Let's Do Lunch... with Gino and Mel mixes great food and celebrity chat each weekday at 12.30pm.
Chef Gino D'Acampo will cook three delicious dishes and welcome a celebrity guest every weekday throughout the summer, with co-presenter Melanie Sykes at hand.
Cook along with Gino as be prepares an easy-to-follow store cupboard recipe - and while Mel finds out more about the guest he will cook them a special dish.
Then YOU get to decide what Gino rustles up – by voting for the dish you would most like to see him make in our poll.
Gino will also have to face a series of tough food challenges throughout the series – some of which may even get him in to the Guinness Book of World Records! The best part is poor Gino has absolutely no idea what any of the challenges are before he attempts them. Meanwhile Mel will be doing show and tells with some of the the most interesting and outrageous foodies out there.
Most importantly, the show is about you and what you want – so make sure you use our facebook and twitter - using #itvlunch - to ask our presenters and guests questions, request cooking tips and of course, suggest more ideas for Gino's challenges.
