Gordon Ramsay admits using camera to spy on daughter’s bedroom
TV chef makes outlandish claims in jokey exchange with chat show host Jonathan Ross
Gordon Ramsay has admitted on TV that he uses a hidden camera to spy on his daughter’s bedroom.
Joking to Jonathan Ross that he wants to talk to her about all the “revision” she’s been doing, it is a claim which Megan, 15, may not see as a laughing matter.
Speaking on the presenter’s ITV chat show, Mr Ramsay said he had enlisted the help of his 13-year-old son Jack to plant a Go-Pro high definition camera in Megan’s room.
“I’ve been a bit naughty,” the 46-year-old TV chef said. The Kitchen Nightmares star appeared on the show following the announcement that his former New York restaurant – still trading as Gordon Ramsay at The London – has been stripped of its two Michelin stars.
According to reports in the Telegraph, Mr Ramsay said: “Megan’s 15, she’s here tonight with her boyfriend.
“They’ve been spending a lot of time in her room recently. But revising. Revising.
“They seem to be spending a lot of time revising and yet the results aren’t…
“I’ve been a bit naughty over the last couple of weeks because I got Jack a little Go-Pro. One of those little secret cameras.
“So I said to him: ‘Look mate, here’s twenty quid, go and target your big sister’s room and put that camera right at the top left-hand side of the wardrobe.’
“So, Megan, I’d like to talk to you about your revising.”
It remains to be seen just how seriously Mr Ramsay meant the claims – last year an American college student brought a restraining order against her parents after they started spying on her with secret data-tracking software.
Mr Ramsay, himself an active and outspoken fitness fanatic, also took the opportunity to throw a playful taunt at fellow TV chef Jamie Oliver. “If he completes an Iron Man, I’ll give him a Michelin star,” he said.
