The Multi-Michelin starred chef slated the town during an episode of his new BBC One quiz show called Bank Balance.  During the episode, a contestant mistakenly names Falkirk as one of five cities in Scotland. Gordon, who was born in Scotland, replied: “Falkirk is not a city. It’s a s***hole, I swear to God.”

The TV chef is well known for his potty mouth. However, the cheeky comment hasn’t gone down too well on social media. 

Many people criticised Gordon’s brutal opinion of Falkirk on Twitter. 

One Twitter user wrote “@GordonRamsay calling my hometown of Falkirk a ‘s***hole’. You owe the people of Falkirk an apology”

Another added: “If you’ve not been in the town in the past 10 years then you cannot judge Falkirk”

Some agreed with the TV chef: “Aye, he’s right …it is a f****** s***hole.”

Whereas other residents took the comment with a pinch of salt. 

One Twitter user replied: “I love living here. My friends are mainly from Falkirk and Bo’ness and I’ve moved around a lot over the years but ended up back here. Great scenery for walks nearby, decent neighbours, historic places.”

Bank Balance is a new high pressured game show hosted by Gordon Ramsay. 

Contestants answer various questions and place different sizes of gold bars on a balance board.

The more bars they manage to balance, the more cash they are on track to win – up to £100,000.

Some BBC viewers struggled to understand the rules and tweeted their frustration.

One said: “This is so slow and needlessly complicated but Gordon Ramsay is surprisingly a decent host #BankBalance,” 

However, other viewers praised the quiz show as one fan tweeted: “I’m LIVING for this show! Especially since it’s keeping me amused during this lockdown… thank you, chef!”

Bank Balance continues tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
