Hot shot in hot water

It's been a rough couple of weeks for our favourite celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay. One can only imagine the multitude of F words being uttered as the world press focuses less on his cooking and more on his private life.

Ramsay is being accused of cheating on his wife Tana and conducting a seven year affair with "professional mistress" Sarah Symonds.

Sounds a bit like our man Steve Hofmeyr...

Ramsay, who has four children with wife Tana, has so far refused to confirm or deny the allegations.

In other related news it seems women are wild about Ramsay's bad boy image, as he tops a list of "Britain's sexiest male celebrity chefs".

Yes, Flash Gordon has come in at the number one spot leaving Frenchman Jean-Christophe Novelli as the runner-up while Marco-Pierre White took third place.

The results of the poll of 4000 women was as follows:

1. Gordon Ramsay
2. Jean-Christophe Novelli
3. Marco-Pierre White
4. James Martin
5. Jamie Oliver
6. Raymond Blanc
7. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall
8. Gary Rhodes
9. Ainsley Harriott
10. Simon Rimmer

Sexy chefs or slim pickings? What do you think of the top 10?
