Gordon Ramsay's 'protégé' who was MasterChef: The Professionals semi-finalist is sacked after 'explosive incident'

GORDON Ramsay's star chef has reportedly been sacked after an "explosive incident" in the kitchen.

The Daily Mail reports Matt Worswick, 28, was suddenly fired after only seven months working at Ramsay'sSavoy Grill.

He reached the semi-finals of Masterchef: The Professionals in 2010 before winning aMichelin star aged 26 ashead chef at Glenapp Castle in Scotland.

A source told the paper: "We are all shocked.

"There was an explosive incident in the kitchen and then Matt announced he was leaving."

Matt was said to be the TV chef's protégé – but confirmed he's parted ways with the restaurant in a statement.

The Sun has reached out to Gordon's rep.

"My journey has come to an end at the Savoy," Matt said.

"I'd like to thank all the staff, past and present, for all their hard work and dedication. 

"I'd like to wish Gordon Ramsay all the very best and continued success for the future."

It's claimed Gordon, 55, was abroad at the time of the alleged incident.

The potty-mouthed chef accidentally sparked a backlash as he showed off a turkey wellington dish available at his restaurants as a festive alternative.

He was mercilessly mocked for serving up gravy that looks like "dishwater" – as fans blasted: "It's too watery."

One raged: "Call that gravy? It looks like dishwater."

"Come on man – get a grip, that's not gravy," another said.

A third blasted: "That brown watery substance supposed to be gravy?"

The dish features on a wider Christmas day menu which costs a whopping £150 a head.

Those who choose to dine at his eatery in London's Savoy – where Matt worked – will face an astonishing bill of £275 each over the festive season.

A Christmas dinner with all trimmings as part of a six-course lunch will set each guest back by almost £300.
