A third series of ITV hit show Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip is on the way - as the trio prepare to start filming on their biggest adventure yet.
Fred Sirieix told LADbible filming was initially supposed to begin at the end of August - but had been delayed by the coronavirus outbreak. They've got a new travel plan though - which will see the three friends hit the road for over a month next year.
"Yes, it's happening. We've put the route and the travel plan together, we're going to go next year," he said. "I can't wait to get started.
"I can't say where, but we've got the destination. We're putting the trip together no and it's looking pretty good, I have to say."
Fred also said he'd missed Gordon and Gino during lockdown - despite the fact they can all wind each other up.
"We're missing each other like crazy," he said. "I think about them all the time. We have a group chat, so I just put a message in there the other day to tell them I missed them and couldn't wait to see them. Gordon replied that he missed us more, with four kisses. Then Gino replied saying we should go for a drink, with five kisses
"That tells you exactly how they are when we're away. They're just so competitive. Gordon is like this big alpha male lion, who is fast, fast, fast. And Gino is more laid back, takes his time. But Gordon is so competitive that he just works Gino up to the point of doing things that he wouldn't normally do.
"We were in the US (for series two) for a month, and it was the greatest thing I've ever done in my life. But we'll be away for a bit longer this time.
Fred also re-lived some of his favourite moments from their travels so far - including one that had Chef Ramsay quivering in fear.
"I loved being in the watering hole in Texas. I had such a feeling of elation and joy. The goat yoga was pretty surreal. Wrestling in Mexico. In the changing room, Gordon was shitting himself. I had to give him a hug to get him to come out. We felt like gladiators coming out of the Coliseum."
But Fred said making the show is one of his favourite things to do, and not like work at all.
"Do you know what. I love them," he said. "I actually love them. And I think of them often. I've opened a new restaurant in London and I often ask myself what they would do, or take inspiration from them.
"Sometimes they get on my nerves. You just can't argue with Gordon because even when you're right, you're wrong.
"But I couldn't spend that much time with them if I didn't love them. It wouldn't work."
Meanwhile, Fred has been working with Sky Mobile on Text-to-Ditch, a new kind break-up service to help post-lockdown lovers handle those tricky break-up conversations over text.
To use the 'Text-to-Ditch' service and get a witty, poignant and carefully crafted break-up text written especially for you by Fred all you need to do is send Sky Mobile a WhatsApp/Text to 0736 898 2113 with your name, the first name of the person you're breaking up with, something nice about them, the brief reason the relationship is ending, and why you chose to use 'Text-to-Ditch'.
Who said romance was dead eh?
