Many people have tried tackling the dark underworld of cocaine production, distribution and possession. It’s a subject that requires a cool, calm and collected manner at all times.
So it makes total sense that ill-tempered and very sweary Gordon Ramsay is headed to South and Central America to meet assassins and smugglers in a new documentary titled Gordon On Cocaine.
One of the world's worst kept secrets - cocaine being rife in the restaurant industry - gave him the inspiration to link up with ITV for the project.
Ramsay said: “I’ve wanted to understand the ‘world’ of cocaine ever since I lost one of my chefs at my flagship restaurant in Chelsea and I wanted to learn why it’s becoming such an epidemic not just globally, but specifically in the culinary world.
“I dare anyone to watch this series and not think again about taking cocaine.”
The show, split into two parts, is running during ITV’s crime and punishment season, which will also feature programming with Ross Kemp.
