DJ Steve Allen was convicted this week for calling Strictly Come Dancing contestant Tilly Ramsay a “chubby little thing.”
His comment on the 19-year-old CBBC presenter led to calls for his resignation from LBC, where he worked for 42 years, amid accusations of “big shame”.
Responding on Instagram, Tilly wrote, “I won’t tolerate people who think it’s okay to publicly examine anyone’s weight. “

His father, a famous chef, Gordon especially likes to use the F word himself – and it’s “F” for “fat.”
Whether it’s insulting professional rivals like Jamie Oliver to contestants for his TV shows – and even a presenter – Ramsay is no stranger to commenting on someone else’s weight.

THE AUSSIE TV HOST WHO IS “A PIG”
In 2009, Ramsay made the mistake of targeting misogynistic slurs at Australian TV host Tracy Grimshaw.
Speaking at the Melbourne Good Food and Wine show, he showed a forged photo of a naked woman, with multiple breasts and a pig’s face, announcing that she represented Miss Grimshaw, who had interviewed him the night before.
“It’s Tracy Grimshaw,” he said. – I had an interview with her yesterday, damn it. She needs to see Simon Cowell’s Botox doctor.
The Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister of Australia criticized him. Ramsay then appeared on TV to offer a lengthy apology, saying, “It was never a personal attack. It was done in a pleasant way. I put my mom on the phone this morning, she was disgusted. If someone had called my wife a pig, I would have turned off their lights.
Chief Ramsay has insulted Tracy Grimshaw’s appearance in the past. Speaking at the Melbourne Good Food and Wine show, he showed a falsified photo of a naked woman, with multiple breasts and a pig’s face, announcing that she represented her.
LE RESTAURANT ‘FAT COW’
In 2012, Ramsay opened a restaurant in Los Angeles called The Fat Cow. His PR team tried unconvincingly enough to deny that it was an insult, saying, “Cow is something that we eat all the time, but don’t like, so the restaurant title is just a nod to that. “
A few months earlier, Ramsay had called Hell’s Kitchen candidate Sara Horowitz a “fat cow” on camera. He also called her a “stupid little slut with a big mouth”.

MARCO PIERRE BLANC
Ramsay has a poisoned relationship with Marco Pierre White. Early in his career he worked under White at the Harveys Restaurant in Wandsworth, South West London. White said in his autobiography that he “broke” Ramsay and reduced him to tears. Years later, the two showed up on the same day for lunch at Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck restaurant – and Ramsay criticized White’s weight.
White said Ramsay walked up to him and said, “You big ass ******. I always wanted to call you that. White commented, “I said,” Is this the best you can do? ”
In 2017, Ramsay spent a week as the host of the short-lived The Nightly Show on ITV. At the end of his stay, he read a bogus excuse to compete with Jamie Oliver.
He ran: ‘I just want to say I’m sorry. I’ve been tough on you this week, Jamie.
“I called you fat, I criticized you in your restaurants, I called you fat, I said you like sex in prison and I called you fat.
– What I said was hurtful, Jamie. I don’t want to make you cry. The last thing I want to do is look at your pretty face and think: fat, fat, fat.
Oliver replied, “I was doing television years before him, so maybe five years ago that would have bothered me. He has four kids and I have five kids and I don’t want to make fun of some of them dad on TV. It’s not good.’
Ramsay said in 2012 that Oliver “needed a good ****** wash” and added that he was not surprised that his Food Revolution show was canceled after two seasons of airing in America.
“You have to be very careful about telling Americans to eat healthy,” Ramsay said. “If you are not in the best shape yourself, then you have to be very careful. “

THE ‘FAT IDIOT’ ON KITCHEN NIGHTMARES
Ramsay was asked to attempt to save The Granary restaurant in Fareham, Hampshire, in 2007. Owner Nigel Nieddu was called a “big idiot” by Ramsay during the show.
Mr. Nieddu said: “It has been the most stressful week of my life. If I still had time, I would not participate in the program. I’ve never spoken to someone like this in my life. I’m not happy to be humiliated. My friends are calling and laughing that I’m called a big idiot, but that’s how I’ll be known now – I’m the big idiot from The Granary.
THE CHIEF WHO HAD THREE HEART ATTACKS
Hell’s Kitchen chef Robert Hesse dropped out of a series of the show after suffering from stress and returned the following year.
Ramsay called him “fat ****” and Hesse, who was obese, had three heart attacks before a gastric bypass surgery that helped him lose more than 30 stones.
