Gordon Ramsey has revealed that he had a near death experience which made him think he was a “goner”.
Ramsey was filming ‘The F Word’ in 2008 when he lost his footing while hunting puffins on a cliff in Iceland.
The chef lost his footing and plunged into ice water.
The winter clothes Ramsey was wearing dragged him below the surface.
“I thought I was a goner,” he told The Sun.
“They say cats have nine lives. I’ve had 12 already and I don’t know how many more I’ll have,” Ramsey said.
“I remember thinking, ‘Oh f***.’ My boots and my waterproofs were dragging me down.”
“I’m an extremely good swimmer, but I couldn’t get to the surface. I was panicking and my lungs were filling with water,” he continued.
“When I got to the top after getting my boots off I was dazed and my head was totally numb.”
“It wasn’t until I was on the plane home I realised what a close call I’d had.”
