His TV career continued to flourish with him as the host of the BBC show Million Pound Menu (2018-2019), a Dragon’s Den style programme which saw restaurant entrepreneurs go head-to-head to secure a life-changing investment for their business.

In 2017 they got together to present Gordon, Gino and Fred’s Great Christmas Roast where they had to deliver a banquet for deserving members of the public and emergency services, such as those who risked their lives in the aftermath of terror attacks and the Grenfell disaster. The three chefs continued with Gordon, Gino and Fred’s Ultimate Roadtrip (2018) where they visited Italy, France and Scotland, American Roadtrip (2020) and Go Greek! (2021) as well as a number of special episodes where they visited the likes of Morocco and Finland.
