Tilly's name cropped up earlier this week on This Morning, when TV chef Gino D'Acampo appeared to confirm that she is dating his son, 17-year-old Luciano.

Speaking on the show, Gino joked that he gets "pleasure" from the fact their relationship "annoys" the Hell's Kitchen star.

He told hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby: "[Tilly and Luciano have] known each other for a few years now. I don't really want to say a lot because it’s none of my business.

"But what a great pleasure I have knowing that my son is dating Gordon’s daughter. Just to really annoy him. That will do it!"

Gordon had previously spoken about the teenagers' relationship and said it was a "nightmare".

During an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show in October, the host said as a pic of Luciano and Gino flashed up on the screen: "He's a very handsome young man. I think maybe Gino isn't the father!"

Jonathan continued: "He's a good looking man. Luciano, I believe. And he is dating your daughter?"

The chef replied, with a grin: "Nightmare!"

Gordon and his wife Tana have five children - Megan, 21, twins Holly and Jack, 19, Tilly, 18 and baby Oscar, who was born in April.
