UK: Gordon Ramsay has threatened his children with electrocution, if they ever dared turn vegetarian.

The TV chef - famed for his tyrannical methods in the kitchen - said it would be his "worst nightmare" if his children turned their backs on eating meat, and joked that he would electrocute them as a punishment.

Gordon teasingly told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "My kids are very naughty. So when they don't do their homework I take them out and put them on the electric fence I keep my two lambs in and give them a little jolt.

"It's only a little tingle, they spell brilliantly now.

"My biggest nightmare would be if my kids ever came up to me and said, 'Dad, I'm a vegetarian'. Then I would sit them on the fence and electrocute them."

'The F Word' star Gordon, 40, has four children with his wife Tana - three daughters, Megan, eight, Holly, seven, and Matilda, five, and one son, Jack, who is Holly's twin.

The foul-mouthed celebrity chef also revealed his close friend, footballer David Beckham, is a dab hand in the kitchen as well as being an ace on the pitch.

Gordon said: "David's quite a talented chef. He knows cooking and he loves it. I'd like to get him in the kitchen, definitely."
