Apparently he said on telly "Tense meat is tough meat....that's why you should be nice to your wife before bed because you want her all nice and soft..." or something similar. WTAF!! And on a family show like this morning!! I did like the bloke before but now I have decided to hate him. That is just vile isn't it?

I don't mind drunken blokes saying this to each other at the pub. But to me, this, on telly, is rather grossly inappropriate, very offensive and outrighly vile.It conjures some really unpleasant images. I hate it. AIBU?

Is this morning really s family show??? I don't personally agree the majority of people at home watching it are sahm with small kids that don't understand the content of that statement. why get so worked up about it. smile

Is there some law that you can't be on the telly if you are a criminal?

Or do you just not like people at some point in their life did something stupid, were convicted and paid the price for what they did.

Obviously he has been rehabilitated so good for him.

Don't know if he is a dick because I don't watch the bilge that is this morning. Mainly because Phillip Schofield is a dick.

He probably watches Allo Allo on a video boxset every night for innuendo inspiration.

I agree with everything wannaBe said.

He makes my skin crawl. My vagina seal shut and my clitoris invert inside my body.

I do like his recipe for Italian shepherds pie though.

He has been in the UK since 1995. Surely he would have developed a less OTT Italian accent by now. confused

Sparkling, he said tense meat, but had got his words mixed up and actually meant something else, I think tough meat or something. Hence, there was banter between the 3 of them and one of them said "no one likes tense meat" and Gino said "no that is why you should be nice to your wife before you make love!"

It was just a bit of banter and a joke, that's all.

Oh right land. I haven't seen This Morning for a while, I didn't know he was the resident chef type person. Where's Phil Vickery and that hilarious bloke that does the curries?

HesterBurnitall Fri 08-Feb-13 22:09:32

Just a funny little joke comparing women to pieces of meat so don't get all focused on what he says? Right.

landofsoapandglory Fri 08-Feb-13 22:10:13

He's still there, Sparkling they all do different days. I love the bolke who does curries, he has his own show on Channel 5.

I would be tense meat if I was Mrs D' Campo. I don't know nothing about no robbery by the way but I wouldn't excuse it as some mistake. But D'campo is always making this sexy type talk. Yuk.

He served his sentence for braking into Paul Young's house in 1995. So we're talking almost twenty years ago for a one off offense. But let's just hold that one conviction against him for the rest of his life shall we? Just because people don't like him. hmm

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Fri 08-Feb-13 22:12:04

Should we worry about what anyone says then?

Or just sit around drinking cups of tea while the world just dribbles on around us?

See I put Gino on a par with Keith Lemon (& fuck me are they funny when they're together on celeb juice) so it's the sort of thing I'd expect him to say-yabu, it's amusing.

NoelHeadbands Fri 08-Feb-13 22:13:42

I don't think it actually was Paul Young's house?

But he'd laid his hat there, so...

PlinkyLove Fri 08-Feb-13 22:18:07

Look. I never been done for no crime and I am probs better cook than d'campo twaT. MAYBE AS a lady I cou;d start to earn what TwT D;campo earns??

Noel grin

I bet Paul Young was worried he'd come back and stay grin

I was more freaked out by the topic of discussion on the Wright stuff yesterday. It's the first time I've switched it on in ages and was confronted with the topic 'should women put up with sleazy come ons and the occasional grope from car salesmen to get some money off their car?'

LadyBeagleEyes Sat 09-Feb-13 00:17:33

I remember him saying that, and Phil telling him off, saying he'd gone too far.
Didn't bother me at all.

Hi all. Forgive me but I didn't actually watch the episode as I haven't watched TM for a long time. I read about this somewhere and I hated it, so I suppose it sounds worse written down in some tabloid that witnessing the actual banter.

Robinsparkle- I do agree about some of TM'S content not suitable for children.My dcs are still very small anyway so they are on cbeebies for now..
Plinkylove- I totally agree. But I did have a soft sport for him in the junglethough but now its gone.
Madam- I do like Phil despite some gaffes he has made recently following Savile revelations.
I am happy for him for turning his life around but burglary!! I know its not like murder/rape but still...
Stiff grin
Noel grin
Barred I dislike Keith Lemon!

I don't understand why he feels the need to be funny, then fails to and just end up desperately pathetic/offensive

AmberLeaf Sat 09-Feb-13 01:41:18

Yeah I went right off him when I read about his burglary conviction.

SaggyOldClothCatpuss Sat 09-Feb-13 01:46:37

Hate Gino if you like, but I bloody love him! I have nothing against smut, love it even smut on daytime TV. I dont care if he was a burglar, its hardly a hanging offence compared to other popular peoples records, or if he is a fake italian. He is tv eye candy and he does it for me!

And he does have a point. Tense meat IS tough meat!

I don't mind watch Gino getting hot and sweaty in the kitchen. I also don't care if he burgled some house 20 year ago.

He is quite funny.

Is anyone else reading the thread in his voice?!
