Gino D'Acampo surprises yet another unsuspecting victim with his Kitchen Kidnap. This week the lucky target is Keiran Blaszczyk, a college teacher from Southfields, who has been nominated by his mum Terrie. Terrie says the whole family are in desperate need of Gino's help because although Keiran loves cooking he uses way too much spice in his food!
