The trio will return to screens tonight!
Gordon, Gino, Fred, and Gino’s mankini are set to make a festive comeback tonight on ITV, with a Christmas special of their hilarious show, Road Trip – and on this trip, they’re ‘desperately seeking Santa’. This time – as you’ve probably guessed already – the two outspoken chefs and First Dates Fred will be heading to Lapland on a mission to meet Santa himself. And it promises more laughs and chaos than ever before.
Images revealed ahead of the show’s premiere tonight show the trio enjoying the colder temperatures on their snowmobiles, as well as Gino stripping down into his vibrant mankini before heading for a soothing sauna.
ITV says of the special episode: “As the three foodie friends seek out the best the country has to offer their expert palates, they’ll face plenty of off menu distractions. This is the land of ice swimming and saunas, snowmobiles and huskies, and it wouldn’t be a Gordon, Gino & Fred Road Trip, unless they got snowballs deep in everything this extraordinary country has to offer.” Sounds like pure entertainment to me.
From sampling reindeer with Lapland’s indigenous Sami people, to running around like headless chickens to deliver Gino’s daughter’s letter to Santa in person and some Christmas cooking tips from Gino himself – it looks as though like we’re in for a wild, festive ride with the three amigos.
Desperately Seeking Santa airs tonight, 16th December, at 9pm on ITV.
