Gino D'Acampo thinks Melanie Sykes will be "great" in 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!'
The 44-year-old television presenter is rumoured to be heading to Australia to take part in the ITV show, and her friend Gino believes his "TV wife," who he works with on 'Let's Do Lunch with Gino and Mel', will be one to watch in the jungle.
The 38-year-old chef told BANG Showbiz: "Knowing Melanie she will go for anything, which is great."
The father-of-three won the ninth series of the reality programme in 2009 and said he believes the former 'Today with Des and Mel' host will be excellent at swapping the culinary delights of his kitchen for stomach-churning Bushtucker Trials.
The 'Celebrity Juice' team captain said: "She's a very good sport so she will be up for all of that".
The mother-of-two is just one of many famous faces rumoured to be heading down under to take part in the show, alongside 'The Only Way is Essex' star Gemma Collins and professional diver and 'Splash!' host Tom Daley.
Commenting on how he will cope while his friend is away, he added that they sometimes get bored with each other on the set of their daytime show, so being separated for a while could be beneficial for their friendship.
He joked: "When we are filming we get fed up of each other!"
Gino was speaking ahead of his appearance at the Ideal Home Show at Christmas (Idealhomeshowchristmas.co.uk) which takes place at Earls Court in London from November 19 to 23 and at Event City in Manchester between November 14 to 16.
