After admitting that he lost one of his good friends who he worked with to the drug, the chef set about exposing the overwhelming presence of the drug in the United Kingdom.
The 50-year-old bravely took cocaine-exposing wipes to his own kitchen to see if it could be traced “under his roof”.
Gordon was stunned to discover that his staff toilets tested positive for traces of the drug.
What’s more, the public bathrooms also showed high levels for the illegal substance.
