Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has reportedly been accused of breaking COVID-19 protocols of self-isolation after traveling to the United Kingdom from the United States to attend his son's Royal Marines ceremony. 

Renowned celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay might have a run-in with the law after allegedly breaking the United Kingdom's COVID-19 protocols. According to a Daily Mail report, Ramsay was accused of breaking quarantine rules after traveling to the United Kingdom from the United States of America. 

The 53-year-old was seen landing at Heathrow Airport last week Thursday, after which he took a helicopter to his $4.9 million mansion in Cornwall. While his entrance into the United Kingdom wasn't against the law, government rules declare that anyone who travels in must self-isolate for 14 days.

However, Ramsay failed to oblige and was seen out and about almost immediately.  The "Hell's Kitchen" host was seen a day after his arrival into the United Kingdom at his son Jack's welcome ceremony to the Royal Marines.

The television chef was seen posing with his son and daughter, and four days after the ceremony, he returned to the United States to continue work. A source close to the chef lamented to the publication about the chef breaking the COVID-19 rules and then said

"He only came home for Jack's ceremony and is already back in the States for work, which doesn't feel at all fair."


The chef shared photos of the ceremony, which he attended with his wife Tana, 46, and their kids Megan, 22, Holly, 20, Matilda, 18, and Oscar, 1 and gushed over his oldest son and proudly praised Jack's induction into the Royal Marines.

In the comments section, former footballer and family friend David Beckham sent his best wishes and love to Jack on behalf of his family. The day after the ceremony, Ramsay was seen at The Porthole Restaurant & Pub in Maine, taking photos with fans.


If found guilty by the government, the celebrity chef would be required to pay a fine of up to $13,000, and if he defaults in paying he might be prosecuted and face spending some time in jail.

The allegations against the award-winning chef come months after neighbors in his Cornwall community became angered when he traveled there with his family to quarantine. 



According to local officials, rules were given to second homeowners to stay away from the community amid the pandemic. Members of the community have reportedly formed a private Facebook group where they rain insults on the chef.

It seems Ramsay is following in the steps of rapper Kanye West who faced backlash over the weekend for flying to London with his oldest daughter North West for a star-studded fashion show.


West and his daughter failed to self-isolate for 14 days as required by the government. Fans on social media shamed the presidential candidate for being reckless and breaking the rules.
