There's been a lot written recently about Cliff Richard's wine - not the perpetual whining about how copyright law means he only gets half a century of earnings from each ten minutes he spends in a studio, but the fermented grape stuff.

Trouble is, in a blind tasting for Channel 4's The F Word, it was described in less than glowing terms.

By Cliff himself. Gordon Ramsay explains. And swears:

“Cliff had been boasting that he has a vineyard but I realised he knows fuck-all about wine.

“He said he wasn’t keen on this £40 bottle . . . and then he said the second glass of wine was rough.

“So I said, ‘Cliff, that was your fucking wine — fuck off’. He couldn’t even recognise his own fucking wine.

“I must be the only person in the world to have ever sworn at Sir Cliff Richard."

Clearly, Gordon has never been in a room where someone has put on a recent Cliff record.
