Gordon Ramsay sends his chef Rob Roy Cameron to help short-staffed school dinner lady


Gordon Ramsay sent one of his chefs to help out a short-staffed school dinner lady after she made a plea on live radio. 

The celebrity chef, 55, was a guest on the BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show on Wednesday morning when dinner lady Tina rang in to ask for help as two other kitchen-based staff members were off sick at Edward Peake Middle School in Bedfordshire.

Gordon was quick to answer Tina’s plea and rang one of his cooks, Rob Roy Cameron, who headed over to the educational establishment to lend a hand, and he also put on a cooking demonstration for the pupils.

During a call to the radio, Tina said: ‘I’m cooking here on my own. I’m working here in a school kitchen and my chef has gone off sick, I’ve got another one off with Covid and just wondered if Gordon would help me today, give me a hand after his interview?’

Gordon said: ‘Darling if I did have the time I’d be in Bedfordshire, I promise you, in a heartbeat, but I can send a chef there if you wish?’

Tina replied: ‘Oh yeah, lovely, that’d be great.’
