Marcus Wareing, 51, has revealed how his relationship with Gordon Ramsay, 55, has changed over the years. The MasterChef: The Professionals judge confessed that joining his fellow chef on MasterChef US would be “pretty cool”.

Speaking to Express.co.uk, Marcus explained he has not seen Gordon in years.

The restaurateur also addressed the notorious feud that first erupted between them while they worked together at Gordon’s restaurant Aubergine in the 90s.

He pointed out that the working relationship resulted in “great things” and that he has “a huge respect” for his former co-worker.

When asked whether he still speaks to Gordon, the chef said: “I’ve not seen Gordon for years – years and years and years. No, we don’t. That’s a long time ago.

“And you know, he’s a big part of my life.

“We worked together. We did great things. I mean, great times, but different eras.

“I actually cannot remember the last time I spoke to him.

“But I have a huge respect for what he does. I think what he does in his restaurant group is amazing. And what he’s doing on television…”

Marcus went on: “He does the American version of MasterChef in the States, you know, and it’s brilliant.

“It’s different, but I think it’s still MasterChef – and it’s great.

“I do my bit here and he does his bit over there.”

The TV star confessed: “I would love to go to the American version.

“Now that’d be pretty cool, wouldn’t it?”

Last month, Marcus revealed the details of his “nasty” fight with Gordon during a conversation with British GQ as part of its regular ‘Out to Lunch’ feature.

He recounted: “Listen, you must understand it was me who started it with Gordon.

“I picked a fight. I no longer wanted to be kept in a corner, moaning and feeling like I had nothing to offer his business.

“So I spoke up. And, well, it got nasty.”

Following the breakdown in their relationship, the pair have only spoken on one occasion since.

Marcus said: “[We met] at 10 Downing Street. It was during the London Olympics and some key people from the food industry were there to meet David Cameron.

“At the end of the day, Gordon tries to leave first then I go, and as they are holding the front door we end up meeting in the long corridor downstairs, just us two, face-to-face.”
