Gordon Ramsay fans are convinced that the famous chef made a cheeky dig at ‘whingeing’ locals close to his holiday home in Cornwall. 

Last week, the Hell’s Kitchen star residents travelled down to the site from his main home in London during the coronavirus lockdown, reports The Sun.

It’s believed that once neighbours heard of his arrival, some of them took to a private social media page and blasted him for travelling when a pandemic is taking place.

In response, the father-of-five took to Instagram and shared a clip of a bundle of asparagus that a neighour ‘from across the field’ had kindly dropped off.

He said: “C’mon, seriously, that’s literally growing in the back of my garden.

“Now that’s what I call love thy neighbour, see? That’s how you look after each other across these difficult times. There you go.”

Referencing tension with some of the locals, he added: “I’m sure one local will whinge about the asparagus. God bless you.”

According to The Sun, the private page was full of ‘hurtful’ comments about the chef and his family.

The publication claims that one group member stated that the Ramsays believe they’re ‘immune from the virus and any rules’.

However, a friend of the family hit back at the criticism and dubbed it a ‘hurtful and unnecessary campaign,’ as the family spend a lot of time in Cornwall.

A source told the Metro: “The family see Cornwall as their family home when the kids are back from uni and Gordon back from filming around the world.

“It’s where they spend all their family time together, they’ve been spending time there for 10 years and Jack actually lives in the house there full time too.”

They added: “Most of their neighbours are so welcoming and they love being part of the community.

“They’ve been following the government advice, along with the rest of the country, since they arrived on March 20 and the campaign against them is hurtful and unnecessary at a time when we should all be coming together and supporting each other.”
