London, Dec 1 : Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay has branded 'serial mistress' Sarah Symonds "a slapper" after she exposed her alleged relationship with him.
When Ramsay, 42, heard the claims that Symonds made, the chef scornfully told the audience at a cooking demonstration in Birmingham that it was not true.
"Come on, if I was really going to cheat it wouldn't be with a complete slapper," the Mirror quoted him as saying.
Symonds, 38, had given vivid details of the affair that she claims went on for seven years and she even cheekily insisted that the affair might have saved his marriage.
"My relationship with Gordon is probably the reason their 12-year marriage has lasted this long. A mistress keeps a marriage going," she said.
"His wife might be able to forgive him a one-off but I am far from a one-off," she added.
The self-made "professional mistress" even insisted that since Ramsay was not happy with his marriage to Tana, she became his mistress and soul mate during an affair that took place in London and Los Angeles.
Symonds claims that the two had first slept together at her London flat December 2001.
