Gordon Ramsay has announced he plans to launch a new TV cookery show on BBC One that will bring The Apprentice into the kitchen.
Foul-mouthed chef Gordon Ramsay will be putting 12 hopeful chefs through their culinary and entrepreneurial paces in his new TV show Future Food Stars that will be a combination of his previous shows and The Apprentice.
The eight-part series will involve putting the contestants through a series of difficult challenges with the finalist winning a life-changing reward.
Gordon made a statement about the upcoming show: “The future of our food industry has never been more exciting.
“I can’t wait to search across the country unearthing some of Britain’s most entrepreneurial talent.
“I’ve spent the last 21 years at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay nurturing, supporting and mentoring some of Great Britain’s greatest chefs and that’s truly why I think investing in the next generation of talented individuals is so important!”
Gordon Ramsay has had a series of hit TV shows including Hell’s Kitchen and Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares, where everyone has had a glimpse of the chef’s no-nonsense attitude and foul-mouthed language.
Previously, Gordon has worked with Channel 4 and ITV but this time, he’s decided to work with the BBC.
Unlike his other shows, the father-of-five will be scouring the country for entrepreneurs and business-driven minds in the food and drink industry.
From what has been revealed so far, there is the implication that Gordon will be addressing what the future of food will be as the food industry constantly is evolving. From online delivery services to food apps and subscription boxes, there is a wide range of areas for chefs with a business mindset to explore.
The winner will be then backed up by Gordon as he invests in their business idea.
Gordon’s show is just one of many shows that the BBC has announced for 2020.
Other shows that have been commissioned include Our Girl, Killing Eve and Oti’s South African Odyssey which will follow Oti Mabuse as she returns to her country of birth and gives the viewers insight into South African landscapes from her childhood.
