Fred Sirieix rules out Gino D'Acampo being replaced for Gordon, Gino and Fred
| Last updated
It’s the end of the road for Gino D'Acampo on Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip.
Fans will undoubtedly be cheesed off, having watched the foodies get into all kinds of hijinks over four seasons.
If you’ve not watched Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip, we highly recommend grabbing a slice of the series.
Whilst you’d think it would be a rather chilled affair, the trio of TV personalities and real-life friends often get into all kinds of scraps, such as getting high off THC-infused foods in San Francisco.
Back at home, the series has been a huge hit with audiences - who’ve been getting their teeth into the ITV series since 2018.
After D'Acampo announced that he would be departing the much-loved show earlier this year, fans began to speculate about whether he would be replaced on the show.
Speaking about his castmate's exit from the series, Fred Sirieix exclusively told LADbible that they would not be replacing the TV chef.
“No, no…nobody is getting replaced by anyone,” explained the maitre d', while appearing on the red carpet at the National Television Awards.
Earlier this year, the TV chef announced that he would be leaving the hit series, telling his 1.7 million Instagram followers that he was departing due to scheduling conflicts.
During the short clip, he also insisted that his long-running friendship with Ramsey and Sirieix was ‘very strong’.
The 46-year-old said: “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.
"It’s just because we can’t get the dates together and sometimes when we do get the dates together sometimes they get changed and it causes a lot of problems for me because I have other stuff that I have to do.
“Personal problems as well because when I have to change things with my family it is very complicated and also because contracts."
Eager to not let this sour their friendship, D’Acampo chose to exit the hit travel show instead.
Continuing, he added: "Because contracts start to become very complicated and very stressful, I personally value the friendship with Gordon and Fred so much that I would rather the friendship than arguments with the contract.
"So I have decided not to do it anymore because I want to be friends with the boys for many, many years ahead."
Whilst it’s a pretty heartwarming reason for leaving, the chef’s departure will still be bittersweet for fans.
If you still want one for the road, you can catch what might be the last episode of Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip on ITV X.
