The 35-year-old This Morning presenter was seen blushing after Gino, 40, asked her: “Am I allowed to use a word? I’ll whisper it in your ear.”
He was then heard saying loudly into Holly’s ear: “Can I say prostitute?” Gino’s words left Holly and the rest of the camera crew in stitches over his failed attempt to quietly speak to her.
Co-host Phillip Schofield quipped: “That’s the loudest whisper ever!”
Holly answered Gino’s question, telling he could use “lady of the night”, but the cook decided he was going to stick to “prostitute” after asking her advice.
The cook went on to explain the origins behind his pasta dish Linguine Puttanesca, saying that prostitutes would make it for sailors after they came back to shore after a period at sea.
He said that it helped to “cool down” a person’s nether regions and would be a regular occurrence.
