Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey is reportedly in talks with ITV to bring the fiery reality show back to our screens.

Gordon Ramsey, 53, was the front man of the first UK series of Hell's Kitchen back in 2004.

The show went on to have three series after he left, starring other well know chefs like Gary Rhodes, Jean-Christophe Novelli and Marco Pierre White.

Now, 16 years after first appearing on Hell's Kitchen, it has been reported Gordon is in talks with ITV to bring the show back.

According to The Sun, a source close to the chef revealed that Gordon has "always wanted to bring Hell’s Kitchen back to ­British TV", and that he "wouldn’t want anyone else to be fronting its revival".

The source told the publication: “Despite only hosting one series in the UK, it’s one of the shows with which he is most closely associated, mainly because his notorious temper produced some of its best moments.

“Despite Gordon making life a misery for many of the celebrities, famous faces are likely to be clamouring to sign up.”
