UK coffee shop chain Costa Coffee has enlisted a ‘new familiar face’ in the form of a Gordon Ramsay look-alike, to test out its new Vegan Bac’n Bap, which has now landed across Costa Coffee stores nationwide.

Costa said it has almost made ‘Gordon Ramsay’ the face of its new plant-based Naked without the oink bacon-style bap, after social media saw the Hell’s Kitchen chef refute the original breakfast Bacon Bap in a viral TikTok drive-thru roasting, that could have left a bad taste in the coffee shop’s mouth.

Instead of just being painfully offended – as seems to be the trend these days – Costa Coffee opted to capitalise on Ramsay’s tirade by booking The F Word double, look-alike Martin Jordan, who also takes faking-it very seriously, preparing the new Vegan Bac’n Bap at home in an instructional trial.

The result is a brilliant parody created by agency One Green Bean.

Proud to be fake, but tasting ever so real, the soft white bap is accompanied by either rich Heinz tomato ketchup or sweet HP Brown sauce (both of which are also 100% vegan) and can be purchased hot in-store or to be taken away to enjoy at home. 

The all-new Vegan Bac’n Bap is the perfect morning bite to go with that perfectly handcrafted drink of choice – you would be a fool not to try it, said Costa.

Costa Coffee decided to put its delicious new menu addition to the test with the ‘world famous-looking chef’, Mr. Jordan, remarking how delicious the new vegan item was in comparison to its iconic breakfast counterpart.

A Costa Coffee spokesperson said: “Gordon Ramsay might be famous for pulling kitchens apart, but the country’s favourite look-alike definitely knows how to put our Vegan Bac’n Bap together. 

“At Costa Coffee we always look to challenge our alternative food offerings to provide as much choice for our customers as possible, and this breakfast alternative is very proud to be fake.

Ramsay look-alike, Jordan, added: “My impersonation skills and experience were put to the test filming the trial of the Vegan Bac’n Bap, along with a rare chance to film as myself in my day job, which brought a fun element to the whole project! 

“We’ll see whether Gordon agrees, as I’m no expert, but it tasted b****y good!”

Costa Coffee’s new Vegan Bac’n Bap is now available in its stores.
