The six-part series will combine "lifestyle, travel and cookery" as the This Morning regular reveals some of the country's "best-kept secrets".

Miles Jarvis, executive producer at ITV Studios, said: "Gino is already a familiar face to many viewers, and Gino's Italian Escape offers the audience the chance to join him on a trip home to experience the unique Southern Italian lifestyle that has been so key to his identity."

The channel has also signed a deal with publishers Hodden & Stoughton for D'Acampo to write a cookery book to complement the series.

The 2009 I'm a Celebrity... winner has previously hosted daytime show Let's Do Lunch with Gino and Mel alongside Melanie Sykes.

Gino's Italian Escape will air in September on ITV.
