Gordon Ramsay has ruled out employing his children as he claimed they should ‘f*** off to another chef’ if they want to work in a restaurant.
The chef, 52, whose wife Tana is pregnant with their fifth child, admitted he didn’t want his staff to feel like they couldn’t scold his kids in the kitchen.
Gordon said his children – Megan, 21, Matilda, 17, and fraternal twins Jack and Holly, 19 – would need to learn the grassroots from another chef before he would hire them due to his refusal to ‘pander to the snowflake generation’.
Honesty is the best policy: Gordon Ramsay told his children to ‘f*** off to another chef’ as he refused to hire the kids because he doesn’t want staff to NOT scold them
He said: ‘It’s like not employing the kids. I don’t want the staff thinking: “F*** it’s Ramsay’s kid, we can’t tell them off.”
‘You want to work in this business? You f*** off to another chef, learn something different and come back with something new to improve the business.’
Known for his fury and expletive-laden rants, Gordon accepted he was ‘firm’ but he insisted he is ‘fair’ because he will get people to the ‘very top’ of their career.

Gordon and Tana previously suffered a miscarriage in June 2016; the chef admitted, in spite of the tragedy, the devastating loss brought his family closer together.
He reflected in an intimate interview with the Daily Mail’s weekend magazine: ‘It has brought us all so much closer.
‘You realise how lucky you are and you reflect on what you have, how fortunate you are with your remaining children and you remind yourself of what you’ve got. It’s made the family unit even tighter.’
