Gordon Ramsay denies claims by Cornwall local that he ‘ran a red light and almost caused an accident’ during bike ride

Gordon Ramsay has slammed claims that he “ran a red light” while out on his bicycle and “almost caused an accident”.

The celebrity chef, 53, who has been in lockdown with his family at his stunning home in Cornwall had previously faced backlash for leaving London to head to the coast.

One local has now alleged to The Sun that Gordon had “nearly caused a nasty accident” while out on a bike ride earlier this week, a claim he has denied.

They told the publication after sharing a photo of the father-of-five on his journey: “I was delivering some shopping to my daughter and this t**t decides to go through a red light at Trewornan Bridge.

"Very nearly could have been a nasty accident as a car was coming the other way who had to slam on his brakes!

"I didn’t realise it was him at first, he was travelling with another man and a lady. The other man also went through the red light, but the lady stopped at the red light."

Representatives for the Kitchen Nightmares star denied the alleged incident had happened when contacted by OK! online, saying the man’s claims were “nonsense”.

Gordon revealed he had been on a 26.2mile bike ride on Sunday after missing out on the London Marathon, which had been scheduled to take place prior to the coronavirus pandemic.

Gordon is spending lockdown in his £4.4 million house in Cornwall. The famed TV chef, his wife Tana Ramsay and some of their children have moved down to their coastal home amid the current lockdown period.
