Gordon Ramsay's Brutal Five Word Response When Daughter Tilly's Pet Turkey Sent To Be Slaughtered

Gordon Ramsay is hardly known for being the most compassionate personality, and on occasion that may even apply to his relationship with his daughter Tilly.

Tilly Ramsay, who is currently competing on the latest series of Strictly Come Dancing, revealed her dad is still a tough critic when it comes to her cooking.

Appearing on This Morning, she said that Gordon is 'really tough on her' and doesn't hesitate to let her know if something isn't up to his incredibly high standards.

While that might not come as such a massive of a surprise to anyone who has frequently binged Kitchen Nightmares, one particular moment that aired during a 2005 episode of Gordon's show The F Word saw the renowned chef criticised for his less-than-tactful approach with Tilly.

A young child at the time, Tilly was made to say goodbye to the turkeys she had helped her dad raise as they were sent off to be slaughtered.

"Bye bye turkeys," said Gordon, before adding: "See you in the oven!"

Recalling the incident in a recent interview, Gordon told Herald Scotland: "Tilly must have been three.

"The turkeys were to give them the responsibility of understanding how important food is, wasting nothing; from turkeys they went to pigs, from pigs they went to lambs."

At the time, the footage showing the turkeys being killed was subject to an Ofcom investigation, though the regulator later cleared the show of any wrongdoing.

"The clear intention from the outset was to explain both to the viewer and Gordon Ramsay's family the process which brings turkey meat to people's tables on Christmas Day," Ofcom said in its ruling.

Gordon also spoke about the intense schedule Tilly faced while competing on Strictly, offering an insight into her training and dietary regime.

He said: "I saw her [smart] watch the other day and she burned 5,800 calories, and something like 32,000 steps, training for 12 hours.

"She preps herself, every morning it's either toast or porridge, and then for lunch, it'll be like a chicken salad.

"And then for dinner, it's either some pasta, carbs, to load up, but trust me, she's a little firecracker, she knows how to look after herself."

Tilly has frequently appeared alongside her dad on TV, first showcasing her culinary talents on Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Home Cooking, before going on to host her own cooking show, Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch on CBBC.

She's also written her own cookbook, Tilly's Kitchen Takeover.
