20 years after he last starred on the show in the UK, Gordon Ramsay is rumoured to be making his Hell’s Kitchen return, but, it may not be on the cards just yet.

The show that gave us the ‘Idiot Sandwich’ and ‘It’s raaaaaaaw’ was reported to be making a comeback.

Kitchen Nightmares star Gordon, 57, starred on the first series of the UK programme, which ran between 2004 and 2009, before handing over his head chef role to Gary Rhodes and Jean-Christophe Novelli for season two, and Marco Pierre White for the final two instalments.

The Traitors’ Claudia Winkleman also presented the programme when it was last on our screens, while one year after Gordon left the UK series, he started the long-running American programme, which has gone on for 22 seasons.

And it was claimed he was going to be coming back to this side of the pond.

They added to The Sun: ‘The real hurdle for him will be fitting it in among his other commitments, but everyone seems thrilled at the mere idea.’
