Gino D'Acampo has quit one of his most popular shows, after what he branded as 'stressful' arguments over contracts.

The Italian chef has been one of ITV's biggest stars for years now. He became a beloved regular on This Morning, entertaining the masses with his hilarious cooking segments.

The success of his appearances on This Morning helped launched him as an individual TV personality, landing him his own travel and cookery series, as well as the Family Fortunes hosting gig.

Since 2018, himself Gordon Ramsay and Fred Sirieix (the beloved maître d' in First Dates) have become a notorious trio with a popular travel show Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip.

However, in news that is sure to upset fans, Gino has revealed he won't be continuing with the show, claiming that he was faced with an 'impossible situation.'

He revealed the news in a candid Instagram video, which he captioned with the lyrics from My Way by Frank Sinatra: 'And now the end is here and so I face that final curtain'

Gino told his followers: “Last week I decided not to film any more Gordon, Gino and Fred Road trips. The reason is very simple – nothing to do with Gordon or Fred, the friendship is very strong.'

He went into detail about how the scheduling conflicts would stress him out, especially when it came to clashing with his family time.

He wanted to make it clear it had nothing to do with the two lads - if anything he had to quit the show so their friendship would remain in tact!

They've already already filmed the last series so we still have that to look forward to! What's next for the Gino though we'll just have to keep our eyes peeled.
