There is nothing better than when Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield get a case of the giggles on This Morning, so we were certainly in for a treat when Gino D'Acampo came on.
Besides being a top chef, Gino is very good entertainment value – and no better than when he described the Italian version of toad in the hole earlier today (March 6).
The chef demonstrated to Holly and Phil how to make his native version of the famously British dish, which included, among its many ingredients, "thicker" sausages.
Cue the hosts' faces...
So what is his version actually called? Well, "sausage in the hole", as Gino revealed, which in no way brings to mind any sort of innuendo *ahem*.
"What makes the sausage bit Italian?" Holly then asked, the chef explaining that the dish was "thicker and tastier"... giving Holly and Phil the giggles.
Gosh guys, he just wants to explain what he is cooking up. Show some respect – honestly!
"This is my interpretation of sausage in the hole," Gino added, though Holly then tried to dispute the name by insisting on "toad in the hole".
However, the chef hit back, exclaiming: "But 'sausage in a hole' sounds fantastic!".
Alas, the presenters could take it no more and finally cracked up.
Phil joked: "Shall we save him now, or shall we let him dig the hole even deeper?"
C'mon Holly and Phil, one would think you weren't taking the whole thing entirely seriously?
This Morning airs on ITV.
