In a brand new competition series for BBC One, Gordon Ramsay will be on the hunt  for country’s most exciting and innovative new food and drink entrepreneurs.
 

The eight part series is called Gordon Ramsay’s Future Food Stars. 

Ramsay said: “The future of our food industry has never been more exciting. I can’t wait to search across the country unearthing some of Britain’s most entrepreneurial talent. I’ve spent the last 21 years at Restaurant Gordon Ramsay nurturing, supporting and mentoring some of Great Britain’s greatest chefs and that’s truly why I think investing in the next generation of talented individuals is so important!” 

In an era of subscription boxes, food apps, and high-tech delivery services, Britain is in the middle of a food revolution.  Ramsay is prepared to put his money where his mouth is by backing the winner with an investment to take their idea to the next level.

BBC Moves Jobs Outside London

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


BBC director general Tony Hall has outlined a plan that will see at least two thirds of the corporation's staff based outside London by 2027.
 

Lord Hall said a new tech hub will be opened in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, while 150 jobs will be moved to Bristol. 

Salford will be "the heart" of BBC Sounds and will be home to more digital posts and "much more journalism". 

He said creating more jobs away from the capital would help to "promote inclusion" and "diversity of thinking". 

Just over half of the BBC's 19,000-strong workforce is currently based outside London. That figure was around a third a decade ago. 

"Our centres have become magnets for ideas and talent, new jobs and investment," Lord Hall told BBC staff today. 

"That's really good news. But I know we can go further. We can do so much more for this country - and we're going to - starting this year."

Strictly Come Dancing champion Oti Mabuse will travel back to her home country of South Africa to film a one-off BBC special.

Titled Oti’s South African Odyssey, the Strictly star will be hoping to show viewers “her South Africa”, a country “she feels is often misunderstood and she will show us a land of beauty, diversity, and hope”.

The 29-year-old said of the BBC One programme: “To be asked by the BBC to do my very own documentary about something that is so close to my heart is an absolute privilege and I am deeply humbled.

“I can’t wait to show the viewers where I grew up and take them on the journey that got me to where I am today. I truly hope they love South Africa like I do.”

According to the BBC, she will travel across the country, including a journey to Mabopane where she grew up, situated near the outskirts of the country’s administrative capital, Pretoria.

Mabuse was crowned the winner of the 2019 series of Strictly alongside her partner, soap star Kelvin Fletcher, having joined the series in 2015.

She has also previously partnered boxer Anthony Ogogo, Hollyoaks star Danny Mac and Paralympian Jonnie Peacock.

Last year her sister, Motsi, joined Strictly as a judge, replacing ballerina Dame Darcey Bussell on the panel.

Oti has also been seen on BBC One’s The Greatest Dancer as a dance captain, winning the first series of the show last year with her act, teenage contemporary dancer Ellie Fergusson.

According to the BBC, her journey back to South Africa comes eight years after she left her home country to venture overseas.

She has competed in the German version of Strictly Come Dancing and was named South African Latin American champion eight times.
