World-conquering chef and dad-of-five Gordon Ramsay has admitted that his son's Instagram activity 'keeps him up at night'.
TV chef Ramsay and son, Jack, 19, adorned the cover on GQ's 'Like Father, Like Son' series to celebrate Father and Son Day but the famous dad had some stern advice for his son.
"You think that these people following you are fans, I hate that word. They're not, they're f**king strangers."
He then asked Jack: "You don't message people?"
However, Jack was on hand to reassure his famous father that he was more than capable of navigating the online world himself. "I don't think you need to worry, because you've taught me quite well when it comes to real friends, fake friends, you know, how to approach the issue of social media. I've been taught quite well."
Despite the reassurances, Gordon added, "So the one thing that keeps me up at night is Jack messaging individuals on social media."
Jack subsequently added some much-needed perspective to the whole conversation. "You're 19 years old, OK? This cool, good-looking, young girl messages you on Instagram, what are you going to do?"
Knowing there was no reasonable counter-argument, Ramsay decided to throw the kitchen sink. "That could be your mum's friend in disguise. You never know, so just be careful, ok?"
Away from parental worries about their son's Instagram activity, the interview also involved son Jack waxing lyrical of his father's achievements. "I know with you, football was your first love, and it was heartbreaking when that ended, but you know, your relentless nature and drive, you found cooking.
"You didn't stop until you got your three Michelin stars and you're still going."
Asked whether Jack wants to follow in his father's footsteps, he was quick to put that idea to bed with a simple, "No".
