Gino D'Acampo rarely shares photos of his children, so it came as a wonderful surprise to his followers when he posted a snap alongside his lookalike son Luciano.

The This Morning chef and his eldest boy look so similar in the photo, which Gino posted on Instagram earlier this week. Both father and son posed with the same cheeky glint in their eye as they enjoyed a day at sea.

The 44-year-old uploaded a series of images, both recent and from Luci's childhood and captioned the post: "Buon Compleanno to my big boy! @lucidacampo. Have a Fantastico birthday, GD x." Luci was among those to comment, writing: "Thanks Dad xx."

The TV star has previously opened up about family life in an interview with Woman magazine and admitted that he's the stricter parent. "You can see my wife look at the children, saying with her eyes 'Don't even think about it, he's not going to bend,'" he shared.

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?"
