Gino D’Acampo strips to mankini for freezing dip leaving ITV viewers gobsmacked

Gino D'Acampo left viewers of Gordon, Gino and Fred: Desperately Seeking Santa in hysterics on Wednesday night after he stripped down to just a mankini for a sub-zero dip in a frozen lake.

The trio of television foodies headed to Finnish Lapland and got stuck in straight away, heading for a dip in a frozen lake to get their heats going.

Gordon Ramsay, 54, dropped his robe to reveal and pair of turquoise board shorts, while First Dates favourite Fred Sirieix, 48, squeezed into a pair of bright red budgie smugglers.

But This Morning star Gino, 44, said all he had was a mankini, and revealed his attire – as well as a whole load of skin – after he shrugged off his fluffy dressing gown.

Viewers couldn't believe their eyes and rushed to Twitter to share their thoughts.

One said: "Gino how good do you look in a mankini!"

Another wrote: "Gino you are just my hero," as well as a string of laughing emojis.

A third tweeted: "Only Gino would wear a mankini."

Someone else commented: "Gino! I'm howling."

And a fifth added: "Can't cope with Gino already."

It's safe to say Gino did not enjoy his time in the freezing cold water, as he joked the temperatures would make his penis retract into his body.

He told viewers: "I put my feet in there, then my knees and it hurt like you wouldn't believe."

Gordon didn't spend much time in the water either, while Fred managed to go neck deep for quite some time.

He laughed: "This is a perfect example of Gordon talking the talk but not walking the walk."
