Gordon Behind Bars
Gordon Ramsay thinks it is time Britain's prisoners paid their way. There are 88,000 prisoners in the UK and it costs the taxpayer £38,000 to keep each of them locked up for a year. Gordon's given himself six months to set up a successful food business based at the infamous Brixton Prison in south London. His aim: to get prisoners cooking food on the inside, to sell on the outside.
Episode 1 of 4
Gordon Ramsay arrives at Brixton Prison in south London, a category B Victorian jail, packed with drug dealers, burglars, muggers and thieves - some very unsavoury characters. First Gordon needs to pick 12 men for his Bad Boys Brigade business, but none of them can even scramble an egg. After baking some cupcakes with the prisoners, Gordon discovers some of them are handy with icing and glitter.
