British chef Gordon Ramsay can continue swearing on Australian TV - after the government rejected calls for a ban on certain profanities.
Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares prompted outrage earlier this year (08), when one episode featured the volatile chef using a four-letter expletive more than 80 times in 40 minutes.
The Catholic church spearheaded a campaign to have the show scrapped or shown at a later time.
But a Senate inquiry into the bad language used by Ramsay has rejected calls for a ban.
The committee said they would not recommend broadcast restrictions on Ramsay's choice of swear words because there was insufficient community support for a ban.
