Gordon Ramsay has earned himself a new legion of fans after sharing a throwback photo from when he was a teenager. The celebrity chef posted the photo on Instagram in honour of the social media site's online Graduation 2020 celebrations – and many of his followers commented on how attractive he looked.

"#classof2020 I think I won 'Most Likely to Find the Lamb Sauce'… guess that wasn't true," Gordon captioned the photo, which showed him clutching an engraved trophy while wearing a grey T-shirt with contrasting blue sleeves, and sporting a floppy haircut that earned him comparisons to Justin Bieber.
