You can 86 Kitchen Nightmares. Celebrity chef and reality star Gordon Ramsay announced Monday that he's closing up the restaurant renovation program that helped build his empire.

Ramsay revealed his plan on his website Monday morning, saying, "It's been a blast but it's time to call it a day." Kitchen Nightmares debuted in 2004 in the U.K. and was brought over to the United States in 2007 via Fox. Ramsay says he's filmed 123 episodes of the series.

"I'd like to thank you all for being so supportive," Ramsay said on his website. "I'm glad I've been able to entertain and hopefully help a few people along the way. It's sad to say goodbye to Kitchen Nightmares but I'll be continuing with my other shows. It's been memorable! Thank you for watching."  

Ramsay's decision to make the announcement himself appears to have caught Fox off guard. The network has not commented on the news.
