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?

He says stuff like that all the time. I can't get that upset about it and think its quite funny.



Well actually, men should be nice to their wives.

Not sure they should need to be told that but really, I cant be offended at Gino.

It's not nice, but deciding to hate for it?

You are over reacting.

Bobyan Fri 08-Feb-13 19:25:10

I have more of an issue with the fact that he's a convicted burglar, than the crap that sprouts from his gob TBH...

Dryjuice25 Fri 08-Feb-13 19:46:25

Bobyan, now there is another reason to deslike him.

My issue is: Who cooks tough meat/steak and instantly thinks of a frigid wife. I struggle to reconcile the two. The other one is meat and the other one is what??!!!

Missymoo, I can't see the funny side, I wish I could laugh it off lol

YABVU. Gino di campo is amazing. He does come out with some dubious interesting comments on morning tv though. A recent favourite of mine was "ladies, real men like meat. Only dogs like to chew on bones." X

FutTheShuckUp Fri 08-Feb-13 21:17:47

Ditto Bobyan- no idea why he's so liked tbh

PlinkyLove Fri 08-Feb-13 21:28:21

Gino di Campo is well twattish and often talks about twatting his wife which is well exploitative. He is a well known twat who is inexplicably popular on the old Mumsnet and I myself have come under fire for pointing out his extreme twattishness . he is small and annoying as well as being a professional twat and rubbish at the old cooking business. I happen to know, he has an exeptionally small dick and dosen't have a clue what to do with it however patient and encouraging you could possibly be with him. Tense meat, I'm sad to report, he is .

flaggybannel Fri 08-Feb-13 21:29:20

convicted burglar? Is he really? I never knew that!
Everydays a school day!

willesden Fri 08-Feb-13 21:30:55

That's what happens when you watch the bilge that is This Morning. Plenty of other channels to watch, if morning tv is your thing.

FutTheShuckUp Fri 08-Feb-13 21:32:28

Plinky- I just lol'ed in real life

PlinkyLove Fri 08-Feb-13 21:40:21

Thank you Fut. He's a bitch isn't he?

I don't like him. he gives me the creeps, and his accent sounds fake. grin

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Fri 08-Feb-13 21:45:23

He's really from Swindon and can only cook pot noodles.

PlinkyLove Fri 08-Feb-13 21:46:02

ya da ya da ya da. I could be a fake Italian too!

I find him really sleazy. Every time I see him on anything he's making 'jokes' like that. If it was a one off it wouldn't bother me but it's constant, just seems desperate and odd.

wannaBe Fri 08-Feb-13 21:47:21

who cares if he's a convicted burglar. Presumably he has now served his sentence for said burglary? As long as it wasn't murder/rape/child abuse I don't see what the big deal is. Some people commit crime. They serve sentences for said crimes and then go on to lead full and honest lives and contribute to society. Or should everyone's past be held against them - for ever? hmm

As for other comments, I can't get worked up about them realllly. Clearly he makes them for effect - and clearly people with nothing better to worry about get over excited about them. get a grip.

He likes to 'accidentally' mispronounce words so they sound a bit smutty. hmm

I agree with Pelvic.

The only thing worse than GDC is him together with Mel 'Giddyknickers' Sykes. angry

CauDyGeg Fri 08-Feb-13 21:52:35

He makes me laugh blush

landofsoapandglory Fri 08-Feb-13 21:54:37

It wasn't quite like that. It was said banter between him, Phillip and Holly. It certainly wasn't one sentence, one or the other of them spoke in between too, IIRC. It made me laugh at the time, I know that much.

I think you are over reacting, especially as this happened days, if not at least a week ago and from your OP it sounds like you didn't even hear it!

PlinkyLove Fri 08-Feb-13 21:55:28

WannaBe, have you ever been burgled by some low life? Its not great. Also he is a bit of an idiot and rich for playing an Italian Chef of some import. He is probably a twat on many levels. Also quite an ommetto.

RobinSparkles Fri 08-Feb-13 21:56:15

YABU for saying that This Morning is a "Family Show". When the hell was it ever a family show? hmm

I know it's on in the mornings but they talk about lots of stuff that children shouldn't hear.

WTF is 'tense meat' anyway? confused

Mytwobeautifulgirls Fri 08-Feb-13 21:57:09

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.

stifnstav Fri 08-Feb-13 21:58:13

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

I agree with everything wannaBe said.

NoelHeadbands Fri 08-Feb-13 22:00:44

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

Yeah yeah stop trying to be a wannabee wannaBe wannabe confused

landofsoapandglory Fri 08-Feb-13 22:06:12

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.

PlinkyLove Fri 08-Feb-13 22:11:12

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.

wannaBe Fri 08-Feb-13 22:11:54

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?

BarredfromhavingStella Fri 08-Feb-13 22:12:55

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

Bobyan Fri 08-Feb-13 22:25:25

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

MrsKeithRichards Fri 08-Feb-13 22:37:06

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.

Dryjuice25 Sat 09-Feb-13 01:33:52

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?!

SaggyOldClothCatpuss Sat 09-Feb-13 02:04:13

I watched him cook on This Morning starkers! I was all hot and bothered! grin I was gutted last year, my boss booked us into a two day food show. I got to work there the day Gino wasnt the guest chef! I was very upset!

Dryjuice25 Sat 09-Feb-13 11:41:36

SaggyOld I used to like the guy but not to that extent! grin

twinklesparkles Sat 09-Feb-13 12:31:50

He is awful.. There's just something about him..

Annoys me so much women swooning over him and his so called family values..

He's done 2 years In prison for burglary hmm

He doesn't seem to mention that when he's banging on about family meals and his wife/kids ect

So he doesn't live in the love of the common people hmm

Dryjuice25 Sat 09-Feb-13 13:06:45

Exactly twinkle and was it 2 years wow? didn't even care to google this!
I was totally riled by the comparison of meat and woman! Vile Vile Vile.
Now, because of such a crass remark, I've relegated him in my 'love to hate list' with the likes of John Mcririck, Keith Lemon and Silvio Balesconi (sp?) and one of my vile exes! grin

Now I wish I could tell Peter Andre not to associate himself with him as he is kind of ok and I fancy him just a little bit though I disaprove he got with a girl he knew when she was 16 or less, which makes him look like a dirty old man!

Hmmm, I can see how it could come across as sexist but as a massage therapist i know that he speaks the truth. The same could be said of a man, but as he is presumably heterosexual he's less likely to bring that up as its not part of his experience.

I find this difficult to get het up about. And I really don't like watching the guy, i tend to switch over/off if he comes on.

I wouldn't trust him with my spatula

toddlerama Sat 09-Feb-13 13:32:57

Gino is slime. He cheats on his wife openly and behaves scuzzily. I don't like him.

Dryjuice25 Sat 09-Feb-13 14:03:22

SpringBulbs I have to say I'm entitled to dislike the fact he is actually a convicted burglar! I hate him for it though as knew what he was doing and didn't give a hoot about his victims who probably are still haunted by his actions and probably feel sick everytime they have an unintended glance at him on telly being offensive as he has predilection for being a vile mysogynistic person as it happens.

He is now reformed and I give him that and I wish most criminals turn a corner like he did. I commend that and good for him.

He cheats on his wife which is none of my business I give you that, behaves scuzzily like toddlerama observes and sees the similarity between tough meat and a frigid wife sigh

Dryjuice25 Sat 09-Feb-13 14:11:21

I pity his wife though. What she might put up with! At one point he said, on telly, he massages her breasts in a certain way to make them grow!! WTAF!

To him she really must be like a peace of meat which needs to be tenderised for his own benefit. I couldn't live with someone who is openely like that and god/ fuck knows what he must be like in private.

FutTheShuckUp Sat 09-Feb-13 14:13:27

He is a grade A berk. He was due to do an interview with a commercial radio station but had a hissy fit and didn't go because a people carrier came to pick him up. What an utter prat

Dryjuice25 Sat 09-Feb-13 14:29:47

FutTheShuckUp Your nickname! Just what I want to tell Gino, because most times he opens his mouth, shit comes out of it grin

re: the OTT accent, my mother's been in England since 1993 and she still sounds like the Dolmio lady!

I like him on This Morning, it's always on in the staffroom on my lunchbreak.

I don't mind the sleazy comments I'm used to Italian men! but I think I might have to like him a bit less now I know about the burgelering.

Dryjuice25 Sat 09-Feb-13 17:08:23

SpringBulbsI know, I know, I know what it sounds like grin but it's true. I should wait till he has a nap! but can't seem to log out when I should and have just told the world I typed with baby on my lap mum of the year me!
