I bet when you clicked on this you thought you were going to see one of Gordon Ramsay’s foul mouthed rants intensified to the absolute zenith after he had taken a line of gak, but unfortunately that isn’t going to be the case.

Instead, we’re going to bring you all the details of Ramsay’s new two part documentary series where he investigates the cocaine trade that’s going to be broadcast on ITV later this month. Imaginatively entitled ‘Gordon Ramsay On Cocaine’, here’s what the celebrity chef had to say about it:
I’ve wanted to understand the ‘world’ of cocaine ever since I lost one of my chefs at my flagship restaurant in Chelsea and I wanted to learn why it’s becoming such an epidemic – not just globally but specifically in the culinary world.
I dare anyone to watch this series and not think again about taking cocaine.
I saw cocaine quite early on in my career. I’ve been served it. I’ve been given it.
I’ve had my hand shaken and left with little wraps of foil in it. I’ve been asked to dust cocaine on top of soufflés, to put it on as icing sugar… coke’s everywhere. It’s spiralling out of control.
The documentary is gritty and shocking, but importantly an eye opener and hopefully a real education to all those in our industry and beyond.
The show is going to be broadcast on October 19th at 9pm on ITV and will see Ramsay interviewing drug smugglers, traffickers and some of the head honchos of the cocaine trade in South and Central America, as well as those on the other side in law enforcement. Can’t see him talking to any of those bad guys like he does to the chefs on his shows, but probably just going to tune in anyway with the hopes of him chewing someone out and then getting gunned down. That would be some quality television.
