People Hate Gordon Ramsay's Gravy

Love him or hate him, if there is one thing you would bank on Gordon Ramsay getting right it would be a Sunday roast.

Well, apparently not. Critics have hit out at the world-renowned chef, with many calling his gravy an absolute disgrace.

A video was shared from the 52-year-old potty-mouthed cook's social accounts of the gravy being poured onto the roast, with the caption: "Proper Sunday roast at @heddonstkitchen ! And just look at that Yorkshire pudding....get the recipe."

Sadly, however, it didn't quite go down as well as expected and people did not mince their words.

One person wrote: "That not gravy that cat piss."

A second added: "Gravy is way too runny. Looks garbage."

A third critic said: "Look at that gravy, it's a disgrace. Team proper thick gravy."

While another put: "Meat yes, roasts a bit more colour, not a bad Yorkshire. Gravy nah proper thick gravy and lashings of it."

But it wasn't just the gravy that came in for some criticism, most of the chef's fans and followers weren't impressed with any of the bits of his roast.

One commented: "You forgot to cook the meat."

A second person then said: "Pretty sure that beef would still go "moo" if you cut into it"

Another slammed Ramsay's cred, writing: "The meat is horribly undercooked, the potatoes... just no - and wtf is that veg? Gravy looks like Bisto too. I going to say that I'm out."

Not everyone was so offended by his attempt at the traditional British dish. Some even came out in support, backing the outspoken television personality.

"OMHS this looks good!" wrote one.

A second fan added on Instagram: "Gordon Ramsay is hands down the best chef in the world."

But let's face it, he probably couldn't give two idiot sandwiches what anyone thinks about him.

And with the birth of his fifth child earlier this month, he's certainly got bigger things to worry about than the consistency of a beefy sauce.

He and wife Tania welcomed their new baby boy, Oscar James Ramsay, into the world on 4 April.

Sharing the good news on Instagram to his 6.2 million followers, Ramsay wrote: "After 3 Baftas and one Emmy... finally we have won an Oscar, please welcome Oscar James Ramsay, who touched down at 12:58 today for some lunch!"

So, what do you think of Ramsay's roast? Do you agree with the critics or is it all gravy?
