Gordon Ramsay has praised his children for getting through a “tough year” and getting into university.
Twins Jack and Holly, both 18, are going to Exeter and Ravensbourne university, getting ABB and ABC respectively.
“Also well done to all the other students on a very tough year ! Dinner’s on me!”
Mr Ramsay has previously spoken about his tough parenting style, which he thinks instills the value of hard work.
He said of his children: “They don’t sit with us in first class. They haven’t worked anywhere near hard enough to afford that. At that age, at that size, you’re telling me they need to sit in first class? No, they do not. We’re really strict on that.
“I turn left with Tana and they turn right and I say to the chief stewardess, ‘Make sure those little f—— don’t come anywhere near us, I want to sleep on this plane’. I worked my f—— arse off to sit that close to the pilot and you appreciate it more when you’ve grafted for it.”
Students across the country are receiving their results today.
5 A*s – and off to Cambridge
A student who gained a clean sweep of five A* grades in his A-levels is to fulfil a childhood dream of studying at Cambridge University.

The 18-year-old was encouraged by staff at Trinity Academy to apply for Cambridge and attended summer schools there and at Oxford.
He said: “They gave me a taste of the way of life there and the people were really down to earth, which I was surprised by.”
Jack, of Moorends, was particularly taken with Cambridge University for its facilities and the city.
He said: “After the summer school, I decided I really wanted to go there and I’ve been focused on that ever since.
“I’m really looking forward to being around people who have similar interests to me.”

They were the first people he called after discovering he had scored A* in his maths, further maths, and chemistry A Levels.
He said: “When I told them how well I had done they were both in tears. It means so much to them that their son has done well in this country. They are so grateful for everything this country has given us.
“If they had not left Kosovo and been caught up in the fighting, chances they would not have lived long enough to have children, let alone have one going to the best university in the world.”
Grenfell Tower students pick up their results
Students from the school in the shadow of Grenfell Tower have spoken of their joy in bringing hope and happiness back to the community.

Her 18-year-old daughter said: “I’m feeling very happy. I got the results I wanted. The grades don’t mean as much to me as my marks.
“It’s always going to be stressful, I wanted to do well for my parents.
