Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is known for being rough with cooking show contestants and tough in the kitchen, but now news of his softer side is making headlines. Ahead of his new show, “Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back,” he’s partnered with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which challenged him to grant 24 wishes for children with critical illnesses in just 24 hours.
The chef accepted the challenge and reached out to other celebs like Katy Perry and James Corden to not only reach the goal to grant wishes to 24 kids, but they blew past that and helped make 32 wishes come true. And while the experience was amazing for the little ones, it made quite an impression on Ramsay, too.
"Getting a chance to meet these incredible kids and seeing their strength and understanding their excitement is mind-blowing," Ramsay says. "They think that they've had their wish come true but if only they knew that they've made my day, in fact they've made my year. That's how important it's been."
