Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay will be the host of a new BBC series in which entrepreneurs fight for his financial backing.

12 candidates will present their projects to the infamous Michelin-starred chef and will take part in a series of challenges inspired by Gordon Ramsay's career, and the chef will then put his faith in the winner by investing in their project.

The launch date for the BBC One series has yet to be confirmed, but the chef took to social media to encourage people to apply for a place in the competition: 

Speaking about the project, the chef said: “The future of our food industry has never been more exciting. I can’t wait to search across the country unearthing some of Britain’s most entrepreneurial talent. I’ve spent the last 21 years at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay nurturing, supporting and mentoring some of Great Britain’s greatest chefs and that’s truly why I think investing in the next generation of talented individuals is so important!”
