D'Acampo and Sirieix to reunite for eco travel show – RTE.ie

TV personalities Gino D’Acampo and Fred Sirieix will attempt to travel sustainably around Europe for a new eco travel and cookery TV series.
Confronting the environmental impact of their travels, the series has a working title of Gino And Fred’s Emission Impossible.
First Dates maitre d’ Sirieix and TV chef D’Acampo previously embarked on a string of adventures with Gordon Ramsay for the popular series Gordon, Gino And Fred: Road Trip.
The announcement of this new show follows D’Acampo’s quitting of Gordon, Gino And Fred: Road Trip earlier this year, citing “stressful” contract discussions.
ITV says that in the new programme, Emission Impossible, eco-conscious Sirieix is “determined to re-educate, recycle and re-engineer his eco-sceptic sidekick (D’Acampo) in their own backyard.”
The duo will visit Austria, where capital city Vienna was ranked as the greenest city in the world in 2020, and will track down sustainable produce and immerse themselves in environmentally-friendly lifestyles.
The pair said: “We’re thrilled to be upcycled by ITV for another action-packed adventure and can’t wait to cook up some fantastic sustainable dishes whilst hopefully stirring up debate around these important issues.
“We might not come up with the recipe to save the planet but we hope to entertain, inform and inspire the audience to think about making changes in their own lives.”
Meanwhile, the last and potentially final series of Gordon, Gino And Fred: Road Trip will air later this year, which sees the trio head to Spain in search of the best seafood, wine and tapas.
The first series of the ITV show aired in 2018 and followed the three men on a European adventure, organising a special ceremony in each of their home countries – Italy, Scotland and France.
