The foul-mouthed celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay is ending his show “Kitchen Nightmares” after a decade-long run.

“I’ve had a phenomenal 10 years making 123 episodes, 12 seasons, shot across 2 continents, watched by tens of millions of people and sold to over 150 countries,” Ramsay wrote on his website Monday. “It’s been a blast but it’s time to call it a day.”

“Kitchen Nightmares” “really propelled my TV career,” he wrote. “I’m glad I’ve been able to entertain and hopefully help a few people along the way. It’s sad to say goodbye to ‘Kitchen Nightmares’ but I’ll be continuing with my other shows.” Those include “Hell’s Kitchen” and “MasterChef.”

The show has run on both British and American television, where he showed up at struggling restaurants to offer his tough-love advice, often to owners who clearly didn’t want to hear what he had to say. Rare was the show when he didn’t erupt with a barrage of four-letter words.

In his post, he reckoned that the series had “10,197 swear words” and “0.4 gallons of tears.” He also said “the show brought in $37.3 million in ad revenue during the 2012-13 season – more than any other Friday FOX original series that season.”
