Gordon Ramsay can’t wait to cause a stir again and reunite with his neighbours in Cornwall after sparking outrage during the first lockdown.
The Hell’s Kitchen star and his family, including wife Tana, travelled 250 miles from London to their £4 million holiday home in Cornwall last May.
It angered locals as lockdown measures at the time were to stay home, particularly prohibiting travel to second homes.
When asked what he’s most looking forward to after lockdown, Gordon laughed at the controversy and told The Sun: ‘Getting back to see my f*****g neighbours in Cornwall.’
He then joked: ‘And guess what? I’ve invited Joe Biden for breakfast… Wait till you see who I’ve got coming for f*****g breakfast. Big Joe! You know he’s coming down for the G7.
‘They’re [his neighbours] gonna go crazy.’
Gordon, 54, also addressed the scrutiny he received for going on lengthy bike rides in the area and added: ‘There was no law to say that you had to cycle for an hour and an hour only.’
Locals in Cornwall reportedly criticised the TV chef for his non-essential travel to the seaside in a Facebook group. They feared being exposed to coronavirus from outsiders and police in the town recently reiterated warnings for people to stay away from Cornwall.
At the time, a friend close to the family hit back at the criticism, calling it a ‘hurtful and unnecessary’ campaign’ as the Ramsays see Cornwall as their ‘family home’ and usually spend most of their time there.
They told Metro.co.uk: ‘The family see Cornwall as their family home when the kids are back from uni and Gordon back from filming around the world.
‘It’s where they spend all their family time together, they’ve been spending time there for 10 years and Jack actually lives in the house there.’
The friend added: ‘Most of their neighbours are so welcoming and they love being part of the community.
‘They’ve been following the government advice, along with the rest of the country, since they arrived on 20 March and the campaign against them is hurtful and unnecessary at a time when we should all be coming together and supporting each other.’
