Gary Rhodes' final footage shows chef watching sunset just hours before he died

Final footage of Gary Rhodes shows the celebrity chef watching the sunset just hours before he died.

The father-of-two passed away in November last year after suddenly collapsing during a trip to Dubai, where he was filming his new TV show.

And now scenes that were recorded during his final hours will be used in an upcoming documentary on his life, Gary Rhodes: The First Rock Star Chef.

Pictures have been released seeing the late star sat on sand dunes as the sun went down behind him.

According to the Mirror, Ainsley Harriott who is presenting the show, says in a voice-over: ‘As the sun set on what would have been his final day of filming, Gary felt on top of the world.

‘Later that evening at home with [wife] Jennie, Gary collapsed and was rushed to hospital suffering from a subdural haematoma.

‘Two days later, and with his family at his bedside, he died.’

When filming had wrapped for the day, Gary headed back to the luxury Grosvenor House hotel, where his restaurant is situated.

Here he had dinner with his wife Jennie before he was taken ill and rushed to hospital after suddenly collapsing.


At the time, his family confirmed: ‘In order to end painful speculation surrounding the sudden passing of our beloved Gary Rhodes OBE, the Rhodes family can confirm that after a successful day shooting with Rock Oyster Media for ITV here in Dubai, Gary returned home in a very happy mood for a peaceful evening with his wife Jennie.

‘After dinner, Gary unfortunately collapsed in their residence and was rushed to hospital but unfortunately passed away due to subdural hematoma.

‘At this time, there are no other details and the family would again request privacy around this very tragic loss and again, thank friends and family for their ongoing support at this time.’

A subdural hematoma is usually caused by a head injury, and causes blood to collect between the skull and the surface of the brain.

The condition can develop soon after a severe injury or sometimes days or weeks after a minor head injury.

Gary Rhodes: The First Rock Star Chef airs tomorrow at 11.40am on ITV.
