Television star Gino D’Acampo is finding himself in hot water as complaints from staff about his behaviour have surfaced. According to The Mail on Sunday, employees working on the popular ITV show “Gordon, Gino & Fred: Road Trip,” where Gino stars alongside Gordon Ramsay and Fred Sirieix, have come forward with their concerns.
Rumours are stirring that his co-stars are feeling uneasy about Gino’s conduct both on the set and at social events like wrap parties. As a result, the situation has prompted discussions among the show’s producers, who have been forced to address their grievances.
Gino has since made the decision to step away from the show to his departure to preserve his friendship with his co-stars rather than allowing the tension to strain their relationship.
The recent story surrounding Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby’s rumored falling out has created yet another challenging situation for ITV. Philip Schofield, who recently made headlines, has stepped down from his hosting roles at ITV, including This Morning, following his admission of having an affair with a younger colleague.
Several media figures and former employees, including Eamonn Holmes have come forward with allegations. Holmes, who departed from the show in December 2021, has expressed feeling unceremoniously let go when ITV executives decided it was time for him to move on.
During his hosting stint on GB News, Holmes claimed that Schofield had created a negative atmosphere on This Morning, resulting in animosity towards him among the show’s staff.
While Gino’s choice to quit “Gordon, Gino & Fred: Road Trip,” is not specifically motivated by the complaints he himself has received, the staff’s concerns have caught the attention of Studio Ramsay, the production company founded by Gordon Ramsay.
Insiders are aware that Gino’s so-called behaviour has become a subject of conversation within the industry, which is far from ideal for the show’s crew, contributors, and television executives.
While Gino did not provide a response regarding the complaints, a source from the set mentioned that these allegations might be attributed to a “generational issue.”
In a recent statement, Mr. D’Acampo addressed his choice to depart from the show down to the difficulty of aligning schedules. As contract negotiations grew increasingly complex, the situation became stressful, prompting him to step away.
When approached for comment, ITV declined to provide a statement on the matter.
