Gino D’Acampo, 46, shocked fans this week as he announced he made the hard decision to quit the popular ITV show, Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip. This comes as the TV chef spoke previously to Express.co.uk about the struggles of “living on top” of each other while filming the series, as well as discussing their partying antics off-camera.
Since 2018, Gino, Gordon Ramsay and Fred Sirieux have embarked on a hilarious journey around the world exploring local culture and cuisine.
ITV viewers have followed the trio to places such as Italy, France, Greece and America.
Express.co.uk spoke to Gino prior to the news of his departure from the show about his relationship with his co-stars.
The TV chef shared what it was like “living on top” of each other, and joked most of what goes on would “not be allowed to be shown on television”.

He revealed: “Look, we live on top of each other, we sleep and live in the caravan all the time.
“So you can imagine three men, what’s going on in that place? Most of the time, it cannot be shown on television because of nudity, language and God knows what else we get up to.
“So as I said you only see 50 percent of the show, the other 50 are for us for the three of us to know and for you to never find out!”
Express.co.uk can confirm the trio have filmed a series in Spain that has not yet been shown on ITV.
This comes as Gino made sure to clarify in his departure message that he was not leaving because of his relationship with Fred and Gordon.
In a short video message on Instagram, Gino explained he was telling his fans directly as he didn’t want the real reason to be misconstrued in any way.
He said: “Last week, I decided not to film any more Gordon, Gino and Fred Road trips.
“The reason is simple, I mean nothing to do with Gordon or Fred, the friendship is very strong, we have known each other for many years.
“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.”
He continued: “Also because contracts start to become very complicated then it becomes very stressful.
“I personally value the friendship with Gordon and Fred so much that I would rather the friendship than arguments with the contract.”
He also made sure to clarify that he intends to remain friends with the pair and then ended the message by saying all good things must come to an end.
Speaking of the new series, Gino told Express.co.uk back in January: “We filmed in Spain, we filmed two episodes in Spain and we got back three days ago. It was fantastic!
“I can’t tell you a lot otherwise I will get in trouble. But, I can tell you that we’re in Spain and it was fun! It was a lot of fun.”
Gino made the decision over a year ago to cut back on certain areas of his eccentric foodie lifestyle as he approaches 50.
Although Gino has opted for a healthier way of living, he made clear that he still eats what he wants in moderation.
He said: “The most important thing is I still eat the things I want to eat in moderation. What helped me a lot is having a better breakfast in the morning.
“You know talking about breakfast, one of the things that I’ve been doing now for over a year is to have my Berocca Immuno every day with it.
