Gordon Ramsay has jumped out of helicopters and gone swimming with sharks.
But the Michelin-starred chef has never been more scared than when Adele walked towards him with a microphone.
In an interview with British GQ published on Wednesday, Ramsay admitted he was terrified when Adele spotted him in the crowd at her Las Vegas show in February.
“I’ll jump out of a helicopter in Guyana. Have sharks the size of Range Rovers over my head in Tasmania. These are the bootcamps I put myself in. And the good thing about shitting yourself in a wetsuit? Nothing comes out,” he said.
“Still, I’m not sure it’s as scary as watching Adele in Vegas and thinking she’s walking over to hand me the mic. Luckily, she just gave me a kiss instead. Thank fuck!”
Ramsay shared a sweet Instagram clip of the moment he shared with Adele during her residency at Caesars Palace.
The clip shows Adele smiling as she sees Ramsay in the audience. Without missing a beat while performing “When We Were Young,” she comes over to say hi and grabs his hand. Ramsay gives her a quick peck on the cheek before she walks away to continue the song.
“Stunning performance,” Ramsay wrote in the caption.
Ramsay was in Las Vegas to celebrate the fifth anniversary of his Hell’s Kitchen restaurant.
When asked about his legacy in the British GQ interview, Ramsay said he can’t escape the lore of his iconic beef Wellington no matter where he is in the world.
“Whether I’m in a tapas bar on the backstreets of Barcelona or the arse-end of the jungle, someone wants to talk to me about my fucking beef Wellington,” he said.
In the same interview, Ramsay revealed that his three daughters are his “toughest critics.”
“They have no problem putting me in my place,” he said.
