Gino has announced that he’s had no option but to quit the popular ITV show Gordon, Gino and Fred Road Trips due to a range of reasons including the filming schedule.
The celebrity Chef and media personality said that he, Gordon Ramsay and Fred Sirieix are still friends, but that he had to step back from the popular show, which is set to launch fifth series later next month.
The popular series first aired back in 2018 and saw the trio jetting across the world including US, Greece and Italy with the next series set in Spain.

“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.
“Personal problems as well because when I have to change things with my family it is very complicated and also because contracts.
“Because contracts start to become very complicated and very stressful, I personally value the friendship with Gordon and Fred so much that I would rather the friendship than arguments with the contract.
“So I have decided not to do it anymore because I want to be friends with the boys for many, many years ahead.”
An ITV spokesperson said: “A brand new series of Gordon, Gino & Fred’s Road Trip in Spain will be broadcast on ITV1 and ITVX later this year.”
Fans of the show shared their disappointment at the news with one person writing: “Aww I’m gutted but can see why! Thank you for the laughs”.
And another wrote: “Very very sad but totally understand your reason, it was an amazing show”. And a third wrote: “Nooooool! It’s my favorite show! I almost piss myself of laughter everytime!”.
The popular TV Chef and businessman has revealed he is opening a new Italian Restaurant & Bar at the Leeds Marriott Hotel next month.
The hotel is situated on Trevelyan Sq, Boar Lane, Leeds and is set to have a dose of Gino’s restaurant which is donned in an opulent, glamour and first-class style designed by international restaurant designer Bernard Carroll.
