The famous chef has admitted he is open for the dance show after proudly watching his daughter Tilly appear on Strictly Come Dancing.

TV chef Gordon Ramsay's daughter Tilly, 21, took part in the 19th series of BBC's Strictly Come Dancing and has convinced the audiences with her great effort and impressive performance. Gordon now looks like he might compete on the show in the future.

Who is Gordan Ramsay?

Gordon Ramsay is a world-class chef who rose to popularity with his appearance on reality shows such as MasterChef and Hell Kitchen. He is also known for the three Michelin stars string of restaurants all over the world.

Along with a successful career, the notoriously cranky chef is undoubtedly admired for his sweet family. He met his wife, Cayetana Elizabeth Hutcheson in 1992 when he was 26 and she was only 18. Their dating lasted for four years before they decided to take their romance to the next level with a lavish wedding in December 1996. They shared five children together: Megan Jane Ramsay, twins Jack Scott Ramsay and Holly Anna Ramsay, Matilda Ramsay, and Oscar Ramsay.

Although Gordon is one of the most talented and well-known cooks at the present, none of his kids want to follow in their father’s footsteps and become a chef. Only Tilly, his fourth child has so far given some signs of following somewhat in her father’s footsteps.

As an influencer, Tilly is most known for hosting the BBC cookery program Matilda and the Ramsay Bunch on CBBC with her family, which gave rise to the cookbook Matilda & The Ramsay Bunch: Tilly's Kitchen Takeover. She has also made several guest appearances on her father's television programs, reports Standard.

After his daughter’s brilliant performance in Strictly Coming Dance, the Kitchen Nightmares star admitted that he wouldn't mind switching from the kitchen to the glitzy ballroom, according to Radio Times.

Tilly and Nikita Kuzmin, her professional dancer, made it to the eleventh week of the BBC series before they were eliminated. Despite Tilly's success, Gordon worries that his enormous feet will prevent him from performing the perfect salsa.

In an interview on The Jonathan Ross show, he jokingly confessed:

‘I would love to dance but I’ve got a huge problem – I’ve got size 15 feet.'

He continued that he would 'love to learn how to dance':

‘Tilly did it last year and she was amazing. I don’t know. Those dancers are amazing. I’d love to learn how to dance properly.’

Gordon and Tilly have co-starred on Gogglebox

Fans may see the brilliant chef substitute a Waltz for his Beef Wellington or a Rumba for his famous Lamb Chop Rack. According to the Mirror, Gordon and his daughter Tilly have already collaborated, co-starring on their sofas for Gogglebox.

The father-daughter pair was featured on the Channel 4 show Stand Up To Cancer, which was broadcast in October. He even cameos in many of her TikTok videos, much to the joy of her admirers.
