Gordon Ramsay was a huge hit with audiences when he appeared in the premiere of MasterChef: Back to Win on Monday night as a guest judge.

But the 53-year-old celebrity chef was left slightly red-faced when he made a terribly awkward gaffe while praising competitor Dani Venn on her curry dish.

After explaining that Sri Lanka was a very special place to her because she’d met her husband on the island, Dani presented the judges with her tasting plate featuring a mud crab curry, pineapple curry and some homemade roti and sambal.

Gordon and the other judges were impressed at how authentic the dishes tasted.

‘Dani, you blew us away with that authenticity. Whatever happens, stick close to that Sri Lankan husband of yours,’ Gordon gushed.

Dani then awkwardly revealed that her husband Chris Burgess wasn’t from Sri Lanka- he was from New Zealand.

‘Oh, he’s not Sri Lankan… I met him in Sri Lanka… He’s a kiwi,’ she said.

The cringeworthy moment didn’t go unnoticed by eagle-eyed Twitter fans. 

‘Oh he’s not Sri Lankan… awkies,’ one viewer Tweeted.

Another added: ‘That awkward moment when Gordon Ramsay assumes your husband’s ethnicity’.  

But all was forgiven when Dani’s dish was so impressive, that Gordon went on to award her with the season’s only immunity pin. 

A huge advantage, the pin can be used as a ‘get out of jail free card’ if Dani finds herself in the bottom of the competition.
