Gordon Ramsay accused of breaking coronavirus rules as he fails to quarantine after US trip

TV chef Gordon Ramsay has been accused of breaking quarantine rules after he jetted into UK from America to attend son Jack's Royal Marines ceremony.

The 53-year-old flew into London's Heathrow Airport from the US last Thursday and then flew by helicopter to his Cornwall home, according to new reports.

However, MailOnline have claimed that a mere 24 hours after his arrival home Gordon shared photos from his eldest son's graduation from the marines.

Currently, government guidelines state anyone flying to the UK from US need to self-isolate for 14 days.

A source also told the publication that Kitchen Nightmares star only stayed in the UK for four days before jetting back to the States for work commitments.

The insider claims: "Gordon did not adhere to Covid-19 rules by isolating upon his return from America.

"He only came home for Jack's ceremony and is already back in the States for work, which doesn't feel at all fair.

"First it was Kanye West and now Gordon, celebrities shouldn't be let off for breaking regulations, and therefore putting others at risk."

Last Friday, the celebrity chef branded himself the "proudest father" as he shared snaps of him with Jack, 20, at his ceremony.

The pair were joined by Gordon's wife Tana, 46, at the milestone occasion and their other children; Megan, 22, Jack's twin Holly, 20, Matilda, 18, and toddler Oscar.

Posting from the barracks, Gordon said: "Can't tell you enough how proud I am of this young man.

"Jack Ramsay you've made me feel like the proudest father today congrats on joining @RoyalMarines what amazing achievement."

The Royal Marines, a division of the Navy, are among the most respected fighting forces in the world.

The recruitment process to join is among the longest and most gruelling in the world, lasting a staggering 32 weeks.

His appearance at Jack's service comes after the celebrity chef was photographed with staff at The Porthole Restaurant & Pub in Maine on Saturday, September 19.

According to wokq.com, Gordon was spotted again at the same location two days later on Monday, September 21.

The TV star was than spotted by a fan at Suomi Home Bakery in Michigan on Thursday September 24, who shared a photo of him on Facebook at the time.

Local press in Maine reported Gordon was visiting the States for his National Geographic channel show, Uncharted, which sees him travelling around the globe for unique cuisine.

Although self-isolation exemptions can be granted for certain work reasons, MailOnline claims Gordon only returned to the UK for Jack's Marines service. Gordon's rep had no comment when contacted by The Sun Online.

Currently, the UK requires those travelling from the US to quarantine for 14 days.

If travellers fail to adhere to the government guidelines, they could face a fine of up to £10,000 and prosecution should they fail to paid the fine on time.
