Guy Ritchie has unveiled his £50,000 luxury BBQ on the first day of the Chelsea Flower Show today.
The director, 53, designed the outdoor grill to entertain celebrity guests all year round at his Ashcombe House estate, near Salisbury, Wiltshire, that he bought with ex-wife Madonna.
He was joined by his ex-model wife Jacqui Ainsley as he launched the fire-table, which featured in his 2019 action-comedy The Gentlemen, Royal Horticultural Society’s first ever autumn show.
The BBQ-obsessive, who previously admitted to having over 30 different grills, has said the Wildtable is a ‘brand new way to cook, gather and eat’.
In the film, which stars Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant’s sleazy journalist Fletcher said: ‘So that heats up your knees and cooks at the same time.
‘Ha, you [have] got to show me how to get one of them.’
Guy and wife Jacqui often host outdoor meals using the grill on the 1,100-acre estate for friends including the Beckhams.
The film-maker, who also directed Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, previously admitted to an obsession with barbecues, owning more than 30.
Ritchie said: ‘There’s just something about them. I’m a caveman in many ways.’
His firm, The Cashmere Caveman Co, Wild Kitchens, called the Wildtable a ‘brand new way to cook, gather and eat’.
Charcoal or wood is burned under a glass lid in the centre of the table with smoke drawn away by a flue.
Prices range from £2,500 for a four-seater to £50,000 for a 12-seater in a kitchen with retractable dining tent.
He previously told The Times: ‘Well, we have a company called the Cashmere Cavemen Company.
‘I have a lot of time for cavemen. I like primitive man.
‘But I like the life of a primitive man in a romantic sense: you want to ‘cashmere’ it.
‘You want all the benefits of a very simple, primal natural life, with all the benefits of evolution and technology that we have managed to refine over the past few hundreds or thousand years, so you can have the best version of a natural life.’
