“Food and family are everything to me and I’m so excited to take my family on a journey across Bella Italia,” he said.

“We are going to discover all sorts of amazing places, people and excellent new ingredients together. It’s going to be fantastico! Look out Italy, the cooking D’Acampos are coming!”

ITV’s commissioning editor Sue Murphy, ITV Head of Factual Entertainment added: “We’ve watched Gino go on trips with his mates, but this is Gino the family man, with the people closest to him, taking them back to his roots and the region that influenced his lifelong passion for food.

“We’ll see how he gets on reigniting his love for the flavours he grew up with and how his family put up with him!”

The seven-part series is set to air at a date later in the year.
