Good Housekeeping readers have voted Gordon Ramsay the UK's Most Intimidating Celebrity Dinner Guest. But they don't fear a tirade of abuse from the foul-mouthed Scot. Cookery editor Emma Marsden says they are simply concerned about Ramsay's "exacting standards".

And they clearly think the TV chef is much more demanding than The Queen. While half those polled plumped for Ramsay as the personality they'd least like to cook for, HRH, in at second, got just 12% of the vote.
