Angry residents beat Gordon Ramsay for moving to his £ 4.4 million mansion in Cornwall during the coronavirus outbreak.
Nearby villages are reportedly furious with the chief, 53, after moving there with his family to isolate amid the ongoing pandemic.
It’s because locals in the West Country have called for tougher measures against people fleeing to their vacation homes during the coronavirus pandemic.
Second home owners have been accused of sneaking into the area in the middle of the night, and local authorities have now requested that roadblocks be built to prevent people from getting into tourist hot spots this weekend.

According to The sunvillagers are concerned that Gordon has taken the virus from London and wants him “from Cornwall” and has even threatened to reveal his address if he does not leave.
In reports the newspaper saw, local residents expressed frustration in a Facebook group called You shouldn’t be here.
One user wrote, “The big bastard has to take himself and his family out of Cornwall.”
Another said, “Wealthy second-homers think making a few pounds means they’re immune to the virus and any rules. They are arrogant in these best times, this has shown how bad some of them are. ‘

A resident accused Gordon of ignoring government contracts to remain in his primary location.
They wrote, “He was wandering around the shops like nothing’s wrong.”
MailOnline has contacted a Gordon representative for comment.
The Telegraph also reported that Selaine Saxby, a North Devon MP, had expressed concern to ministers that second-home owners sneak into their properties to get away.
She warned that if people continue to ignore the rules implemented by the British government, the local service could be flooded.
She said: “I am deeply disappointed with reports I heard over the weekend about the continued arrival of second homeowners in darkness across the country to avoid roadblocks, and I raised this issue directly with the police “.
So far, there have been 6,159 deaths in the UK and more than 55,000 confirmed cases of Covid-19.
London was hit hardest by the outbreak with 1,353 deaths and more than 11,000 cases.
Gordon, his wife Tana and their five children have lived on the Cornish coast since the outbreak.
The businessman recently admitted that his extended family time has turned out to be anything but relaxing as he constantly cooks for his bulky offspring.

In an interview with Capital FM’s Roman FM, the famous chef said, “Being stuck in my house with these five starving kids is a living nightmare. Can you please tell me when all this will end?
“Every day is the same. I am the resident’s kitchen door and work with my fingers to the bone. I honestly cooked more food in the past ten days than in the past ten years of my career. ‘
The TV personality revealed that he is working around the clock for Megan, 22; twins Holly and Jack, 20; Tilly, 18, and son Oscar, who turned one on Saturday.
He said, “As soon as I get up in the morning, I go to the local butchers to buy some meat for dinner. When I get home, I immediately make breakfast.

“Then I’m back at the stove to cook lunch. After they’ve gulped down their junk, I try to take a quick flight every day to get away, and then I’m back in the kitchen making another bl ** dy dinner.
“I swear I have blisters on my bl ** dy hands from cooking so much.”
But while the star shared his tongue-in-cheek hold with Roman, he also said that spending time at home has brought many benefits to the family.
“We eat so well,” he explained. “Now that I have all the time in the world, I have the chance to make even more effort.
“We’ve had some of the best curries of our lives, and I’ve been able to put together some fantastic new recipes. So I guess it’s not really that bad. ‘

Gordon revealed last month that he would do his bit to stop the spread of the disease by shutting down all his 13 British restaurants in accordance with government procurement.
Gordon posted a statement on social media, writing, “To all of our Gordon Ramsay family, friends and colleagues.

“In this time of great uncertainty, we hope you all pay attention to each other and stay as safe as possible.
“As the situation changes on a daily basis, the focus should be on the health and safety of our employees, guests and the community and to contribute to slowing the spread of the virus. From Saturday 21 March 2020, all our restaurants in London will close temporarily. ‘
He added, “While we don’t know when we will reopen, we do know that we will support each other in this terribly challenging time, but we will endure this stronger than ever!”
“Huge love and thanks to our wonderful employees in the restaurants for all their passion and support. I really hope we get back together very soon. Gordon. ‘
