Ben Shephard makes awkward gaffe with Gino D’Acampo on GMB today

Muy bien Ben!

On GMB today (September 1), Ben Shephard made an awkward blunder during his interview with Gino D’Acampo.

Ben, 46, chatted to the star TV chef about his upcoming TV projects.

But it wasn’t long before the host got his Italian all mixed up during an attempted greeting.

Mamma mia!

What happened with Gino on GMB today?

Ben returned to the show after the summer break and he and co-host Susanna Reid welcomed Family Fortunes host Gino to the show.

“Still to come, we’re talking family feuds and food with the one and only Gino D’Acampo. Morning Gino!” Ben began the chat.

“Bonjourno, Come stai?” Gino replied via video link.

“Muy buen! Is that right?” Ben said.

But, of course, Ben responded in Spanish, not Italian – and Gino was quick to pull him up on the blunder.

“‘Muy buen’ is Spanish, it’s not Italian!”

Italian lessons for Ben!

Looking a bit sheepish, Ben then replied: “What’s the Italian for ‘good’, ‘we’re good’?”

Gino then answered on GMB today: “Tutto bene. Tutto bene.”

Ben then chuckled: “Tutto bene, there we go. Tutto bene, Gino.

“We’re going to be chatting to Gino very shortly… and more Italian lessons for me.”

Some thought her questions were too long and didn’t get to the point quick enough.

While others thought she got the tone spot on.

Welcome back to the hotseat, Susanna!
