Ramsey tells of brother's addiction

TV chef Gordon Ramsay has spoken of the heartache his brother's heroin addiction has caused his family.

Ramsay, 48, said that despite the ongoing efforts to help offered by himself and his mother Helen, his brother Ronnie does not seem to be able to break free of his addition.

Ramsay told the Sunday People: "They have got to hit rock bottom before they want to get out of that scenario so I think it is more painful from the outside for mum."

An Indonesian court has sentenced Ronnie to 10 months in jail for heroin possession.

The Hell's Kitchen star added: "Yeah he is my brother and there is 15 months between us but our lives have gone left and right. There is not a day when I don't think about him."
