Chef, Gordon Ramsay, 44, has been admitted to The Priory Clinic for observation following his recent trauma in Costa Rica. Readers may remember that Gordon was in Costa Rica recently, filming for a new series on fishing.
Gordon and his crew were sighted by fisherman who were illegally catching sharks, off the coast of Costa Rica, in order to remove and sell their fins for sale to restaurants world-wide. The fisherman became extremely irate and doused Gordon with petrol, aiming rifles at him and his crew.
When Gordon returned to England he was a 'basket case', blabbering incoherently, gesticulating wildly and cussing periodically.
His manager told reporters that he had tried to warn Gordon about the dangers of taking on such a reckless, controversial topic.
Gordon, apparently took no heed, telling his manager he would be safe because he was 'loved' all over the world and expected to be welcomed with open arms into the daily lives of the Costa Rican poachers.
In his 'innocence' he hadn't taken into account that:
(a) these fisherman were criminals
(b) these fisherman did not own t.v.s and had never heard of him
It is hoped that Gordon will receive the appropriate treatment and counselling he so obviously needs, at the Clinic which looked after Susan Boyle when she was suffering from exhaustion in 2009.
Gordon will be 'housed' in a different wing of The Priory as his problem is NOT exhaustion but 'sheer ignorance bordering on lunacy', which entails a specialized treatment before the patient (Gordon) can be deemed to be of no danger to himself or persons he works with.
This can be a lengthy process.
Part of his therapy will be looking after the pigs on the Clinic's farm and putting together a cookery book for recipes using only two ingredients.
More on Gordon's condition as we get it.
