Now, Gino - who also has children Rocco, 14, and Mia, seven, with his wife Jessica Stellina Morrison - has spoken out about the pair's relationship after the 'Hell's Kitchen' star called the situation "a f*****g nightmare" during an appearance on 'The Jonathan Ross Show' last month.

Speaking to Holly Willoughby and on 'This Morning', Gino said: "Tilly is beautiful. They've known each other for a few years now. I don't really want to say a lot because it's none of my business.
"But what a great pleasure knowing my son is dating Gordon's daughter, just to really annoy him."
Whilst Luciano is rarely seen in public with his celebrity dad, Tilly - who hosts her own TV show on CBBC called Matilda and the 'Ramsay Bunch' - is determined to follow in her dad's footprints after she released her own cookbook and appeared alongside Gordon on 'MasterChef Junior'.
The 52-year-old foul mouthed chef - who also has four other children, Megan, 21, 19-year-old twins Holly and Jack and seven-month-old son Oscar, with his wife Tana - revealed he first discovered his daughter was dating Luciano whilst the foodies were filming in San Fransico.
He said: "We were driving through San Francisco and FaceTiming Luciano and all of a sudden Tilly pops up behind them, and they are out having lunch."
