Fiery chef Gordon Ramsay is to return to UK TV and is currently in talks with a series of broadcasters
Gordon Ramsay is to return to UK TV.
The foul-mouthed chef has spent the past few years working in America but is now keen to make his comeback on British screens.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Gordon has launched his own production company to make new scripted and unscripted TV shows.
"He has been away from UK screens for years trying to increase his profile in the US and clear his debts, but he is ready to return now."
The father-of-four used to have a multi-million pound golden handcuffs deal with Channel 4, and starred in shows such as 'Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares' and 'The F Word'.
He is now discussing bringing those shows back, as well as lots of new projects, with a series of broadcasters, sparking speculation he will move to ITV, where he previously hosted 'Hell's Kitchen'.
The source added: "He's negotiating with several broadcasters to bring back 'Kitchen Nightmares' and 'The F Word' and there are lots of new ideas for shows as well.
"This time he wants to keep his options open and probably won't sign an exclusive arrangement like before with Channel 4. He is speaking to ITV, the BBC and Sky and they are all interested to hear his ideas.
"It's a really exciting time and he can't wait to get back to Britain."
Gordon is currently coming to the end of a two-year deal with Fox in the US, and the third series of his show 'Hotel Hell' is currently being aired.
He is also a judge on the America adventure of 'MasterChef'.
