Gino D'Acampo Gets His Kit Off In Front Off Gordon Ramsay's Mum
Viewers got more than they bargained for when Gino D'Acampo whipped off his kit in front of Gordon Ramsay's mum:
After losing a bet on tonight's episode of Gordon, Gino and Fred: American Road Trip, the Italian cook and First Dates host Fred Sirieix had to jump into the Gordon's pool at his California home.
The pair went up against the Brit to see who could make the best burger for his mum Helen, with Gino, 43, and Fred, 48, going for a more continental style, while the Kitchen Nightmares presenter went for the traditional American patty.
But it didn't turn out too well for Fred and Gino.
Judging the dishes, Helen said: "I've got to go for yours, Gordon, because I didn't like the soggy bun."
Offended, Fred hit back: "Well, I disagree."
Her son then gave the lads their marching orders, telling them: "You lost, big deal. Get your clothes off and jump in the pool."
But it seemed Helen had her own agenda, admitting: "I always knew I wanted to pick Gordon, because I wanted to see them jump in the water with no clothes on."

Watching on as the pair get into their birthday suits, Gordon, 53, said: "Oh my goodness me, I'm so sorry."
However, Helen definitely wasn't looking away, adding: "I enjoyed it, don't worry about it."
It's been a jam-packed series thus far, with Gordon getting the shock of a lifetime last week when he discovered his daughter Tilly was on a dinner date with his travelling companion Gino's son Luciano.
Tilly, 18, was out for tea with the younger D'Acampo at London restaurant Heddon Street Kitchen, when he decided he'd check in on his dad after he was involved in a nasty buggy accident on the trio's journey through Mexico.
During the video chat, Luciano decided to tease his dad and Ramsay by asking 'do you know who I'm with?' before spinning the camera around to reveal he was sitting alongside Gordon's daughter.
Ramsay sprung into action, asking: "What the hell? Tilly! What are you doing, Matilda?!"
He later added: "You didn't tell me you were going to dinner with Luciano."
His daughter - in a tone that is no doubt familiar to any parent of teenagers - responded: "Oh, sorry. I must have forgot."
Fred, who was seemingly enjoying himself as the only member of the three-strong team not to have a child involved in the situation, then ramped up the awkwardness by saying: "It's OK to kiss on the first date, if you feel the urge, you've got to do it."
Ramsay simply said: "Mamma Mia!"
Despite this initial date, it seems as if the pair remain only friends. At the end of last year, Tilly decided to quash the rumours of a relationship between herself and Luciano by sharing a photograph of her with her actual boyfriend Seth Mack.
