This Morning's Gino D'Acampo has opened up about his son Luciano's relationship with Gordon Ramsay's daughter Tilly. The TV chef appeared on the ITV daytime show to talk about his new book Getting Cooking with Wiskella when he was asked what he thought of the teenagers' romance by hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield. "Tilly is beautiful," he gushed. "They've known each other for a few years now. I don't really want to say a lot because it's none of my business." Gino continued to joke that he actually gets "great pleasure" out of the fact that his son is dating the Hell's Kitchen star's daughter because it's fun to rub his friend and Gordon, Gino and Fred's Road Trip co-star up the wrong way.

In October, Gordon called Tilly's bond with Luciano a "f**king nightmare" during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show. The hot-headed celebrity chef revealed that they found out about the youngsters' relationship while he was in the US filming with Gino and First Dates star Fred Sirieix. ITV "We were driving through San Francisco and FaceTiming Luciano, and all of a sudden Tilly pops up behind them, and they are out having lunch," Gordon recalled. "I think they are friends."
