He may be no stranger to controversy in his professional life, but it seems Scottish chef, Gordon Ramsey, has been forced to endure criticism regarding his personal life in recent days - something which understandably hasn't sat well with the famous father-of-four.

Upon uploading a family shot to his social media channels last weekend, the 49-year-old proud dad and his family were subject to considerable scrutiny as members of the public questioned his daughters' choice of party wear.

The image, which featured Gordon's 17-year-old daughter Megan, 16-year-old son Jack, 16-year-old daughter Holly and 14-year-old daughter Matilda, didn't exactly garner the expected response when Gordon chose to share an insight into his family's private life.

Paying tribute to twins, Holly and Jack, who were celebrating their birthday, Gordon wrote: "Very cool 16th birthday party @heddonstkitchen last night. Congratulations Jack & Holly  #prouddad."

However, it looks like the star's followers were less interested in his childrens' birthday celebrations and more concerned about his daughters' modesty, with many social media users commenting on the length of the skirts worn by the girls in the photo..

"Those are some short skirts," wrote one follower of the celebrity chef while another used Twitter to write: "How do they possibly let them dress this way? The black and white outfit is fine borderline but the others.....I'm thinking 17 to 20 year old boys will be thinking they are easy pickings."

Stunned by the backlash the family shot received, Gordon questioned the public's thought process and responded with a tweet, writing: "Sick minded people Claire, my job is to teach my son how to respect girls."

Can you understand Gordon's upset?
