Fred Sirieix and Gino D’Acampo gave their followers more than they bargained for after each going completely naked for a hilarious Instagram photo on Friday.
The First Dates star, 49, and the TV chef, 45, were surrounded by a flurry of hair-raising crew members on an upcoming ITV show without their friend Gordon Ramsay.
To make sure their modesty was pixelated, the double act posed against an idyllic mountain landscape in their birthday costume.

In his caption, the maître d’ wrote: ‘Appearance can be deceiving and so we should never judge a book by its cover (or lack thereof). Despite what some may say IT WAS WORK [laughing emoji].’
His tempered fans took to the comment section to share their jokes, with one beginning: “I was hoping for bigger pixels.”
Others added: “[Aubergine emoji] Served in both Italian and French style [laughing emoji],’ and, ‘The faces of the crew [laughing emojis].’

ITV newsreader Lucrezia Millarini chimed in, ‘Good lord! Is this a new series from Naked Attraction?!’
It comes after Gino revealed that Gordon will no longer be filming their TV show alongside Fred due to work commitments in the US.
The unlikely trio have won fans across the country with their high jinks on ITV series Gordon, Gino and Fred’s Road Trip, but Gino devastated fans when he confirmed that the Hell’s Kitchen frontman will no longer be part of the show.
Sharing a photo of himself sleeping next to Fred, he recently wrote: “Unfortunately we will no longer be filming #GordonGinoandFred, mainly because @gordongram is too busy working on his hair highlights in the US.

The star cheekily hinted at a new show featuring Fred’s sporran – nicknamed ‘Justin’ – adding: ‘But don’t worry guys, @fred_sirieix and I have a plan #JustinGinoandFred Coming soon…….GDx.’
An ITV spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘It has been a challenge to make a show involving international travel during this period, with the knock-on effect of Covid-19 restrictions, but Gordon, Gino and Fred has not been cancelled.’
The show’s first series premiered in 2018 and saw the trio explore local culture and cuisine in Italy, France and Scotland.
A 2019 Christmas special titled “Christmas Road Trip: Three Unwise Men” saw the group visit Morocco. The 2021 series followed the trio as they explored Greece.

The show has proven to be a critical and commercial success and was nominated for a TV BAFTA in 2019.
Already a huge star in the United States, Gordon spent 16 years working with Fox on shows like Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares.
In September, it was reported that Gordon, worth an estimated £140 million, further increased his fortune by £6 million amid the pandemic.
Gordon, Gino, and Fred: Roadtrip, and the new Fox series Next Level Chef are among those TV stints that have boosted his bank balance by an astonishing figure.
His production company Studio Ramsey didn’t stop at making a series of shows, going as far as producing YouTube segments as well as Channel 4’s The Fantastical Factory of Curious Craft, hosted by Keith Lemon.
Gordon’s Humble Pie Media and Humble Pie Productions are now worth £9.5 million together, according to reports from The Sun, an increase of £7 million from the previous year.
Documents revealed the latter paid just under £1 million in taxes, while the former paid £142,000, meaning the Hell’s Kitchen star has earned around £6 million during the pandemic.
MailOnline contacted a Gordon representative at the time for comment.
