He shows off his creativity behind the camera – but it seems his talents extend to the culinary world too.

Guy Ritchie designed a luxury outdoor grill to entertain celebrity guests all year round at his Ashcombe House estate, near Salisbury, Wiltshire, that he bought with ex-wife Madonna.

Now the director’s fire-table, which featured in his 2019 action-comedy The Gentlemen, will launch at the Chelsea Flower Show next week.

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.’

Ritchie, 53, and ex-model wife Jacqui Ainsley often host outdoor meals using the grill on the 1,100-acre estate for friends including the Beckhams.

The ‘Wildtable’, which costs up to £50,000, will feature on the Main Avenue at the Royal Horticultural Society’s first ever autumn show from Monday.

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.
