Gordon Ramsay has surprised fans by revealing he actually loves vegan food and it has taken him ‘20 years’ to admit this.

In a recent episode of MasterChef, the host kept teasing contestants during the show’s first-ever plant-based cooking challenge about a secret by saying: “It’s a secret that’s so big, I’m almost afraid to say it on national television.”

After his fellow presenters kept making fun of Ramsay, the chef finally confessed: “After all these years, I can finally admit that I actually love vegan food.”

The 55-year-old has been known in the past to ridicule vegans and disregard vegan food, going as far as once allegedly saying he was ‘allergic to vegans,’ so this revelation has shocked fans on social media.

On Twitter, one fan wrote: “That makes me love grumpy Gordon!”

Another person posted: “Gordon Ramsay finally admitted that he loves vegan food. We knew he’d come around!”

Despite this, some fans don’t believe his latest admission and feel it is just a ‘publicity stunt’.

One user commented: “He must be opening a restaurant and looking for free advertising on social media, when are the British public going to see through this?”

Someone else posted: “Maybe… but he’s still pushing his rotting flesh recipes, I have not seen him producing anything vegan.”

Although he only recently admitted this, it has been evident in his restaurants that he has been encouraging more vegan options. 

In 2019, he introduced a plant-based menu at his London eatery Bread Street Kitchen.

Last year, he opened his first restaurant in Chicago and a vegan burger was available from the start.

However, Ramsay has recently come under significant backlash after his latest TikTok video had him rubbing his hands and ‘selecting’ a lamb to kill for food.
