Gino D’Acampo to Join Celebrity Juice

Gino D’Acampo has accepted ITV’s offer to join the Celebrity Juice team. He’ll be filling in for Holly Willoughby who is taking some time off for maternity leave. Holly is having her third baby and she and her family deserve the break she’s about to get. She is a great team leader on Celebrity Juice and although nobody could really replace her, Gino D’Acampo is a good choice for the interim.

Gino D’Acampo to stand-in for Holly Willoughby as she takes maternity leave. 

Gino D’Acampo is to join multi award-winning Celebrity Juice as team captain to replace Holly Willoughby as she takes maternity leave for her third baby.  Celebrity Juice returned for its 12th series on Thursday, and continues next Thursday, 10pm on ITV2. Holly filmed the first show of the series last week, and Gino takes her place from this week.


Cooking sensation Gino, will aim to come out on top against rival team captain Fearne, aided by a host of different celebrities each week, in the mightiest and most ludicrous of comedy panel shows. The two teams will battle it out in a series of chaotic challenges to prove who knows the most about the week’s celebrity news. As ever, boisterous host Keith Lemon will preside over activities.


Keith Lemon commented: “Looking forward to having me old pal from Sheffield cover for Holly whilst she’s sprouting. I don’t know how he’s gonna keep up that fake Italian accent for a whole series but it’s gonna be fantastico! As Gino says, or when he’s out of character ‘reet good’!”


Gino D’Acampo added: “I actually can’t believe it’s true…it’s going to be the gig of my year!  A show where I can express myself, not through food, but through my sex positions.  Which I will be very happy to demonstrate with Fearne.”

Can anyone take Holly Willoughby’s place? I have a hard time conceiving that but if anyone can be as funny it would have to be Gino D’Acampo. ITV executives arrived at the same conclusion. D’Acampo is excited about the opportunity and thinks it will be the highlight of his year.
