Gordon Ramsay, 54, said his daughter Holly, 21, had a “very difficult time” after she was sexually assaulted at the age of 18.

In a new interview with his wife Tana, 47, the celebrity chef spoke about how his daughter was able to process the traumatic experience and how, as a father, he came to understand what she had gone through.

Holly first discussed her ordeal last month and shared that the assaults took place when she began studying fashion design at London’s Ravensbourne University.

And now, dad Gordon has spoken out on the tough time as he praised Holly for being so strong.

Speaking to the Mail, Gordon said: “Holly has had a very difficult time. Now she is in an amazing position, and she has dealt with those issues.”

He said he was thankful for the pandemic because it gave the family chance to spend quality time together and they were able to understand what Holly had gone through.

Gordon added that Holly is “absolutely fine now” but says there was “a healing process”.

Last month, Holly discussed being assaulted on her mental-health podcast, 21 & Over.

She told listeners: “By the second half of the first year I was being affected by my PTSD and I had no idea that this was happening.

“I was going out a lot, missing class because I had been out. I wasn’t enjoying myself at all. I was struggling a lot.”

She says the struggle was so intense that a year later she was admitted to the Nightingale Hospital, a private mental health facility in Marylebone.

It was there she was diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety and depression.

On her podcast, Holly said her family had been “amazing” and her struggle has brought her “closer to them in many ways”.

She added that she has therapy up to three times a week and hopes that by speaking out she can help break down the stigma surrounding mental health.
