Gordon Ramsay discusses his weight… and his wife

The television star explained his weight slowly began to creep up during his early career.

He told the Daily Mail: “Tana was not impressed with the way I was. I was overweight, 18 stone. I looked like a sack of [bleep].

“I look at the pictures and think, ‘How did Tana stay around?’ Because Tana has got better-looking and more gorgeous. And there she is, getting in bed with a fat [bleep].”

It was painful

Despite winning his third Michelin star at the time, his long working hours meant Gordon often reached for snacks instead of nutritious meals.

As a result, Tana urged her husband to take better care of himself.

Gordon, 54, added: “It was painful. I used to look at myself in the mirror and think, ‘Holy [bleep]!’ So it was a big wake-up call.”

He enlisted the help of a former army captain to put him through his paces.

He ran the London Marathon with his twins, Jack and Holly, to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital in 2018.
