Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is a well-known name in the food industry today. A restaurateur, television presenter and chef par excellence - Ramsay has an empire of his own. Recently, the celebrity chef came in the news when he was at a private beach in Cornwall filming for his new show 'Future Food Stars'. The shooting directly clashed with a couple's wedding taking place at the same private beach as per reports. Thus, Gordon Ramsay's shooting stirred up a bit of a controversy online. According to a report in The Sun, the couple, Charlie and Laura, claimed that they felt like extras on a gameshow even after working extremely hard to save up for their special day.
Chef Gordon Ramsay then took to Twitter to clarify his stance on the filming of his cooking show. Take a look:

If you believe a Chef can ruin a wedding, make sure to only serve appetizers when you do it the second time around.— Kris N (@wifigotmegoing) July 5, 2021
he didnt exploit them because other events fairly rented it out at the same time, the venue rented the beach out but so did the production crew & the couple have to take this problem up with the venue. The "gate crashing" part is very misleading...— Dino (@nnnnndino) July 5, 2021
"It's a real shame this couple are still complaining, their bill was generously covered, they happily chatted with Gordon on the day, they didn't have exclusive use of the beach and all the other beach goers had a really great time joining in on & off camera,"— Detective Bluto Mindpretzel (@whoislasundjra) July 5, 2021
Sir, you can crash my event whenever you want. I would (almost) kill to try your Beef Wellington and scallops!— Cindy Stephenson (@heavenhillnort1) July 5, 2021
If I ever get married, please come crash it. Call me an idiot sandwich!— BC Moore (@legallybryan) July 5, 2021
Thats what can happen when you get married in a PUBLIC BEACH— Merowknee (@SirenSong91) July 5, 2021
Many people also argued that the couple had not purchased the entire beach, which is why such a clash had happened. The producers of Gordon Ramsay's show also tendered a written apology to the couple. "I am mortified that we affected your special day and I can assure you that it was never our intention to upset you or your guests," read the note. The producers also paid the wedding's costs in full to 'make amends' for the error.
