Gordon Ramsay Takes A Bite Out Of Jamie Oliver

Foul-mouthed Gordon Ramsay has taken a bite out of rival Jamie Oliver, insisting the Naked Chef is too much of a porker to be on U.S. TV.

The F-Word star turned the heat up on his kitchen nemesis following Jamie's campaign against obesity in America, where he tried to overhaul junk food lovers' diets.

In an interview with Alan Carr, Gordon insists Jamie had no place lecturing portly Americans on their weight - as he's carrying an extra few pounds himself.

He tells the Chatty Man host: “You have to be very careful when you go across the pond and you want to dictate to Americans about healthy eating. If you’re not in that best shape yourself then you have to be very careful.”

And Gordon didn't stop boiling away there - he accused Jamie of fancying his wife Tana during his rant-filled appearance on the show, which airs on Friday night.

He adds: “I think Jamie Oliver has a crush on my wife because every time he gets the chance to mention me he goes to my wife. For Christmas all I want to do is give him a f***ing good wash.
