ITV orders Gordon, Gino and Fred's Great Christmas Roast

This 75-minute Christmas special features two teams comprised of several famous faces, as they work against the clock to serve a spectacular festive banquet for some of the heroes of 2017.

Gordon, Gino and Fred go above and beyond as they serve members of the public and emergency services who risked their lives during some of 2017’s tragic events.

Ramsey said, “It’s going to be a lot of fun, but the real prize will be the privilege of cooking a fantastic feast and serving up three stunning courses to some truly deserving diners”.

This slow-starting series is both beautifully shot and engagingly presented.

The show centres around the ways food is prepared around the world and the role that food, and eating, impact us on a social, cultural and personal level. Each of the four episodes is named after one of the classical elements (earth, air, fire and water) and examines how these four elements form the basis of every meal that we eat.
