I have a long term antipathy towards Gordon Ramsay. I don’t like bullies and Ramsay has always come across as one. Of course, some say it’s all an act for TV. So, a man adopts a persona of an unpleasant gobshite bully? That may actually be more detestable than actually being a bully. I’m pleased we seem to have managed to export him to America. And, no, as part of any UK/US trade deal we don’t want chlorinated chicken in return for him. We really don’t.
That said, I’d forgotten just how much I despise Ainsley Harriott - who may not be too well known on the western side of the Atlantic (although his Wiki page says he did some TV work in the States in the early 2000s). But, after a goodly number of years absence from British TV, he’s back with a new series - “Ainsley’s Caribbean Kitchen”. Harriott’s on-screen persona has always irritated. That persona is of a caricature black man - affecting a Caribbean accent for the occasional sentence or two (he’s a Londoner born & bred) and regularly demonstrating his, erm, “natural rhythm”. Just fucking cook, man. Although his food is pretty crap.
So, who do you love to hate?
