The purchase comes after news broke that Gordon had secured a new show with the BBC, titled Future Food Stars.
Involving 12 entrepreneurs hoping to receive a life-changing restaurant investment, reports revealed the show will follow a similar format to The Apprentice.
A nod to Gordon’s potty mouth, the show’s acronym FFS is a play on words after the star’s iconic series The F Word which helped his rise to fame.
A TV source revealed at the time that filming was supposed to get underway in 2020, but was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic and rescheduled for this summer instead.
