And, after filming the show, he admitted he wasn’t “worried” about Gordon’s presenting prowess.

A game of precision and poise, Gino and Luciano must hold their nerves as they go up against the volatile board.

Gino joked: “I get to see what the game show host competition looks like up close.

“And I am pleased to announce I am not worried!”

When will the show be on screen?

An official air date is yet to be revealed, but Comic Relief’s main telethon is set to air on Friday March 19 on BBC One.

A spokesperson said the episode was a “high-stake and high-pressured standalone special”.

They added: “Gordon Ramsay is joined by fellow chef and friend Gino D’Acampo and his son, Luciano, as the father and son attempt to raise as much money as possible for Comic Relief.

“A game of precision and poise, Gino and Luciano must hold their nerves as they go up against the volatile board.

“One wrong move and it could all be over.”
