You think you had it bad as a kid? Think again. During a recent interview on the U.K’s “Jonathan Ross Show,” celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay admitted to bugging his eldest daughter's room with hidden cameras to keep an extra pair of eyes on her, so to speak. The “Hell’s Kitchen” star and his wife, Tana, have four children: Megan, 15, twins Jack and Holly, 13, and Matilda, 11.

Ramsay said on the show, “I've been a bit naughty over the last couple of weeks because I got Jack a little Go-Pro, one of those little secret cameras, so I said to him, ‘Look mate, here's 20 quid, go and target your big sister's room and put that camera right at the top left-hand side of the wardrobe.'”

The restaurateur added, “With three girls it's difficult now. I am absolutely crapping myself.” 

Ramsay asked Jack to install the camera in Megan's room because, according to reports in Independent UK, she and her boyfriend have been spending a lot of time in her room lately.

"Can you imagine that poor guy?" Ramsay said. "But that's one less hand that's going to be crawling all over her."

Megan, who was in the audience during the talk show, has yet to comment on the invasion of privacy. However, we don't think it has strained their relationship too much. On Thursday, Oct. 17, Ramsay tweeted a picture of the two at the Union Street Cafe, captioned:  "Megan & I inspecting the next day MESS @unionstreetcafe OMG." The famous chef, who currently holds 12 Michelin Stars, also spoke about his recently launched television show, “MasterChef Junior,” on which kids compete for an opportunity to be the next big thing in the culinary world.
