Scottish superstar chef Gordon Ramsey gave comedian Frank Skinner a good scare on last week’s The Nightly Show, in his second-to-last appearance on the controversial show screened on British television channel ITV.
In addition to his culinary skills, the Chelsea restaurateur, whose restaurants have been awarded sixteen Michelin stars in total, is also well known for his temper and vocabulary which more often than not includes a lot of swearing.
In shows like Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, The F Word and MasterChef, the Scottish Lowlands native has made a trademark of being angry and swearing at people, while always staying deadly serious about his cooking.
Ramsay is also known for taking a lot of pleasure out of being brutally honest about people’s cooking efforts on Twitter, where he never pulls any punches and always says it as he sees it. But now he has taken it up a notch when he played a heart-stopping prank when writer, radio and TV presenter and comedian Frank Skinner took a part in The Nightly Show.
Making a fruit salad for the comedian, 50-year-old Ramsey put his hand into a blender, which was then turned on, spraying blood from his hand everywhere.
After it happened, Ramsay fell to the ground while clutching his hand, as members of staff swirled around him while Skinner remained in complete shock.
The studio audience played a big part in pulling the prank off, as Gordon had told them what he would be doing and asked them to bring their best acting game.

“Some of you might think this is a joke but not from where I’m sitting,” Skinner says while Ramsey rolls on the floor pretending to be in pain.
Ramsay then stands up and says ‘gotcha!’, not able to restrain his delight at pulling the prank off.
Gordon Ramsay made his last appearance as the host of The Nightly Show on the 31st of March. The chat show was envisioned as an attempt to gimmick American late-night talk shows such as The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and The Late Late Show with James Corden, with a notable difference being that the host changes every five episodes.
The Scottish cook was its fifth host, and three more celebrities are going to try their hand at hosting it before the first season ends in late April. The continuation of The Nightly Show for a second season is highly uncertain due to it receiving a negative critical reception.
