London, Nov 23 : British TV chef Gordon Ramsay has been exposed as a love rat after he was caught cheating behind his wife Tana's back with Jeffrey Archer's ex, according to reports.
Ramsay, 42, who had portrayed himself as a family man, had begun his affair with blonde Sarah Symonds, 38, seven years ago, and he was spotted meeting her for sex at a London hotel next to his popular restaurant, Maze, three days ago, the sources revealed.
The chef, who became a multi-millionaire promoting "Brand Ramsay", had always shown himself to be a loving husband and father of four, and had even made claims during the time he was sleeping with Symonds that Tana, 33, is "the only woman who can turn him on". In 2006, Ramsay was voted Celebrity Father Of The Year and in 2007 the Ramsays were named Celebrity Family Of The Year.
His latest rendezvous with Symonds came to light on November 20, when he was seen at the Marriott Hotel off London's Grosvenor Square where she checked into the 390 pounds-a-night Room 106 on the first floor after buying some legal drugs for him.
"Sarah said Gordon had specifically asked her to go to Soho and get him some poppers for their romp. He likes the buzz," News of the World quoted a source, as saying.
Ramsay and Symonds stayed in the room for just over an hour and a quarter before he left at 9.30pm, retracing his steps to Maze.
In June, Ramsay had told another newspaper that he was happy with his wife.
"Tana and I have a great marriage even though we spend very little time together. The time we have together is quality rather than quantity," he had stated.
