Britain’s favourite Italian chef was initially asked to appear on Good Food Live to demonstrate his particular expertise and skill in using olive oil, Gino quickly went on to become one of the country’s most popular TV chefs through his many appearances on cookery programmes - including Ready, Steady, Cook and Saturday Kitchen. 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. He 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. Capturing the flavours of his homeland, Gino’s Italian Escape was first produced by ITV in 2013, returning in 2014, 2015 and 2016 for hugely successful runs, each accompanied by a best-selling book. 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.
Gino is also the author of several highly popular cookbooks, including Fantastico!, Gino’s Pasta and Italian Home Baking. Gino’s Italian Escape, published in 2013 to accompany the TV series, was a major success and April 2015 saw the release of Veg Italia!. His latest book, Gino’s Hidden Italy, was published in autumn 2016 and will soon be followed by Gino’s Healthy Italian For Less, published in May 2017 and bringing a calorie-conscious and nutritionally-balanced take on both Italian classics and some great new recipes.
