Gordon Ramsay plans to make a second series of his show teaching convicts how to cook in women’s prison.
The first series of Gordon Behind Bars, was filmed at HMP Brixton, where he taught inmates how to cook and set up a bakery business.
It garnered an audience of around 2.9m when it debuted in the UK and despite admitting how difficult the series was to create, Ramsay, based on those numbers no doubt is ready to do it again but this time he is considering going to a woman’s prison.
Ramsay said, “There is an idea about going into a ladies’ prison which would be interesting”.
“And I would definitely go back to Brixton.”
The foul mouthed celebrity chef has received support from the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, who wants to get more prisoners working and reportedly asked Ramsay how it was going when they met up at a charity event.
Ramsay said, “He asked how it was going and I said that it was tough and that I found it harder than I had expected,”
“We have sent the business plan in and are following everything up because it needs supporting.”
“Think of all of those people in prison and barely ten per cent are getting anywhere near work. I believe there are massive missed opportunities in prisons.”
