A restaurant owner has said that she became 200 pound-a-night prostitute after she worked with Gordon Ramsay on his TV show.
Rachel McNally was a contestant on Ramsay’s show Kitchen Nightmares programme in 2007.
Her eatery Piccolo Teatro that cooked vegetarian meals in Paris was losing around 70,000 pounds a year.
Super chef Gordon Ramsay promised to turn the restaurant’s ‘horrendous food’ and ‘bad attitude’ into a success.
But Rachel’s eating joint was shut down leaving her penniless.
“Gordon did absolutely nothing for me, so instead I decided to swap my restaurant for life as a hooker. We were losing something like £6,000 a month and just couldn't balance the books. It became more chaotic after he turned up,” the Sun quoted her as saying.
"He was a right flirt, showing as much interest in impressing me as sorting out the kitchen. Every time we went for a drink or took time off he'd be leering - or moaning about something,” she added.
After Rachel sold her eatery in the court she took a flat at Montparnasse.
“I enjoy sex and was turned on by the idea of selling my body for money, so it wasn't much of a hassle,” said Rachel.
“It’s a great way to make money. I charge around £200 a time, and getting business is no problem at all. If they have any kinky suggestions, I might charge a bit more,” she added.
Rachel has even used her nightmare TV appearance to get business by sending videos to potential clients.
