Fred Siriex: Gino's going to cook at my wedding!

Get ready for banter, bad behaviour and bromance, because the three amigos are back! This time, Gordon Ramsey, Gino D’ Acampo and Fred Siriex are embarking on an American Road Trip together.

Fred joins us to share the trio's experiences of goat yoga, marijuana, and what happened when the cameras stopped rolling - and reveal why Gino has agreed to cook at his wedding!

After watching a clip of Gino and Gordon competitively eating chillies, Holly commented that the pair are a recipe for disaster together - and Fred agreed, "They are very competitive and they are both so different, because Gordon goes at 100 miles an hour, he always wants to win, he's always right, you cannot argue with Gordon!

"Whereas Gino doesn't care, he's very little, but he still wants to compete with Gordon, and they go head-to-head in a clash, and I'm just stuck in the middle. It's crazy!"

And is it true Fred said he could "die happy", after the road trip finished?

"Yes, it's true. We'd finished a shoot, we were in Texas, I was crying in the RV, Gino put his arm around me. I told them, "It was so good, I could die now". It was the trip of a lifetime. It's one of the best moments in my life. It's not a show for us, it's our life."

So will Gino or Gordon be Fred's best man at his upcoming wedding? Fred revealed he has other plans for his friends, "Gino has said to me that he wanted to organise my stag do - and I said okay, on one condition, if you cook at my wedding in Jamaica. We're going to do a Jamaican, French and Italian feast. We're going to have the party of a lifetime!"

Keeping Britain's care homes safe

With staff warning they are at breaking point, and the country’s biggest charitable care provider revealing confirmed or suspected cases in more than half of its facilities, MP Peter Kyle is leading the charge to protect our loved ones.

He's calling for all caregivers - and all staff who step foot in a care home - to be tested for Covid-19.

We talk to Peter about what can be done to save lives, and we're also joined by broadcaster Shelagh Fogarty, who decided to move back in with her mum to stop a carer unintentionally bringing the virus into the family home.

Coronavirus: PM says testing will 'unlock puzzle'

Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19, said testing was "how we would unlock the coronavirus puzzle" and "defeat it in the end".

In a video message on Twitter on Wednesday night, he said: "What we need to do is massively ramp up not just tests, so you can know whether you've had the disease in the past - the so-called antibody test - because that will enable you to go to work in the confidence you cannot be infected or infectious.

"Second, people need to know they haven't got it rather than isolating themselves at home for no reason - that's very very important above all for our NHS staff.

"It's crucial people who do have the disease are able to be tested positive and to take the necessary steps to isolate at home in the way that I am doing and many many others are doing."

He added: "I just want to reassure that although I am sequestered here in No.10 Downing Street I am, thanks to the miracles of modern technology able to be in constant touch with my officials and everybody in various departments across the whole of Whitehall."


Asked about testing on Thursday's Good Morning Britain, Professor Paul Cosford, emeritus medical director of PHE, said testing is "critically important" but that social distancing is too.

"Social distancing is absolutely the way that we will reduce the spread of this infection and ultimately will get on top of it."

He said social distancing measures will need to stay in place until spread of the disease becomes "minimal".

Prof Cosford admitted testing numbers in England appear low but insisted they will "increase rapidly".

"I know 2,000 doesn't sound a lot compared with the many hundreds of thousands of NHS staff that we've got but that is now ramping up quickly."

Asked why the process is taking so long, he said: "This is an incredibly complex operation to put in place in a very short period of time."

He added that there is "24/7 work" going on to overcome "a whole range of issues" when it comes to ensuring testing is rolled out properly.
