After wreaking havoc in Ramsay’s Boiling Point, Gordon Ramsay is back...

In this six-part fly-on-the-wall documentary series, we follow Gordon through the most intense year of his life as he copes with his celebrity status and juggles cooking with the ever increasing demands on his time from beyond the kitchen.

The most temperamental chef in London now has it all. He’s got power, machismo, love, celebrity friends, and fame. He’s even become a sex symbol...

He was famous for his notorious temper. He says he's changed... but has he?

Beyond Boiling Point follows Gordon Ramsay through a tempestuous year as he attempts to dominate the London scene, embarks on a rivalry with his one-time pupil Marcus Waring and celebrating the birth of his twins.
