Gordon Ramsay ‘paid a furious couple’s wedding costs’ after he ‘gatecrashed’ their special day at a beach venue.
The 54-year-old and his production team allegedly turned up to the private land in Newquay, Cornwall, when Charlie Willis, 35, and his wife Laura, 29, were exchanging vows.
In an interview with The Sun, the couple – who paid £1,300 for the private ceremony and food for six people – said that their wedding day turned out to be a ‘nightmare,’ as they ended up feeling ‘like extras’.
Charlie explained: “The whole thing was a complete kitchen nightmare.
“We had both worked so hard to save for that day and we felt like extras on a game show.”
According to the newlyweds, it wasn’t just their vows that were ruined, but also their gourmet dinner – which cost £50 per head.
The pair, who hadn’t exclusively hired the beach, claim that Gordon and his crew took over the kitchen and the meal turned out ‘cheap and nasty’.
The celebrity chef has reportedly paid up the couple’s wedding costs to apologise, after hearing how disappointed they were.
Sharon Powers, Ramsay’s producer, also said that a letter was sent to the pair, apologising for any upset that had been caused.
It read: “Dear Mr and Mrs Willis, I am writing to apologise for the upset our filming caused you on your wedding day at Lusty Glaze beach.
“I am mortified that we affected your special day and I can assure you that it was never our intention to upset you or your guests.
“As you are aware, we have now paid for your wedding in full, which I hope goes some way towards making amends and acknowledging how sorry I am that your special day was affected, albeit unintentionally, by us.
“I do hope you can accept my apologies and I wish you well for the future.”
A representative of the Hell’s Kitchen star also told the Daily Mail: “There was no gate crashing, Studio Ramsay were booked to film on the beach the same day as various weddings and events were taking place.
“It’s a real shame this couple are still complaining, their bill was generously covered.
“They happily chatted with Gordon on the day, they didn’t have exclusive use of the beach and all the other beachgoers had a really great time joining in on and off-camera.”
