The new year has just begun, but it has already proven to be lucrative for the famous chef Gordon Ramsay.
We can report that his new BBC series Future Food Stars has been snapped up for airing in the US, even though it won’t air for another couple of months on Blighty.
The show, dubbed FFS, was bought by American broadcaster Fox in a multi-million dollar deal, leaving the cursing Gordon smiling all the way to the bank.
The Apprentice-themed series, which features 12 gourmet entrepreneurs hoping for life-changing investments, has already received the green light for a second series next year on Beeb, with casting agents looking for potential members.
A transatlantic television deal could put Gordon, already valued at £ 160 million, as the new Lord Alan Sugar.
A TV source said: “Gordon is very excited as this is the first time he has had a program like this on television in the UK and also in the US, with Fox and the BBC at the same time – this is a big deal for him. … He is looking forward to filming in the US next year, where he owns a home, and investing in the show’s winning American entrepreneur to expand his American portfolio.
“The producers of Beeb are very excited – the challenges on the show are pretty epic, plus the personalities of the participants are huge. Mix that with American-style cinematography and you feel much bigger and fresher than most TV shows at the moment. “
It’s good to see the chef return to his straightforward self after some viewers complained that he felt too sanitized on his game show Bank Balance, which ran for just one episode last year.
So, world domination. … …

GOLDEN AGE FOR RACHEL
West Side Story star Rachel Zegler is vying for Best Actress at the Golden Globes this weekend.
And after director Steven Spielberg catapulted her to stardom, she’s still adjusting to life in the spotlight. But luckily she has new pals from show business to lean on.
She said: “I live in New York, and it suddenly became my city – I cannot walk to a subway station, see a bus or a taxi without seeing my face. The whole process of West Side Story was inspiring.
“I’ve met so many incredible people and learned how to be in the public eye. Many celebrities offered help and comfort when I needed it, and even a shoulder to cry. “
The Polish and Colombian actress has made the most of the experience of co-star and Hispanic Rita Moreno on set and is proud to be part of a film that tells the story of immigrants in New York.
Rachel told Bustle magazine: “I was poking around in her brain endlessly, probably to her annoyance. She is a pioneer for many Hispanics in this industry.
“In 1961, we were still considered gangsters, drug lords’ girlfriends, or maids. Much has changed, but we are still so far away. “
She added: “(In this film) we can finally tell the story of immigrants. It’s just one step, but it’s a big step. I would consider it a jump. “

“No one forced me, no one twisted my arm, this is in history. … … and I accepted it. “
