Gino D'Acampo Hits Out At Trolls Who Criticised Him For Cuddling His Daughter In Bed
Gino D'Acampo has taken to Instagram to hit back at trolls who criticised him for cuddling his daughter in bed.
The celebrity chef, 43, came under fire last month after posting an image of himself snuggling with seven-year-old Mia.
Now, Gino has posted a video in response, hitting back at trolls who called him "weird".
In the video, the TV personality - who can be seen cuddling his little girl - said: "Do you know last time when I put a picture of me and you in bed giving kisses and cuddles? A lot of people they thought it was weird.
"I thought it was nice, because we were cuddling and I love you so much."
Mia asked her dad: "Why did they think it was weird?"
"I don't know," Gino responds. "They are the weird ones, nothing wrong with daughter and daddy cuddling in bed right?' What shall we say to these people? What's the message we should give these weird people?"
Mia then gives a cheeky middle finger to the camera, before Gino bursts out lauging and adds: "Mummy's going to kill you!"
Gino captioned the video: "Something to think about... I wish you all a Happy New Year."
When Gino posted the original snap back in November, some followers had strong opinions on the photograph.
"Morning cuddles with my little Mia, best feeling in the world," he wrote at the time.

But the post divided social media users, with one commenting: "Why post this pic for the world to see?
"Your daughter looks topless, you don't know who is seeing this... especially she have to go to school, be sensible!"
While others disagreed, with another adding: "To all the haters, there is a father who loves his children and cuddles in bed with his children and it's not bad at all it just shows how much he cares."
Gino and wife Jessica Stellina Morrison also have two other children, Luciano, 17 and Rocco, 14.
The dad is known for being very close to his family and often posts sweet snaps with daughter Mia on Instagram.
In one, the seven-year-old is painting her dad's nails while in another they can be seen playing with Lego.
But, Gino isn't the only celeb who has been trolled for having a close relationship with his daughter.
David Beckham has come under fire a number of times for images he's posted with eight-year-old daughter, Harper.
The 44-year-old was labelled as "inappropriate" by trolls in 2017 after he posted a snap of him kissing Harper on a beach.
Ever since, the former footballer has vowed to ignore critics by posting similar photographs with his youngest child.
Most recently, David shared a selection of snaps taken on a daddy-daughter ice skating trip, including one in which he can be seen kissing Harper on the lips.
"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas," he captioned the photo.
