GORDON Ramsay was taken aback after a member of the public mistook him for rival chef Jamie Oliver.
The Hell’s Kitchen star was shocked when a workmen for Tideway, the company delivering the 25km Thames Tideway Tunnel, mixed him up with Oliver.
Ramsay, 54, filmed part of the conversation exchange with the employee as the foul-mouthed chef can be heard shouting “what the f**k”.
The clip shows the TV star, from Johnstone, Renfrewshire, pulled up in his SUV and having a conversation with the man wearing a hard hat.
Ramsay asks: “What’s my name?” “
The workman cheerfully replies: “Jamie Alega” to which the chef exclaims “No, not Jamie Alega, Jamie Oliver.”
The man then says: “Jamie Oliver.”
The temperamental chef replies: “Yes, say my name” before singing part of a Destiny’s Child hit saying: “Say my name, say my name” in a high pitched voice.
Ramsay then starts laughing before looking directly into the camera, saying “What the f**k”.
Ramsay shared the footage, hash-tagged “mistaken identity”, on his TikTok page yesterday (THUR).
He wrote: “It’s @jamieoliver reporting for duty !! What the ?!???? #comedy #mistakenidentity.”
The hilarious clip has been viewed over 490,000 times, with 64,000 likes and hundreds of comments from social media users in stitches.
@mr_larcom said: “That time you got mistaken for a famous chef” followed by a crying with laughter emoji.
@Sam_biggart21 said: “No, Jamie Oliver isn’t nearly as good as Gordon.”
@WillieLump said: “Ha! And you thought you were a famous chef.”
@Margarita said: “He’s keeping you humble.”
While @StevenThew added: “This is an insult to Beyonce.”
Ramsay and Oliver have been sparring partners for over a decade.
Bank Balance host Ramsay brutally compared Australian journalist Tracy Grimshaw’s appearance to that of a pig.
Oliver jumped to her defence, saying: “Aussies aren’t forgiving.
“Once you’re gone, you’re gone.It’s never good to criticise a woman, especially when they’re loved by their country and you do it on national television.”
In 2017, Ramsay repeatedly mocked Oliver during his week-long stint of hosting The Nightly Show.
The straight-talking chef made jokes at Jamie’s expense, calling him “fat” and criticising his restaurants.
