Gordon Ramsay may have shared his fear recently that he expected to fail in life – but a new deal means he will make a nice small fortune while also airing his latest TV show in the UK and US.
The 55-year-old celebrity chef will make its TV comeback this year with a new cooking show called Future Food Stars – which goes by the cheeky and very Gordon-apt nickname FFS.
The show is meant to imitate The Apprentice and follows 12 food business owners battling for investment from the F-word star.
The show hasn’t even started broadcasting yet, but has already got the go-ahead for a second season on the BBC, while the rights to broadcast the show in the US have already been purchased from the Fox network in a reported “multimillion pound deal”.
A show source has opened up about the exciting new project, tells The Sun on Sunday: “Gordon is very excited because this is the first time he’s had a show like this on TV in the UK and the US at the same time as Fox and the BBC – it’s a big deal for him.
“He’s excited to be shooting a home in Stateside in the New Year and investing in the show’s winning US entrepreneur to add to his American portfolio.
“The Beeb producers are all very excited – the challenges of the series are pretty epic and the personalities of all the participants are huge.
“Mix that with American cinematography and it feels a lot bigger and fresher than most TV shows right now.”
Gordon’s good news comes just days after the star himself said it his fear of failure is what drives him to reach for the stars every day.
He said, “It’s always about being better than what we’ve already done and constantly pushing the envelope.
“I don’t sit there and think, ‘We made it’ or ‘We are financially secure. Why work so hard? ‘”
While Gordon has had huge hits on a few shows – including Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, and Ramsay’s Best Restaurant – he’s not always hitting the right place.
Last year, he hosted a new game show called Bank Balance, which released with a lot of fanfare last February.
However, the show flopped and was canceled after just one season due to low audience ratings.
Meanwhile, recent reports point to Gordon’s success could soon be dwarfed by the success and careers of his five children.

It has been suggested that 23-year-old daughter Megan, 22-year-old twins Jack and Holly, 20-year-old strict star Tilly, and two-year-old son Oscar “could be worth millions in the next few years.” if they take advantage of certain branding opportunities, according to a PR manager.
Nick Ede, founder of the East of Eden PR agency, said: “[They] are certainly going in the same direction as the Beckhams and the Kardashians. You are in the perfect position to arm yourself for fame and fortune. “
The siblings could be “worth millions” if they take advantage of business opportunities, he added, and following in their parents’ footsteps, “they will be the ones to watch by 2022.”
