Everyone’s favourite cooking trio are set to go out on another huge adventure in a brand new third series of the ITV hit, Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip.
Speaking to LADbible, Fred Sirieix revealed filming was set to start at the beginning of August but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Fred added: “Yes, it’s happening. We’ve put the route and the travel plan together, we’re going to go next year. I can’t wait to get started.
“I can’t say where, but we’ve got the destination. We’re putting the trip together now and it’s looking pretty good, I have to say.”
Fred also said he’d been missing the boys in lockdown, despite how much they wind each other up.
He added: “We’re missing each other like crazy. I think about them all the time. We have a group chat, so I just put a message in there the other day to tell them I missed them and couldn’t wait to see them.
“Gordon replied that he missed us more, with four kisses. Then Gino replied saying we should go for a drink, with five kisses
“That tells you exactly how they are when we’re away. They’re just so competitive. Gordon is like this big alpha male lion, who is fast, fast, fast. And Gino is more laid back, takes his time.
“But Gordon is so competitive that he just works Gino up to the point of doing things that he wouldn’t normally do.
“We were in the US (for series two) for a month, and it was the greatest thing I’ve ever done in my life. But we’ll be away for a bit longer this time.”
Fred also chatted about his favourite moments from their previous travels, adding: “I loved being in the watering hole in Texas. I had such a feeling of elation and joy.
“The goat yoga was pretty surreal. Wrestling in Mexico. In the changing room, Gordon was shitting himself. I had to give him a hug to get him to come out. We felt like gladiators coming out of the Coliseum.”
He also explained that the show didn’t feel like work at all: “Do you know what. I love them. I actually love them. And I think of them often. I’ve opened a new restaurant in London and I often ask myself what they would do, or take inspiration from them.
“Sometimes they get on my nerves. You just can’t argue with Gordon because even when you’re right, you’re wrong.
“But I couldn’t spend that much time with them if I didn’t love them. It wouldn’t work.”
Who else is excited for this, then?
Phillip Schofield makes urgent plea to This Morning viewers in Tier 3
“Support local businesses!”
Yesterday it was confirmed which regions in England would be going into which tier when lockdown ends next week, with Greater Manchester facing the strictest restrictions, Tier 3.
The confirmation brought bad news for most of the North West, as well as large parts of Northern England, as they were also plunged into the tightest restrictions come December 2nd.
Phillip Schofield pleaded with This Morning viewers to support local businesses as large parts of the country are put into Tier 3.
Making a passionate plea on the morning show, Phil hit out at the health secretary Matt Hancock after delaying his announcement.
Phillip and co-host Holly Willoughby, as well as guests Vanessa Feltz and Nick Ferrari, reacted to the news on the show.
Nick said: “People who own pubs in the likes of Redcar, Hartlepool. my heart goes out to them.
“I hope they’re there come 2021.”
Adding to Nick’s concerns, Phillip said while looking directly down the lens: “If you have a pub or restaurant that you know is down the road and they’re doing takeouts in Tier 3, make sure, that if you want them at the end of the road by the end of all this, that it’s them that you’re going to for takeouts if they’ve set it up, rather than the big usual ones you might get your Saturday night takeaway from.
“Support local businesses!”

“By live-streaming this performance exclusively to Salford primary schools, free of charge, we hope to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to more than 10,000 children across Salford.”

The Chase welcomes former contestant as brand new Chaser ‘The Menace’
There’s a brand new Chaser in town named ‘The Menace’ ready to battle with contestants.
Irish genius, Darragh Ennis is a neuroscientist who first appeared on the show in 2017 where he played against Paul and performed incredibly.
He won a whopping amount of money that was dramatically decreased by the other contestants on the episode.
The brainbox will be joining Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan, Shaun ‘The Dark Destroyer’ Wallace, Mark ‘The Beast’ Labbett, Anne ‘The Governess’ Hegerty and Paul ‘The Sinnerman’ Sinha and will be called ‘The Menace’
Darragh said: “I’m so pleased to be the sixth Chaser. It’s brilliant to be on such an amazing quiz team, and so much fun working with Bradley Walsh.
“It’s such an exciting opportunity and I can’t wait to take on more contestants!”
Host Bradley Walsh joked: “Another Chaser? ANOTHER CHASER? That’s another person cleverer than me on The Chase. I must have words with the producers.
“But I can’t wait to educate Darragh on the important things in life; custard creams, cowboy films and real ale.”
Fans are delighted Darragh will become the sixth Chaser and that no one is leaving.
One wrote: “Exciting but reallyyyy strange seeing a new Chaser in the chair!”
While another added: “I know! I know I’m late and feck me, it’s the newbie!!! About time!! #TheChase “
He’s already had his first stab of the show but it didn’t go too well as the first player beat him.
What do you make of the newbie?
