Gino D’Acampo tells Phillip Schofield he’ll ‘show him the hole’ in awkward chat

This Morning chef Gino D’Acampo never fails to put a smile on viewers' faces with his unpredictable remarks on the hit ITV daytime show.

The 45-year-old star appeared on Tuesday’s instalment of the show as he prepared to show fans how to make the popular English dish Toad in the Hole.

Before he started cooking up a storm in the kitchen, the dad-of-three stepped up to the plate to give advice to callers at home with their unique problems.

The final caller of the day asked for any recommendations for hen party activities, for which the chef recommended butlers in the buff who cook up a delicious meal for attendees and strip down to almost nothing.

He used the cheeky story as a smooth transition to introducing his weekly dish to viewers at home but the Italian stallion had a few questions about the name before he got started.

Phillip Schofield nervously asked: “What are you cooking for us?”

To which he replied: “I’m going to make sausage in the hole which you guys call … Toad in the Hole,” before he asked: “What is a toad?”

Giggling already, Phil answered: “A toad is an amphibian.”

After learning the origin behind the ridiculous name, the chef argued the title should be changed to make the dish more appealing to tourists.

He explained: “See, to me this makes no sense. That's why this dish is not popular in restaurants because think about tourists that comes to the restaurant.

“They’re gonna go on Google Maps and go on Google Translate and they’re gonna go ‘I don’t want an amphibian in a hole’. Nobody is gonna sell it.”

He added: “If you want to sell this dish, you sell it as a sausage in a hole.”

Feeling overly analytical, the 59-year-old TV presenter argued: “But it’s not in a hole. If you’re gonna sell the dish accurately, you’re gonna say that is sausage in batter.”

Before Gino reassured him: “No, there is a hole. I will show you the hole later,” before the trio burst into laughter on set.

And it’s fair to say fans found the awkward exchange hilarious to watch as they shared their thoughts on Gino’s understandable argument on Twitter.

One viewer penned: “For that alone Gino wins … he’s gonna show Phillip the ‘hole’ later and then to rip the p**s out of Phillip’s reaction was gold.”

Another fan of the show added: “Never thought I'd say this but they need Gino back for more phone ins like that!!! Hilarious!!!!!!!!”

A third chimed: "Gino calling Toad in the Hole ‘SAUSAGE IN THE HOLE’ which he said is the perfect food for a Hen Party. Then telling Phillip he’ll show him the hole later. Had no idea daytime TV was like this,” with three cry laughing emojis.

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV
