Appearing in his recipe segment, the Italian stallion was talking about his new beard, revealing that he likes it but his wife, Jessica Stellina Morrison was not a fan.

The chef had hosts Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby blushing as he told the presenters about his wife’s protest, saying, “My wife is telling me off because of the beard. She said to me, ‘If you don’t shave up there… I won’t shave down…”
