FRED Sirieix has revealed his Jamaica wedding has been pushed back to 2022 – but Gino D’Acampo is still planning his “above board” stag party.
The First Dates maître d’ spoke to presenters Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard on Good Morning Britain today about having to wait two years to wed his fiancee, who he affectionately calls “Fruitcake”.
Fred, 48, told the presenters: “Well we are waiting to see when we can travel as it’s important to have friends and family there.
“So we have to stay fluid here it’s out of control but we are planning for early 20202 now.”
Asked about his plans for Jamaica, he added: “It’s going to be great I can’t wait you know, it’s going to be very exciting … we are looking very slowly at the venues. There is no rush.”
Fred said he proposed to his mystery girlfriend in lockdown at their home in Peckham, London, and “it was perfect because she said ‘yes'”.
He added: “The main thing the only thing is I did not get a ring but I’ve managed to do it now we are out of lockdown, and she is very happy, so all is well.”
Fred is close pals with Italian chef Gino thanks to their travel show with Gordon Ramsay, and said he has been assured his stag party will be a civilised affair…
He told Ben and Kate: “Yes, listen it’s going to be fun if Gino organises it it. It will be good fun, but I’ve been assured it’s going to be very overboard!”
Fred announced his engagement back in March – and told The Sun his sex life has soared in lockdown.
He said: “I’ve never enjoyed sex as much as now. I think it’s a confidence thing and meeting another person who feels exactly the same way as me.
“I like myself much more than when I was 20, I’m a better human being than when I was 20. It’s that overall wisdom.”
The telly fave opened up about meeting his fiancée on the street – a mystery woman he calls “Fruitcake”.
He added: “It was so beautiful. When I saw her I fell in love and she smiled because she knew. We went for a drink and we were all over each other.”
In July 2016, he revealed he had never been married before, adding that the closest thing to marriage had been his 12-year-old relationship with ex Alex.
Two years later Fred took to his social media account to reveal he was in a new relationship with his now fiancée.
