The chef added: "My kids are not allowed to be fussy eaters. The problem with fussy children is their stupid parents. I run a family kitchen and in my house we don't have options. I never had options, why should they?"

Gino and wife Jessica met when he was just 19 and working in Sylvester Stallone's Mambo King restaurant in Marbella. They were married in 2002 when Gino was 24, tying the knot following his two-year stint in prison after he was convicted of burgling singer Neil Young’s London home.

He has said that getting married marked a new start in his life, telling The Independent: "I was a boy, so I decided to get married and then I will be a man. When I decide something, I have to do something to make it happen."
