Watch: Gordon Ramsay accidentally swore on The One Show

The BBC has apologised after Gordon Ramsay turned the air blue on The One Show.

The celebrity chef, 55, dropped the s-bomb when he was on the programme on Thursday (24 March).

Ramsay was talking to hosts Alex Jones and Rylan Clark about how he was in the romantic comedy film Love's Kitchen in 2011 and was saying that it was a bit of a “nightmare”.

"We didn’t even go to DVD, it went straight to the Post Office," he joked.

"It was a nightmare, because it was just a shocker."

When the presenters asked why he had those feelings about his silver screen experience, Ramsay confessed: "I was s***.”

Trying to move quickly past the blunder, he went on: “I was sugar, and sweet and it was just bad, I was badly prepped, badly prepped..."
