Gordon Ramsay regularly leaves people lost for words, mostly over his expletive-ridden outbursts.

But this time around, the celebrity chef has left his fans shocked over his “absolutely ripped” body.

Taking to Instagram with a shirtless photo, Gordon showed off his six-pack while training for an Ironman triathlon in London.

The 51-year-old’s followers praised the chef for his “lean and mean” physique.

“Good lord. Come and swear at me Gordon I’d bloody love it,” one follower commented jokingly.

“Absolute machine of a man,” another said.

Some couldn’t believe how the chef was able to keep his body so toned.

“How do you stay that shredded while cooking tasty food all the time?” one person asked.

Earlier this year, the Hell’s Kitchen star discussed his body overhaul which resulted in a 20kg weight loss.

It was because his wife, Tana, “was not impressed” with his physique at the time.

“I was overweight, 18 stone [over 110kg]. I looked like a sack of sh*t,” he told the Daily Mail at the time. “I look at the pictures and think, ‘How did Tana stay around?’ Because Tana has got better-looking and more gorgeous.

“And there she is, getting in bed with a fat f*ck.”

It was about six years ago in 2012 when he decided to make the change, and he hasn’t looked back since.

But it wasn’t without any struggles – the Michelin star chef used to suffer from severe low self-esteem.

“It was painful,” he told the publication. “I used to look at myself in the mirror and think, ‘Holy sh*t!’ So it was a big wake-up call.”
