Adam Hutcheson, 46, from Sevenoaks, was charged under Operation Tuleta with conspiring to cause a computer to access programs and data without authority

Celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay’s Kent-based brother-in-law has admitted computer hacking.

Adam Hutcheson, 46, from Sevenoaks, was charged under Operation Tuleta with conspiring to cause a computer to access programs and data without authority.

His father Chris Hutcheson, 68, and siblings Orlanda Butland, 45, and Chris Hutcheson Jnr, 37, also faced the same charge.

They appeared at the Old Bailey before Judge Gerald Gordon and spoke to confirm their identities.

The defendants pleaded guilty apart from Ms Butland, who denied the charge.

The prosecution accepted the pleas and offered no evidence in relation to Ms Butland.

Hutcheson Snr is the father of Ramsay’s wife, Tana.

The charges relate to an alleged plot to hack of the computer system at Gordon Ramsay Holdings Ltd between October 23 2010 and March 31 2011.

All the defendants were on bail.

The judge agreed to the preparation of pre-sentence reports and said all sentencing options were open.

He adjourned sentencing to June 2.
