Gino D'Acampo won't change his ways despite the risk of being cancelled from TV

Gino D'Acampo won't change his ways despite the risk of being cancelled from TV

The Italian chef simply says he'll leave if it's 'his time to go'

TV chef Gino D’Acampo is always doing the rounds on social media for his cheeky one-liners and meme-worthy moments.

And he doesn’t have any plans of changing his ways - even if there’s a risk of him getting cancelled.

D’Acampo regularly makes appearance on ITV’s This Morning to cook up a storm.

Obviously, we can never forget his ‘If my grandmother had wheels she would have been a bike’ quip. That happened all the way back in 2010 by the way, sorry to make you feel old.

Often providing the hosts with awkward moments, the chef reckons its his Italian Stallionness that’s saving him from being cancelled.

Gino D'Acampo is often making cheeky comments on TV.

The 47-year-old told the Daily Star: “We’re living in an era now where you have to be really careful with what you say, but I can’t do that.

“I’ve been doing television for nearly 25 years, and I’ve always done it my way, where whatever I think is what I say.”

Since his rise to fame as one of This Morning’s regular chefs, the Italian has had a string of cookery programmes, appeared on panel shows, won I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and presented Family Fortunes.

D’Acampo added: “I’m always respectful to everyone, so whatever I’ve got to say, maybe I say it in a non-political way, but everyone knows I mean well - I don’t mean it with maliciousness.

“I think I also get away with it because of my accent! I’m going to carry on the way I have been for the last 24 years and if the time comes when it’s my time to go, then it’s my time to go.”

D’Acampo’s Italian lingo slip-ups have often been the reason behind his viral TV moments such as saying ‘up the muff’ live on This Morning.

Among his other TV work, the star was a part of the series Gordon, Gino & Fred: Road Trip with mates Gordon Ramsay and Fred Sirieix.

The trio provide a lot of humour with their show as they bicker and travel and eat. But earlier this year D’Acampo confirmed he would be leaving the show due to scheduling conflicts and issues with his contract.

He stressed that he is still pals with his co-stars, but said he felt he had no option but to quit.

In an announcement on Instagram, D’Acampo said: “Last week I decided not to film any more Gordon, Gino and Fred Road Trips. The reason is very simple - nothing to do with Gordon or Fred, the friendship is very strong.”
