Gordon Ramsay's new show Bank Balance has been big news but it seems like his feet might be even bigger.
The famous Scottish chef and TV host was recently talking to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on This Morning about the quiz show, but it was his claim of having a whopping size 15 shoe size that got the internet talking.
Bank Balance begins tonight on the BBC and will air Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays for the next three weeks.
It sees a pair of contestants try to balance different-sized stacks of gold bars on a balancing board while answering a series of questions. As they balance more on the potential prize money goes up - to a total jackpot of £100,000 - but if the board becomes mis-balanced and comes crashing down they'll leave with nothing.
Ramsay spoke to Schofield and Willoughby about where the idea came from, and also joked about taking advice from his friend and fellow celebrity chef Gino D'Acampo, who hosts Family Fortunes.
"I needed to do something to keep busy, so I turned my hand to Bank Balance" he said.
"Guess who the first person who called me to offer me advice...Gino. I can't swear but no I didn't (take his advice)."
Ramsay of course has become famous on shows such as Kitchen Nightmares and Hell's Kitchen for his notoriously short fuse - while he's also become the fastest growing TikTok user in the world - and he was asked if he was similarly "tetchy" on the new show.
He replied: "When we get to question nine, 10 or 11 then I am like a nervous wreck
"That level of passion is evident, and when they are that close, when you can't think of that final answer then they have to put a penalty on the board and I know that board is going to tip. '
"I've got size 15 feet so I'm walking around this beautiful Bank Balance set on tiptoes, trying not to sneeze, breathe or even just shudder in the event that the board comes crashing down. It's quite nerve wracking."
Never mind the nerves, what about the size of his feet!? Viewers left stunned by the claim. "WOAH, Hang on.... Gordon Ramsey has size 15 feet?" one social media user exclaimed.
While another said: "Size 15 feet ????????? Crikey."
A third added: "Size 15 feet...of course you have."
Someone else demanded proof, saying: "I need to see some visual evidence of these Sasquatch tootsies pronto".
Size 15 does sound pretty large indeed, but then various sources do have Ramsey at around the 6 foot 1 or 1 metre 88 cm mark so it's surely not that far fetched?
Better make sure you're getting a good look when you're watching later on tonight we reckon.
