Gino D’Acampo is securing his £8m family fortune by setting up his own property firm with wife Jessica

TELLY star Gino D’Acampo is securing his family fortune by setting up his own property firm.

The popular This Morning celebrity chef has a chain of restaurants to his name and has made millions from his food firms, TV work and cookbooks.

But the pandemic has clobbered the world’s food business and now the new host of legendary show Family Fortunes has formed his own real estate outfit.

The 44-year-old father-of-three has set up Gino D’Acampo IP Ltd with wife Jessica to buy and sell properties.

A telly source said: “Gino is a clever bloke and doesn’t want to have all his eggs in one basket – so to speak.

“He knows the fickle nature of the restaurant trade – he only has to look at the collapse of Jamie Oliver’s empire for confirmation of that and the pandemic is a graphic reminder of something that can arrive that’s totally unexpected.

“But bricks and mortar are always a safe bet and he’s right to look at that as an area for growth.”

Canny Gino – estimated to be worth around £8 million – already has a £300,000 investment property on the balance sheet of another firm – Gino D’Acampo Limited.

That outfit has cash reserves of £729,254 and a bottom-line of £1.5 million.

The star co-owns Bontà Italia Ltd, a supplier of Italian and he runs a chain of restaurants with his name followed by My Pasta Bar or My Restaurant.

Gino was crowned King of the Jungle in the ninth series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!. In 2009.

He shares three children with his wife and teenage sweetheart Jessica, including Mia, eight and her older brothers Luciano, 18, and Rocco, 15.
