The BBC One game show is slated for a “Comic Relief” special – with the main telethon on March 19 – as the host is accompanied by Chef Gino and his son Luciano, who are trying to raise as much money as possible for charity to collect.
Gordon said, “The amazing work Comic Relief is doing is really important. It has never been more relevant to support those in need, both here in the UK and internationally.
“It was great fun to have Gino and Luciano on the show. Obviously, Luci gets his brain and beauty from his mother. Let me tell you this boy is smart!”

And Gino, who appeared alongside Gordon and ‘First Dates’ Maitre d’ Fred Sirieix on ‘Gordon, Gino and Fred: Road Trip’, is looking forward to participating.
He added: “I am very excited to be working with Comic Relief. Your work has been so incredible, important and worthwhile and it’s a real honor to be part of it.
“Plus, I get to see what the Game Show Host Contest is up close and personal, and I’m happy to tell you I’m not worried!”
Meanwhile, Gordon previously admitted that he “needed room to breathe” as the host of the new game show.
He explained, “I wasn’t sure I was going to be a phenomenal game show host, I wanted to be myself.
“And I think because of that support from the BBC and not [putting me] I needed room to breathe in a straitjacket.
“And so it’s pretty dynamic to get a show at 9pm.”
And Gordon insists he was “driven” so that the contestants would do well on the show.
He added, “These are real people who are going through some uncomfortable, difficult and traumatic times. And £ 100,000 is life changing money. There is nothing wrong with telling them, “I want you to do well … but I really will be [annoyed] if you don’t win ‘It’s a difficult show to start and there are so many moving parts that you have to be so diverse, caring, firm, but fair and motivated to bring some cash to the attendees. And when they don’t do it well, I feel bad, I take it personally. “
