Gino D’Acampo appeared on This Morning on Wednesday where he chatted about his cameo in a brand new Disney and Pixar movie, Luca.

The Italian chef's line is: "Oh mamma mia, please no more revving!" but despite it being short and sweet, the pressure got the better of Gino.

Phillip Schofield told him: "There are no small parts, only small actors!"

But Gino could not hear Phil and Holly and was speaking to someone else, saying: " I hope they are not talking to me, because I can't hear them!"

Phil warned him: "We are talking to you, you're live on television! How long did it take you to learn that?"

"What, learn what?" laughed Gino.

"Your Hollywood role," Phil clarified.

"Oh well I only had a very small part in the movie but I was reading it so I didn't have to learn anything," Gino replied.

"But let me tell you, it was one of the most difficult things that I have done in my life. I remember when they asked me to do it I said, 'Are you for real? That's not the kind of thing that I do.'

"And then I found out that it was a priest, and I was like, 'You really have no idea what I do, American people have no idea."

Phil asked: "Why was delivering that line difficult?"

Gino explained: "It was difficult because I didn't want to mess it up, so giving my voice to an amazing character in an amazing movie, Luca is just an incredible animation movie.

"I just didn't want to mess it up, I didn't want to be the one where they say, 'That's not a good job done.'

"But at the end everything was good, so I'm very happy, very happy!

"I was also happy because playing the priest, I was thinking very hard on that, I think it's probably the closest to God I will ever get!" he added.

Gino also joked his character was not based on his own image, laughing: "He has a huge hooter of a nose! Look at him! No it doesn't look like me at all, Holly!

"What do you think?" he asked.

Holly replied: "Well he is not wearing speedos whereas I think you might be, those are very short shorts!" she said, as Gino almost revealed everything.

"It's because I am sitting down! That's why," he explained.
