The Family Fortunes host was on Tuesday’s programme to give a masterclass on truffle.
He cooked scrambled eggs with truffle, a milanese with shavings of truffle and a pasta dish, again with truffle.
But of course, it wouldn’t be a Gino cooking segment without a cheeky comment or rude innuendo.
As he began cooking scrambled eggs, host Holly Willoughby reminded him he only had two-and-a-half minutes to finish the dish.
Gino replied: “Two-and-a-half minutes! Took my dad 65 seconds to do me,” as Holly and Phillip Schofield burst into hysterics.
He added: “Can you imagine in two-and-a-half minutes what I could do?”
Holly asked: “How do you know that?!”
Gino replied: “Because he always said to me,” to which Phil said: “He told you?!”
Two-and-a-half minutes! Took my dad 65 seconds to do me.
The chef said: “He told me, ‘In sixty seconds I made you.’ I was like, ‘Really?! And you tell this to everybody?” Sixty seconds.”
Holly laughed: “I’m never giving you a time update ever again!”
Viewers were in hysterics over Gino’s comments on Twitter.
Prepare for chaos in the kitchen as @Ginofantastico is here to give us a truffle masterclass… well, hopefully he will be! 😂

Meanwhile, Gino arrived late to the studio ahead of his segment.
At the start of the programme, Holly and Phil were telling viewers what was coming up on the show and Gino was nowhere to be seen.
Phil told viewers: “He did promise he would be here at the beginning of the show but as usual he hasn’t made it in.”
Holly added: “I love how we used to readjust our timings to make it fit for him and now we’re like, ‘whatever, he’s not here!’ Wherever you are, hurry up!”
Later in the show, Gino finally turned up.
What did Gino D’Acampo say?
As Gino walked on set, Phil said: “What time do you call this?” to which Gino said: “Buongiorno everybody!”
Phil said: “You were supposed to be here at quarter past 10… 10 o’clock in fact,” as Gino interrupted: “I know.
“It’s my great auntie’s birthday today so I had to make a phone call, say happy birthday.”
Holly said: “And you’ve got yourself a coffee I can see, that was obviously very important before you could do anything.”
Gino said: “No it gets handed to me as I walk in so it’s not like I wasted my time.”
Phil joked: “Does it?! How does he get treated like that?”
Gino added: “You make your own coffee? What’s the point of being in showbiz if you make your own coffee.”
This Morning airs on ITV, weekdays, from 10am.
