Gordon Ramsay isn't just tough with the competitors on his reality show, "Hell's Kitchen."
The chef known for being quite ... vocal ...recently admitted that he has been keeping close tabs on his teen daughter, Megan.
According to E!, Ramsay told British talk show host Jonathan Ross on his show that he bugged his teen's room. And not only did he spy on her and her boyfriend's homework sessions, but he enlisted her younger brother, Jack's, help in doing so.
"I've been a bit naughty over the last couple of weeks because I got Jack a little Go-Pro, one of those little secret cameras," Ramsay said. "So I said to him, ‘Look mate, here's 20 quid, go and target your big sister's room and put that camera right at the top left-hand side of the wardrobe.'"
Not totally shocking given how controlling and focus Ramsay appears to be on his reality shows. It would appear to have a willing assistant in son Jack, who along with his twin sister Holly, 13, Megan and Matilda, 11 are Ramsay's four children with wife Tana.
"My son said, 'Daddy, Megan had a friend around yesterday called Alex, but it wasn't a girl, it was a guy.' I said, 'Jack, get me his cell number now.' So he sneaks to Megan's room, and two minutes later I'm on my cell," Ramsay said.
4:08 p.m. UPDATE: According to Ramsay's rep, the comments made on the "Jonathan Ross Show" were made in jest.
"It was nothing more than a joke he made up on the show to poke fun and embarrass Megan who was sitting in the audience with her boyfriend," his rep said.
