ITV announces Next Level Chef with Gordon Ramsay
ITV orders a UK version of Next Level Chef with Gordon Ramsay, to air in 2023.

ITV has ordered a UK version of Gordon Ramsay's competitive cookery series Next Level Chef.

The show - first broadcast on FOX in the US earlier this year - sees 12 contestants cook in one of three kitchen spaces in a huge, three-storey set measuring 50ft high.

The higher the level, the more facilities will be on offer to the cooks, with the basement level offering just basic equipment and the top level featuring state-of-the-art devices.

Ramsay will serve as one of three judges on the show, while the winner will receive a £100,000 cash prize and a year's mentoring from all three of the top chef judges.

"Next Level Chef is off the chart Next Level everything!" said Ramsay. "A culinary competition that is epic on every level. From the size of the enormous structure to every challenge, every moment of jeopardy is huge.

"I want to see our chefs, social media stars, home cooks whatever their level, whatever their experience, show me what they can do.

"Whether they're at the top cooking in the dream kitchen with every gadget and the finest ingredients or in the middle kitchen, good equipment, good ingredients but nothing fancy or, and this is where it gets really interesting, down in the basement kitchen. Super basic, minimal ingredients and left-over scraps then show me what you're really made of!

"Talent and tenacity will absolutely shine through, and someone will walk away with an equally Next Level prize, I can't wait to get started!"

Filming of the eight-part series will take place in October for broadcast on ITV and ITVX in 2023.
