TV chef Gino D'Acampo experienced a horrifying accident while filming an ITV travel show with Fred Sirieix in Vienna.

The incident, described as "the worst shoot of my life," occurred during a toboggan stunt and led to the immediate halt of production.

According to The Sun, D'Acampo was reportedly sliding down a 200-foot toboggan while holding a cocktail glass for a segment in the show.

A collision occurred when a mother and her two children came speeding down at 30 mph. The accident left "blood everywhere," and one of the boys had blood pouring from his mouth.

Following the accident, D'Acampo's temperature spiked to 40.3 degrees, and he was bedridden.

He was eventually flown back home and prescribed antibiotics. The chef criticized ITV for not checking up on him after the incident, stating that he felt neglected by the network he had worked with for 22 years.

The show, titled "Emission Impossible," aimed to focus on sustainable travel and was a new venture for D'Acampo and Sirieix, who had previously collaborated on "Gordon, Gino and Fred’s Road Trip."

Gino D'Acampo gained instant fame after his funny 'If my grandmother had wheels she would have been a bike' comment on live tv back in 2010. Watch the clip below.
