Italian Chef Gino D'ACampo boosted his ladies man reputation in the This Morning kitchen on Tuesday and also managed to leave Christine Bleakley a little red faced.

Before Gino kicked off his recipe demonstration, Christine - who was filling in for regular This Morning host Holly Willoughby - attempted to show off her knowledge of the Italian language.

Despite a slight mistake with her vocabulary, Gino seemed rather impressed and told the Belfast beauty: "This is the first time I have done the show with you, which I am so excited (about).

He casually added: "I was (just) saying to Phillip (Schofield) ...you are super fit."

A giggling Christine was taken aback by the unexpected compliment, simply replying: "Why thank you, I'm blushing Gino."

This prompted Phillip to scold the chef with a look, before telling him to "back off".

"She's got a really big bloke... watch out," he warned, referring to Christine's fiancé, footballer Frank Lampard.

Gino did not seem bothered by Phillip's words of caution, saying: "I'm just paying a compliment, it's fine."

We'll have to wait and see if Frank agrees.
