This Morning: Gino D’Acampo demands hosting role as fans issue plea

The ITV star wants to fill in for Holly Willoughby

This Morning favourite Gino D’Acampo has urged ITV to let him host the daytime show.

The TV chef regularly presents cooking segments on the show but hasn’t been offered the chance to present the main show.

However, that could be set to change.

Holly Willoughby has taken two weeks off to work on an upcoming BBC show.

As a result, Rochelle Humes has taken over her role and is presenting alongside Phillip Schofield.

Sadly, things haven’t been quite going to plan for the duo.

Gino was in the studio for the cooking segment when he blasted the show for being a complete “shambles”.

He said: “Oh my God, this is a shambles. I’m here watching a shambles going on.”

Rochelle and Phil both began to laugh at Gino’s remarks.

“It was yesterday too Gino. I’m not gonna lie,” said Rochelle.

Phil added: “It’s not getting any better.”

Gino then lashed out at ITV bosses for not giving him the chance to present the main show and give it a go himself.
