Delia Smith criticises Gordon Ramsay's swearing
Delia Smith says Gordon Ramsay's swearing is simply unacceptable.
Speaking out about fellow celebrity chefs, Delia notes: 'That's not teaching. I like him when he does his recipes, but I'm not keen on his swearing.
'Jamie is brilliant and has done more than anyone. I enjoy Nigella - she has such a passion for food.
'I don't usually like seeing people eat on TV but when she does it's sexy and it works.'
Speaking to the Radio Times, Delia says she's learnt plenty from her years in front of the camera, and is glad TV doesn't require chefs to be as polished as she used to be.
'Looking back at my career in TV, I wouldn't do the same again. Everything had to be perfect, and that isn't necessarily me.
'Sometimes I was really upset if I spilt a bit from a ladle and they insisted on filming it again. They should have left it in, and sometimes they edited out my smiles. I had this too-perfect image.'
