Pineapple on pizza has divided the nation more than Brexit, X Factor and Marmite combined. The one person's opinion that we actually care about on the matter has to be Gordon Ramsay's. He's the king of food as well as the king of Twitter.

Anyway, he recently revealed that he fucking HATES pineapple on pizza. However, he agreed to eat some if enough people donated to his charity.

It turns out that they did, so he was forced to put his mouth where our money is.

In an Instagram post he said: "I've got a proposal for YOU: if we can hit 500 donations in the next 48 hours, I will eat this f**king god-awful PINEAPPLE pizza on Facebook Live. Don't forget, your donation also gives you the chance to be my VVIP on #thefword."

His fans appear to side with the 50-year-old, with one saying: "I don't wish pineapple pizza on my worst enemy."

While another commented: "It's awful and it is not a pizza. It's a joke. Eat your pineapples separately."

But if Instagram commenters weren't enough, Gordon has the backing of Iceland's President, Guðni Th. Jóhannesson. The leader revealed he is so against the pairing of pineapple and pizza that if he lived in an autocratic fairy tale, whereby he could pass laws on his own, he would pass a ban on the topping.

Ramsay made his feelings known in April when one Twitter fan begged the chef to allow 'creativity and initiative' in pizza-making. Gordon replied with a simple and savage tweet: "Pineapple does not go on top of pizza."

Pineapple on pizza (as part of a Hawaiian, anyway) has always been widely popular. In 1999, it accounted for 15 percent of pizza sales in Australia, while a 2015 Just Eat survey found it to be the most readily available.
