Gino D’Acampo has challenged the response of “haters” to a photo of him kissing his young daughter on the lips.
The TV chef, 45, shared the image to Instagram of him and his youngest child Mia, seven, sharing a quick peck.
Captioning the photo, the This Morning star wrote: “To all the haters out there… yes I still kiss my principessa on the lips, get over it and get a life.”
The post has received more than 55,000 ‘likes’, with over 1,800 social media users leaving messages of support.
They included Fearne Cotton, who left a string of heart-eyed emojis, while his son Rocco, 17, commented with love hearts.
One fan wrote: “Anyone who sees this as anything other than the love between a father and daughter is what’s wrong and the issue.”
Another shared: “Beautiful picture and a beautiful family.”
As well as Mia and Rocco, D’Acampo shares a son Luciano, 20, with his wife Jessica Stellina.
It comes after his daughter kissed D’Acampo on the lips after he surprised her with a puppy in January.
In a video shared to Instagram, she could be seen taking off a blind-fold to be greeted with a small dog called Snoop who was a “late Christmas present”.
Mia tearfully responded: “No you didn’t! No, you didn’t! Oh my god!”
After cuddling the small animal she gave her father a peck as a thank you, adding “I love him”.
