Taking to the social media platform, the Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares host announced that he was going vegan.

"Hi guys, it's Gordon," the chef said at the beginning of the video. "I've got a confession. After three decades of cooking, hundreds and hundreds of thousands of hours behind the stove I… I'm turning vegan."

The celebrity chef then showed off a delicious recipe for a vegan steak, using an aubergine in place of the actual meat.

However, at the end of the video, it reverses itself back to Gordon's announcement. "I'm turning vegan… for lunch only," he said.

Fans were in disbelief with the video, with many admitting that the Hell's Kitchen presenter had nearly, or completely, fooled them.

The star admitted it was for "lunch only"

In the hilarious video, the teen could be seen squirting her father in the face with water, before cracking an egg on his forehead and then quickly running out of shot.

"Someone did the dishes last night in the Ramsay household…." the chef joked in the video's caption.

Fans applauded the effort from the 19-year-old, as one said: "Tilly got you good!! Cannot believe you fell for that! Cracked me up."

Another added: "The only person that can do this to him," while a third wrote: "Legend says she's still running."
