Exclusive: Gordon Ramsay signs nine-year-old to appear on his US show after he sees youngster in net spoof

Gordon Ramsay has signed up a nine-year-old “mini me” to appear on his TV shows… after he saw the youngster’s hilarious impressions of him on the internet.
Ramsay snapped up Felix Light after seeing him scream at waiters, restaurant managers and dinnerladies in F-word rants – carefully bleeped out – in a spoof of his TV show, Kitchen Nightmares.
Complete with floppy blond hair and trademark foul mouth, the angelic schoolboy’s brilliant impersonations have attracted more than two million viewers.
And Ramsay, who was left in hysterics, is now the child’s biggest fan. After watching the clips on YouTube, Ramsay flew Felix from Loughton, Essex, out to Los Angeles and gave the little chef a part on hit show Hell’s Kitchen USA, watched by 15 million people a week and shown in the UK. Felix is also being lined up to appear on Ramsay’s other show, The F-Word.
