Future Food Stars start date

Gordon Ramsay’s Future Food Stars starts on BBC One on Thursday, 31 March at 9PM.

Episodes continue weekly on TV as well as online via iPlayer.

A teaser from the BBC reveals: “Gordon’s always been at the cutting edge of the food industry, and he’s prepared to put his money where his mouth is by backing the winner with an investment to take their idea to the next level.”

“This isn’t a man who suffer fools, and Gordon will push all 12 candidates to their limits through a series of relentless challenges inspired by his highly successful career.


“Being the last entrepreneur standing will win them a life-changing reward. They just need to survive Gordon Ramsay – the only angel investor who’ll put them through hell…”

In the opening episode, Gordon invites his entrepreneurs to Cornwall, where he shocks them with a high-pressure individual challenge in which they must overcome their fears and put their faith in him.

Gordon also wants to see how they work in a team using the finest local produce, so challenges them to run food shacks on a beach. The teams must show that they can meet Gordon’s exacting standards and scrutiny.

Finally, they come face-to face with Gordon as he grills them on their performance this week. Only the ones who impress will continue on this epic adventure.

Gordon said: “Future Food Stars is about finding some of the most exciting, emerging food-and-drinks businesses that have been created in the UK.

“Especially on the back of the devastating two years with the pandemic, Future Food Stars will give someone the chance to focus and develop some exciting business ideas that have the potential to absolutely explode over the next 18 months.”


He added: “I’ve spent the last two decades investing in talent and restaurants, it’s in my blood.

“To expand beyond restaurants and be in that food and drink lifestyle space, looking at what we’ve got in the competition, and how talented these individuals are, I’m equally as excited to invest in them as I would in any restaurant or hotel, anywhere in the country.”
