Little Gordon will appear on Hell’s Kitchen

A nine-year-old who does an uncanny impersonation of Gordon Ramsay will appear on Hell’s Kitchen, although it’s not clear if that will air this season or next. Felix Light plays “Little Gordon” in a series of hysterical ads for, a UK job board for hospitality-related positions (watch two of the ads below).

“When I saw the videos of Felix impersonating me I thought it was hilarious. I was with my son Jack, who is eight, and my wife Tana. I said, ‘Look, come and see Daddy when he was little.’ We all sat there laughing our heads off. Felix had me down to a T. I thought we just have to get this kid on Hell’s Kitchen. He’s a star,” Ramsay told the Daily Mirror, which first reported that Little Gordon would appear on the show.

Executive producer Arthur Smith told the New York Post, “We shot it already and it’s hilarious. I can’t tell you how [Little Gordon] is used because it’s a surprise … but people are going to enjoy it.”

The Post reports the appearance “is slated to air next season,” but the Mirror said his “scenes [are] to be screened next month,” which would mean this season, Hell’s Kitchen 5.

Felix Light told the Mirror that Ramsay “was really nice and said how funny he thought the videos were. Filming Hell’s Kitchen was a bit nerve-racking. I have never seen so many cameras before but I loved it.”
