Ayrshire restaurant staff do a double take as ‘Gordon Ramsay’ shows up on site
When it comes to food critics, no one is more feared in the game than Gordon Ramsay.
So the staff at an Ayrshire restaurant were forgiven for doing a double take when a master impersonator showed up on their site.
TikTok star Scheiffer Bates is renowned for his hilarious impressions of Ramsay online.
And his routine is so good that the TV chef has been known to reach out and engage with his alter ego.
Now Bates, who has more than 435,000 followers on social media, has been recruited by Buzzworks bosses as part of a new ad campaign.

He showed up this week at ‘The Vine’ in Prestwick to sample some of the fayre in true Ramsay style.
And the hilarious video has already been a huge hit with customers online.
It’s all part of a move by Buzzworks to try and help with recruiting on their sites by using TikTok stars like Bates appearing on their sites.
Buzzworks Head of Marketing Martin McCabe said: “Customers and brands have quickly embraced TikTok, but Buzzworks will be the first to use it as a recruitment tool in the UK hospitality industry.”
