Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip series one rerun hailed ‘just what viewers needed’

Fans are ecstatic to have it back on, even if it's a repeat!

The first series of Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip returned to screens last night and had viewers in stitches.

The ITV programme, starring culinary whizzes Gordon Ramsay and Gino D’Acampo and First Dates host Fred Sirieix, aired in 2018.

And on Monday (April 19) evening, the first ever episode was back on TV for a repeat.

What did viewers say about the Gordon, Gino and Fred series one repeat?

On Twitter, viewers admitted they forgot how funny it was, calling it “much needed” TV during COVID times.

In the first episode, called The Italian Job, the trio travel to Italy.

It saw them sourcing ingredients for a meal for 50 people at Gino’s friend’s vow renewal ceremony.

Scooter antics and Gino’s dodgy driving

They also took whipped around Naples on scooters – hilariously enduring, and returning, angry beeps from other road users – and visited the area’s oldest pizzeria.
