Gino D’Acampo ‘blindsided’ Fred Sirieix and Gordon Ramsay as...
Gino D’Acampo is said to have ‘blindsided’ co-stars Gordon Ramsay and Fred Sirieix as well as ITV over his decision to quit Gordon, Gino and Fred’s Road Trip.
His co-stars are also said to be ‘frustrated’ over the ‘real reason’ he left, and it’s not to do with pay, but actually because he ‘wanted a lie in’.
The TV chef announced just days ago that he wouldn’t be returning to the ITV series, which has seen the trio keep viewers entertained across three seasons, having travelled to Morocco, America and Greece, due to scheduling conflicts.
He said at the time: ‘I’ve got a bit of news for you, and the reason I want to tell you is because I don’t want you to read any crap or any wrong information.
‘Last week I decided not to film any more Gordon, Gino and Fred Road Trip, the reason is simple, nothing to do with Gordon and Fred – the friendship is very strong.
‘It’s just because we can’t get the dates together.’
He continued: ‘And when we do get the dates together sometimes they get changed and it causes a lot of problems for me.’
The Italian chef admitted that contracts got ‘very complicated’ and he values his friendship with his co-stars more.Gino announced on Monday he was quitting the show (Picture: ITV)
‘I rather the friendship than get into arguments with contracts, so I’ve decided not to do Gordon, Gino and Fred anymore because I want to be friends with the boys for many many years. So that’s it really, thank you for watching the show.’
However, the ‘real reason’ has now been revealed, with a source saying: ‘Gino, who loves a party, wanted all sorts of caveats put into his contract around working hours so that he could effectively stay up late and have a bit of a lie-in before filming. He doesn’t like early starts — and made that clear.
‘He also didn’t want to work more than six months of the year which, given the tight schedules they all have, was never going to be practical.’
The insider added to The Sun: ‘Gordon and Fred are obviously quite frustrated and couldn’t kowtow to his requests. It all seemed a bit ludicrous. At the moment things are pretty tense between them.’Fred and Gordon were reportedly shocked by Gino’s decision (Picture: ITV)
This comes after it was reported that his departure came as a shock.
A source said: ‘Everybody connected with the show was shocked by Gino’s post.
‘As far as bosses were concerned, talks were ongoing and a settlement was in reach.’
The insider added to Mail Online: ‘Contract negotiations are always difficult because of the trio’s schedules so the filming window where they can actually get the three of them together is pretty tight.
‘But clearly Gino has lost patience and pulled out.’The trio have kept viewers entertained across three seasons (Picture: Justin Mandel/Studio Ramsay/ ITV/STV)
‘Bosses hope to convince Gino to stay on with Gordon and Fred, because they genuinely have fun together and make great telly,’ they added.
Bruno announcing his departure from the show comes after Fred shared how much fun the trio get up to during filming, telling Metro.co.uk: ‘Look, we have a lot of fun, that’s for sure. And that’s why it’s great to do it. And I think that’s what shows on camera, because we have genuine fun.

‘Even if Gordon is just going crazy because we’re having too much fun, that in itself is funny, because you’re like, ‘why are you such a killjoy? Just enjoy life for God’s sake’.
‘Everybody’s different. It’s about live and let live. You’ve got to enjoy people for who they are, no matter what they are, you know?’
Metro.co.uk has approached ITV and reps for Gino for comment.
