Gordon Ramsay has broken his silence after his daughter Tilly was branded “chubby” by LBC presenter Steve Allen.

Strictly Come Dancing star and CBBC presenter Tilly hit out at Allen, 67, earlier this month after he branded her a “chubby little thing” live on air.

The daughter of TV chef Gordon Ramsay, hit out saying she  “won’t tolerate people that think it’s okay to publicly comment and scrutinise anyone’s weight and appearance”.

Gordan Ramsay breaks silence on daughter Tilly being called ‘chubby’

Now, Gordan has broken his silence on the incident after Allen said Tilly was "chubby" due to "her dad's cooking".

“It made me feel very proud that she stood up and said, ‘I’m not taking this'," he said.

“She is 19-years of age for goodness sake – bursting her a**e off and attending university by Zoom and learning the most extraordinary moves with Nikita [Kuzmin].

“I think it was a breath of fresh air that level of standing up and saying, ‘We’re not going to tolerate that.’”

He added: “It is a very sensitive issue whether you are a girl or a guy.

“I am someone who has always struggled with their weight.

“I have to train, we eat all day. I pick, we graze, we are around food 24/7.

“If we don’t train I’d be 350-400 pounds – so all credit to her.”

Love Island’s Dr Alex hits out at LBC

Former Love Island star Dr Alex George, who was appointed a youth mental health ambassador for the Government earlier this year, criticised Allen’s comments.

He wrote: “I am absolutely horrified by these remarks. It is widely recognised just how damaging such comments about someone’s weight are and the effect they can have on an individual’s mental health.

“We must not only think of the effect on Tilly here, which I can imagine could be significant, but also the potential impact to listeners of the show.”
