictly star Tilly and two-year-old son Oscar could “be worth millions in the coming years”. if they’re capitalizing on certain branding opportunities, according to a public relations executive.
Nick Ede, the founder of public relations agency East of Eden, said: “[They] are certainly going in the same direction as the Beckhams and the Kardashians. They are in the perfect position to prepare for fame and fortune.”
The siblings could “be worth millions” if they take advantage of business opportunities, he added, and following in their parents’ footsteps “they will be the ones to watch in 2022”.
