Gino D'Acampo says he is unlikely to return to ITV2 panel show 'Celebrity Juice' because his agent would "kill" him
Gino D'Acampo thinks his agent may "kill" him if he signs up for a second series of 'Celebrity Juice'.
The 38-year-old team captain stood in for Holly Willoughby on the 12th series of the comedy panel show while she took maternity leave, but confessed he is unlikely to return because his saucy antics on the programme have affected his career as a family-friendly celebrity chef.
He said: "After all the shenanigans of this series I don't think it's going to be very good for my cooking career if I keep doing 'Celebrity Juice'. My agent will kill me.
"Let's just say I lost a few family-orientated sponsors. I wouldn't say, 'Oops', I'd say. 's**t'. But saying that, we gained a few others..."
The father-of-three was involved in several racy activities including flashing his bottom and simulating sex with Mel Sykes - his co-host on ITV cookery show 'Let's Do Lunch' - during the series' 10 episodes.
However, with 33-year-old Holly set to return for the next set of shows, Gino admitted he will miss working on the hilarious show.
He added: "It's been the best time ever. It's great, it's one of these places where you don't even feel like you're going to work.
"You show up, you have a few pints of Guinness and off you go straight into filming, which is really just having fun with your friends."
Despite his agent's reluctance to see the star return to the scandalous ITV2 show, he revealed he would find it difficult to reject fellow regulars Keith Lemon and Fearne Cotton because they are such good friends.
He added to The Sun newspaper "It would be very hard to say no to Keith and Fearne - we socialise outside of the show."
