D'abord Gino seemed confident he knew the answer, telling host Michael McIntyre: “Knowing Nigella, she would probably boil the potatoes first and then put them in a hot oven.

He was left shocked when the answer turned out to be 230 degrés, not 210 degrees like he thought.

Gino blasted: “See that’s why Nigella Lawson knows nothing about how to cook roast potatoes.

The light-hearted gag got a massive laugh from the crowd as Gino furiously ranted about his loss.

He was sent back underground and replaced by Bear Grylls.

One Nigella fan wrote: “Can we swap Gino for Nigella, à présent?”

Celebrities on The Wheel included singer Michael Ball, comedian Rosie Jones, etiquette expert William Hanson, singer and Strictly star Fleur East, chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, presenter AJ Odudu and comedian Bill Bailey.

Gino is frequently seen cooking on the telly on ITV’s This Morning and alongside Gordon Ramsay and Fred Serieix on Gordon, Gino and Fred’s Road Trip.

Meanwhile Nigella, 62, films cooking shows for the BBC from her home.
