Strictly Come Dancing star Tilly is forbidden from asking dad Gordon Ramsay for a lift up and he has tried to instal a mentality of working hard for success in his kids
Tilly Ramsay grew up in a completely different environment to dad Gordon.
The Strictly Come Dancing star, who has two brothers and two sisters, has enjoyed some of the finer things in life and been on lavish holidays.
Whereas foul-mouthed chef Gordon grew up on a council estate in Glasgow, so had a totally different upbringing to his children.
A passion for cooking has always motivated him, rather than a desire to get rich, so he has tried to install the same mentality in his kids.
“They have a completely different life than I did growing up. I worked my arse off to get out of the sh** mess that I grew up in and they’re grateful, they’re not spoilt,” he said.
Whether it be their careers, romantic partners or even where they sit in a plane, Gordon has an opinion on what his brood are doing.

In 2017, Gordon revealed he was giving his youngest kids £50 pocket money a week, while daughter Meg was given double while studying at uni.
It may sound like a lot, but this had to cover all of their expenses, from transport to clothes and mobile phones.
“Meg’s at university and has a budget of £100 a week; the others get about £50 a week and they have to pay for their own phones and their bus fare,” he explained.
“The earlier you give them that responsibility to save for their own trainers and jeans, the better.”
While the Ramsays might have enough money to be waited on hand and foot, Gordon doesn’t want his kids to turn into spoilt brats.
“They tidy up after each and every dinner. It’s a system. It’s important they help set and clear the tables, it’s important they cook, it’s important they do their homework,” he said.

While he’s not forcing them to go into the family business, Gordon has made sure all his children know how to cook for a different reason.
He added: “They all cook as a life skill as opposed to a career. I never want to put that on us on them. I don’t want them with a badge, going into a kitchen with people thinking that’s Ramsay’s daughter or that’s Ramsay’s son.”
For the past four years they have also volunteered at Great Ormond Street hospital.
His older children have selflessly given up their time to help around, clean and spend times with the kids and are certainly are making their dad proud.
Although he has made it very clear what he will do if they ever coming knocking for a job.
Gordon owns a host of restaurants, but it’s not a family affair as he has expressly forbidden his children from asking him for a lift up.
Speaking on US radio, Gordon admitted: “I’m firm, I’m fair and I will give you everything I’ve got to get you to the very top.
“And that’s it, no bulls**t. I take a lot of flak for being straight and honest, but I’m not worried about that f***ing snowflake generation.”
He added: “It’s like not employing the kids. I don’t want the staff thinking, ‘F**k it’s Ramsay’s kid, we can’t tell them off.
“You want to work in this business? You f**k off to another chef, learn something different and come back with something new to improve the business.”
