Gordon Ramsay dressed up as Mrs. Doubtfire on the latest episode of MasterChef Junior is truly costume goals! The 51-year-old celebrity chef was referred to as ‘Grandma Gordon’ on the episode and bore an uncanny resemblance to Robin Williams’ character from the popular 1993 film.
We all know about the wrath of chef Gordon Ramsay, the reason for which he usually makes the headlines. But this time, it’s his costuming abilities that have got us talking.
The Michelin star chef wore the loveable character’s signature blonde wig, reading glasses, pearls and oversized beige cardigan (complete with gold broach), to make his appearance look believable. He also wore a paisley-filled shirt and long, flowy skirt to complete the look. Ramsay was nearly unrecognisable in the get up, shocking even the child contestants on the show.
Twitter fans were quick to point out the resemblance between Ramsay and Mrs. Doubtfire. Many showed their appreciation for how well Ramsay pulled off the look, while others called out on him to act in a sequel to the original film.

Ramsay’s fellow judges, Christina Tosi and Joe Bastianich also dressed up in grandma outfits for the episode. Chef Tosi donned a short-haired grey wig and pant suit along with reading glasses. Whilst, Bastianich looked completely transformed in a black costume, more becoming of a nun than a grandma.
Fans certainly appreciated the effort that the judges had put in to their costumes, in order to believably look like grandmothers on the episode.
