Ramsay and Gallagher outdo Trinny and Susannah in ratings

LONDON - Channel 4's 'Gordon Ramsay's F Word', in which Oasis singer Liam Gallagher helped his wife bake an apple tart, cooked up 3.1m viewers last night to beat ITV1's 'The Great British Body', starring Trinny and Susannah.

The fourth episode of Channel 4's cookery series, which is set to run for 12 episodes, was watched by a 13.9% share of the audience at 9pm-10pm.

Including Channel 4+1 ratings, the show managed 3.4m viewers and a 15.5% share.

The second episode of ITV1's 'The Great British Body' only had 2.7m viewers and a 12.1% share in the same primetime slot, a disappointing performance for the new series, which concludes tonight.

The slot was won by BBC One's 'Traffic Cops', narrated by Jamie Theakston, with 5.5m viewers and a 25% share.

In the same slot, Five's US import 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation' earned 1.8m viewers and an 8.3% share while BBC Two's cookery series 'The Supersizers Go... Victorian', starring Times food critic Giles Coren, brought 1.7m viewers and a 7.5% share.
