ITV star returns to controversial show after on-set accidents forced bosses to cancel series

Gino D'Acampo is gearing up to resume filming his ITV show, which was previously marred by on-set mishaps. The culinary star's travel programme, Emissions Impossible, is making a comeback despite its cancellation six months prior due to a series of unfortunate events, including a toboggan accident and long production days in Austria that left Gino with a fever.

Despite these setbacks, it seems the show has been given another chance, with production slated to recommence in the Alps shortly.

A TV source told The Sun: "It's quite unusual for a show to be shelved quite so spectacularly, only to be brought back months later. Usually they end up getting written off completely.”

The source continued: “But ITV clearly felt like this was worth going the extra mile for. Emissions Impossible was all about being greener when travelling. Ironically, by the time they've finished filming, all the presenters, producers and crew will have flown from Britain into Europe - and back again - twice."

The last filming stint in October didn't go as planned, leaving the future of the six-part series, which was set to explore the Croatian islands, up in the air. Now, it seems plans for a second series might just take flight after all.

TV chef Gino D'Acampo has also made some rather surprising confessions about his feelings towards parenting, despite being a father of three.

The Italian cook, who is dad to Luciano, 22, Rocco, 19, and Mia, 12, with his wife Jessica, whom he married in 2002, has been quite candid about his lack of enthusiasm for typical children's activities.

Gino, known for his cheeky charm and culinary skills, often shares adorable pictures of his family on Instagram, but he's admitted that he struggles with engaging in childlike play.

He explained his parenting style, saying: "What do you say to kids? You can't have a proper conversation. I'm not the sort of father who sits there for two hours just because he has to. I sit there for 20 minutes because I want to. Then you get the best of Gino. My daughter, who is going to be 12, can have proper conversations now. That's great."

The revelation came after Gino shocked the Loose Women panel by declaring he 'doesn't really like children'. As the studio audience reacted with surprise, he clarified: "Is it okay to say that? I'm one of those parents that when I say I don't like children, don't think I see a child and then kick it. I mean I don't like to do children's stuff.

"My daughter she is 12 today. I don't like the glitter stuff and the finger painting. There's stuff everywhere and I'm thinking 'I don't really want to do this'. I was not born to do this! The only difference is I actually say it. I say to my wife, 'I don't want to do this, it's boring, I've got nothing to say to this child'".
