People Are Losing It Over Gino D'Acampo's Pronunciation Of TikTok

TikTok is now one of the most popular social media apps, and TV chef Gino D'Acampo has finally joined.

Gino announced the news in a video post to his 1.2 million Instagram followers.

However, there's one thing in the video that has attracted the most attention - Gino's pronunciation of the video sharing app.

In the video he says: "Hi guys, I just wanted to let you know that I am finally on TikTok", although his pronunciation of the app's name sounds more like 'TukTok'.

After instructing his IG followers to follow him on the app, the person filming the video interrupts Gino and corrects his pronunciation. This leads to a quick exchange between the pair.

Gino then adds: "Go to @iamginodacampo for my TikTok, 'TukTok' or what ever it's called, it's gonna be a lot of fun, ciao!"

People have been losing their minds over 'alternate' pronunciations of words in the last few months.

You'll probably remember when Nigella Lawson debuted 'micro-wa-vay' during an episode of her cooking show, Cook, Eat, Repeat.

While talking fans through her recipe for brown butter colcannon, Nigella said: "I still need a bit of milk - full fat - which I've warmed in the [micro-wa-vay].

Tyla readers voted Nigella's mico-wa-vay the second most iconic moment of 2020 after the viral Chanel The Parrot video.
