Gordon Ramsay is the latest host of ITV's The Nightly Show this week.

And he's promised to bring something "different" to the series after poor ratings.


Viewing figures for the new week night chat show have dropped ever since launch with Dermot O'Leary's stint as host last week the least watched yet.

A record low audience of just 700,000 viewers tuned in to the previous episode on Friday night.

Gordon takes charge this evening and said: "I know I'm going to get a kicking. It can't get any worse. The knives are out. I quite like that. I'm robust. I'm gonna stand strong and take the blows. I have to do something different, that's important."

He added to the Daily Star newspaper: "I watched the first two nights. David Walliams is a national treasure, so to see him get beaten up was a bit unfair.

"All the sarcastic remarks and vicious stuff. But the viewing figures speak for themselves."

Internationally renowned, multi-Michelin starred chef and presenter Gordon is in the hot seat for The Nightly Show from Monday at 10PM.

Gordon hosts the fifth week of live shows which promise a high tempo mixture of topical monologue, studio games, celebrity guests, stand up and VT’s.


ITV describe The Nightly Show as a host a week, a show a day, a laugh a minute and will be recorded ‘as live’ each day.

The Nightly Show airs Monday-Fridays at 10PM on ITV.
