Gordon Ramsay risked winding up his Cornwall neighbors by taking his daughter Holly, 22, by car along the beautiful Cornish coast, two years after facing backlash for fleeing to his 4.4million country home pounds sterling during lockdown.
But the chef, 55, put on a defiant display as he enjoyed a ride in his vintage white Porsche with the roof down.
Holly shared a photo of the car parked in front of the hill with the caption: “Fun in the sun”.
The chef previously admitted he regretted not standing up for himself after being called out by locals for moving to his seaside home during the first lockdown in 2020.
He was joined by his wife Tana and their five children Megan, 23, Holly and Jack, both 22, Tilly, 20 and Oscar, two.
The family were accused of ‘bringing the virus from London‘.
In an interview with Radio Times, he said they took “so much shit” from locals.
He said: “God knows why we took so much crap in Cornwall. We used to live there; we just hadn’t been there for a long time.

“We didn’t sneak over there at all. We arrived at the right time and had an absolutely amazing time.”
He said how much he loved spending quality time with his family, explaining, “A time like this – we’ll never come back.
“When the kids started disappearing again, I didn’t want it to stop – as a father, not as a boss.”
Meanwhile, Gordon recently showed off his new platinum blonde as he began filming scenes for his TV show Gordon Ramsay’s Future Food Stars.
Speaking of the second series, the BBC said: “We are very proud of Future Food Star’s attracting a large young audience to BBC iPlayer.
“We begin filming the second series in June and can’t wait for viewers to see what Gordon has in store for the second series.”
