Gino D'Acampo is most loved for his unfiltered sense of humour, punchy one liners and not to mention his passion for Italian cuisine.

Many would assume that the 44-year-old found fame on the daytime favourite This Morning, however Gino's first TV gig landed after his company Bontà Italia struck up a deal to produce ready meals for Tesco Finest range.

This led to his first on-screen stint with Great Food Live and later I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here in 2009.

In 2010, he became a permanent fixture on the ITV programme, working alongside co-stars Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield who were often reduced to tears of laughter because of him.

More recently the famous chef has toured with Gordon Ramsay and Fred Serieix on the hilarious show – Gordon, Gino and Fred's Road Trip and left cooking well and truly behind as host of Family Fortunes.

But what do we really know about the TV chef's life away from the cameras.

Daily Star explores Gino's lavish two homes.

Gino's Sardinian home could quite possibly be fit for a king.

The Italian inspired home boasts a huge stone and cave-like fireplace that is situated centrally in a cosy seating area.

In keeping with the authentic style, Gino and his wife Jessica Stellina Morrison have kitted out their pad with modern leather furniture, giving it an expensive feel.

As well as the exposed brick work, the floors appear to be marble throughout.

When showing off some home cooked specialities, Gino will often position himself next to a fabulous cast iron staircase which is seemingly quite the feature within his kitchen.

Like the rest of his home, each step is made from what appears to be fine Italian marble.

It's no wonder, Gino like to parade this part of his home.

The kitchen boasts a duo of green coloured tiles that make up the feature wall in front of grad ten hob oven.

Another key focal point in the room is the medieval style chandelier that hangs from ceiling.

The property includes a huge double garage which is decked out with white brick work.

This is where Gino parks and protects his pride and joy – a ruby red Ferrari with black alloy wheels.

Inside, it's clear that Gino and Jessica like to keep things warm yet traditional with their furniture selection.

A key element of their living area is the cosy but roaring fire, along with a luxurious velvet sofa.

The parquet flooring and mint green walls add a modern twist when teamed with their antique furnishings.

The bedroom area is rarely displayed on social media, however Gino seemed pretty pleased with a cheeky sign that was situated above his mahogany style bed.

Framed on black wood and mounted on white card, it reads in French: "Voulez Vous Coucher Avec Moi Ce Soir."

Which translates to: "Do you want to sleep with me tonight."
