Gordon Ramsay fans lost it on social media after the celebrity chef threw a rotten apple at a disgruntled restaurant owner on 24 Hours to Hell and Back.
Wednesday night’s show broadcast on Channel 4 saw the celebrity chef visit the struggling Lowery’s Seafood Restaurant in Tappahannock, Virginia, hoping to improve their fortunes.
In typical 24 Hours to Hell and Back style, Gordon donned a ridiculous disguise to inspect the food, dressing up as an old man to avoid detection – his best outfit since seeing in 2021 as a grandma.
He was served week-old seafood, including crab cakes and a dodgy oyster bowl – safe to say he wasn’t impressed.
A hidden-camera video then revealed expired food, before a staff member admitted the restaurant had a salmonella outbreak.
Things got worse when Gordon revealed his true identity and took a look behind the scenes in the kitchen. Inside, Gordon discovered the staff never washed the equipment, with black mould growing on the walk-in.
The highlight for many though came when Gordon discovered a batch of rotten apples. When the owner gave an excuse Gordon wasn’t happy with, the chef threw the mushy apples straight at him.
The moment brought a big reaction from viewers, with many left in hysterics.
‘Can’t believe [Gordon] just threw rotten apples at a guy on #ToHellandBack’ one wrote.
‘Wow Gordon Ramsay is really levelling up. He just launched a rotten apple at some poor prat in his own kitchen,’ another said.
Despite the apple incident, the restaurant were able to turn things around with Gordon’s help – thank goodness.
Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back airs on Channel 4.
