Gordon Ramsay has apparently admitted his worst nightmare - that one of his children might tell him they're vegetarian. The TV chef, who once fed meat to some veggies on his shows, tells the Daily Mirror: "My biggest nightmare would be if the kids ever came up to me and said, 'Dad, I'm a vegetarian'. "Then I would sit them on the electric fence and electrocute them," he joked. The 40-year-old star says he and his wife Tana keep their children - Megan, eight, seven-year-old twins Jack and Holly, and Matilda, five, very disciplined. "Tana's from a school teacher background and I swear to God she makes Nanny McPhee look like a pussycat," he revealed. "For me, there's no script when you've got children. You've got to support them, be a father figure and also have a level of affection." Gordon, who has nine London restaurants, also revealed he's picked up a few celebrity pals during his career - including David Beckham. "David's quite a talented chef," he said. "He knows cooking and he loves it. I'd like to get him in the kitchen, definitely."
