Just days after surplus met Holby City’s demands, last night BBC One announced the bold and exciting golden time revolution…
Yes. Another cooking show.
But, wait, this is a cooking show with a difference. Clear.
The Future Food Star (short – and honest – for the sake of it, let’s call it FFS) begins with Gordon Ramsay hanging from a helicopter off the Cornish coast, about to fall faster than humans Bank Balance view number.
Moments later, he emerged from the sea, in a robust wetsuit that kept him from being compared to Daniel Craig.
“You’re probably wondering why I jumped out of a helicopter,” he said during his welcome party.
Is it because you’re a macho braggart who thinks we’re easily impressed, Gord?
Because you secretly wish you were on SAS: Who Dares Wins instead of FFS: Who Makes The Best Toastie Wins?
Or because someone at the BBC rightly pointed out that this is just another cooking show and suggested you do something spectacular to distract the audience?
The nonsense is not the only thing.
Clever Gordon also infused FFS with some ingredients from The Apprentice and Dragons’ Den. Perhaps the copyright and – you can hope – a sense of shame prevented him from using too much of their other ingredients.
So we had a watery Apprentice/Dragons’ Den soup in which several culinary business owners competed in casual dishes to win a £150,000 investment from Lord Sugar Tits. Just like The Apprentice, a contestant is eliminated at the end of an episode.

Sadly, instead of the boardroom drama of “You’re fired!” and a pointed finger, all we get is Gordon in a restaurant saying to the loser, “I’m sorry. We’re done,” then walks away like someone who just had an argument with their spouse.
Anyone can guess why the wafer format is thin and unattractive.
However, one thing Gordon said got me thinking: “An idea is only as good as the person who has it.”
And then I see the credits end. Host and Executive Consultant: Gordon Ramsay.
I’m sorry, Gordon. Was made.
