TV Show & Wine

“F**K yourself.” That’s what the Mirror says Sir Cliff Richard hissed in Gordon Ramsay’s ear. We have consulted our Bible and can find no mention of the F-word therein. Cliff seems to be speaking off the cuff. He is not his usual pious self. And what brought about this change in him? Why, it is none other than foul-mouthed celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay…

The Mirror says that Cliff broke when Gordon pulled a stunt on him.

Having invited the preachy pop star to take part in a wine tasting challenge for his TV show the F Word, Ramsay presented Cliff with a selection of plonk.

“He thought that one of the wines was amazing,” says Gordon. “Of course it was, it was £400 a bottle.”

He then offered Cliff a bottle priced at £12.99. On tasting it, Cliff said: “It’s rubbish! I wouldn’t pay for that. It’s tainted, it tastes like vinaigrette. I’d never even buy that.”

To which Gordon replied: “Cliff, that’s your wine.” Cliff, who owns a vineyard in Portugal and produces “rubbish” under the Vida Nova label, was not pleased to have been caught out. Cue the expletive.

For anyone wishing to try the wine, Gordon says it is now being served in the vinaigrette at one of his eateries…
