Gino will be sharing more of his delicious recipes

A Neapolitan by birth, Gino D’Acampo was inspired to express his natural passion for cooking by his nonno, a respected head chef, and he entered the Luigi de Medici Catering College at the early age of fifteen. He continued to develop his skills through the kitchens of restaurants in Europe - this even included a spell as Head Chef at Sylvester Stallone’s ‘Mambo King’ in Marbella (he was 19) - before coming to England the following year.

Gino is taking a culinary tour of Italy

Gino D'Acampo had already become one of the country’s most popular TV chefs through his many appearances on programmes including Ready, Steady, Cook and Saturday Kitchen when, in 2009, he scored a spectacular success, winning the title King Of The Jungle on ITV's hit series, I'm A Celebrity - Get Me Out Of Here!.

Viewers took him to their hearts, voting him the series winner by a record-breaking margin.

Gino has gone on to make many further guest appearances, becoming a regular on ITV’s award-winning flagship programme, This Morning, and hosting two ITV series, There’s No Taste Like Home and Let’s Do Lunch ... with Gino and Mel; the latter proved so popular that it ran for five series. Alongside this, Gino has found time to keep in touch with his mischievous side by appearing on ITV2’s hit show, Celebrity Juice, everybody’s guilty pleasure.
