Gordon Ramsay might be known for his foul-mouthed language in the kitchen, but his latest tweet proves he's a big softy.

The celebrity chef responded to a child who suffers from a gastrointestinal (GI) condition after she wrote him a letter asking him to cook for her. 

Abigail Carper, eight, spends a lot of time in hospital and has to eat through a feeding tube.

Calling herself Ramsay's "biggest fan", she hand wrote him a letter saying she knew he would make her something "really good". 

"When I grow up I want to be a chef just like you," Abigail wrote.

"Do you think you could cook some food or make new recipes on MasterChef Jr for me using only ingredients I can eat?

"My mum tries but she’s just an ok cook. I know you could make me something really good."

Abigail's letter was shared on Twitter and a recording of her reading the letter out loud was also posted on YouTube. 

Ramsay noticed the tweet and responded directly on Tuesday 19 April, saying: "Hey gorgeous Abigail, thx [sic] for your kind letter.

"Ask mummy to DM please take care Chef Ramsay xxx."

Abigail's mum eagerly replied to the tweet, saying her daughter was "ecstatic".

We're excited to see what follows!
