Gordon Ramsay's wife defends family after lockdown backlash

Gordon Ramsay’s wife Tana has defended her family’s decision to spend part of the national lockdown at their holiday home in Cornwall.

In April, the celebrity chef, his wife and their five children angered locals after they travelled from London to their holiday home despite the lockdown rules.

The Sun initially reported that the move irked locals and they had slammed the celebrity chef in a private Facebook group, where they suggested he was an ‘arrogant second homer immune from the virus and any rules’.

Shortly after, Gordon even poked fun at the backlash by joking he had made a burger for his neighbours in an Instagram video.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk about the criticism, Tana explained that spending time in their family home was the most ‘important’ thing.

‘We want to stay safe and help everyone keep safe as much as possible,’ she told us.

‘We spent our time in our home with our family, and you know that that was what was most important.’


Tana and Gordon share five children together – Megan, their twins Holly and Jack, Matilda and in 2019 the couple greeted their youngest son Oscar James Ramsay.

The 46-year-old also recently opened up about the trauma of losing her unborn child in 2016.

‘I have to be honest when it happened to me, I found it really hard when people would talk to me and not mention it because it was like it never happened,’ she explained.

‘All I wanted to do was talk about it with friends, with family, with anyone who asked me about it because it was incredibly hard.

‘You go from having a baby kicking inside of you to suddenly it’s not there, and it was a really hard experience.’

‘I’d always breastfed all of my children, and then three days after it happened, I suddenly felt an aching in my chest and realised that it was my body getting ready to breastfeed, and there was no baby,’ Tana added.

‘Gordon was amazing, and he’s always been one to talk about everything and he was very good at sort of talking it out of me and never making me feel that, “Oh, you know, maybe we shouldn’t talk about it”.’
