A major police search is underway in New York, after celebrity swearer and sometime chef Gordon Ramsay disappeared during the filming of his hit show Kitchen Nightmares.
Ramsay, 44, had just wrapped the day's shooting at his latest project 'Vito's Legitimate Family Restaurant' and was expected at his hotel for a crew meal, but failed to arrive.
"We're worried for Gordon, because this is unlike him except when he's out shagging." a spokesman for his production company said. "Because he's been over-using Little Gordon, he's not out on the pull at the moment, so for him to suddenly go awol is worrying."
Vito Tordolli, the owner of the restaurant said he was surprised as well.
"We'd just done the day's filming and this wise guy had attacked everything we do. However, we took it in good grace and were as surprised as anyone to hear that he's apparently in the wind. It's not like he's not known; his face is everywhere, so it'd be hard for him to to be made somwehere if he's trying to get away from things."
"All I know is that the last I saw of him was when he got into a car with a couple of people who looked like they were with his crew and they drove off towards Bath Beach. He did look whacked and I'd hate to think that something nasty's happened to him."
A Spokesman for the New York Police department confirmed they've launched an inquiry.
