There was uproar across Scotland last night as chef Gordon Ramsay mispronounced the name of an Angus town.
During the episode of Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip, which aired last night, the three chefs visit a number of key culinary locations across Scotland – starting in Brechin.
Or as Ramsay pronounced it – Breckin…
Fans of the show were quick to point out the mistake.

However, his pronunciation had some people doubting themselves.
Anyone watching #GordonGinoAndFred is Ramsay saying Brechin wrong? Or have I been saying it wrong my whole life? ?

Good news though – it appears the chef’s mum has been on the phone to correct him.
