In his first public appearance since the allegations began, Gordon Ramsay laughed off rumors of his long time affair with associate Sarah Symonds.

One scathing accusation:
Irvine’s bio on his own Web page lists a B.S. degree in food and nutrition from the University of Leeds.
True?
“That was a program set up through the Royal Navy,” Irvine said. Then he paused. “We don’t call it a bachelor’s of science.”
