This Morning's Gin0 D'Acampo has announced that he's got a small role in Pixar's upcoming movie Luca.

The TV presenter and celebrity chef took to Twitter today (Wednesday, June 2) to share a short, behind-the-scenes video of himself in the recording studio, where he brought animated priest Eugenio to life.

"It's an honour to join the world of Disney, especially in a film that reminds me of my summers in Italy," he captioned the clip, which sees him discussing the character with director Enrico Casarosa and admitting that delivering his five lines was "more difficult" than he thought it would be.

"I think it's easier to cook for a wedding of 50 people," D'Acampo laughed. "But it's good. Happy. Super happy."

"It's wonderful to be able to add local voices in cameo roles in our films – and Gino had a lot of fun doing it. I think UK audiences will be thrilled to hear a familiar voice in the role and we can't wait to share Luca with them this month," Casarosa said in a prepared statement, confirming that Eugenio will be played by somebody else in other countries' versions.

Starring the voice talents of Room's Jacob Tremblay and Shazam's Jack Dylan Grazer, Luca centres on new pals Luca and Alberto, who experience an unforgettable summer together on the Italian Riviera – all the while hiding the fact that they're actually sea monsters from a hidden underwater world.

Newcomer Emma Berman, former Grey's Anatomy star Giacomo Gianniotti, comedian Jim Gaffigan and Big Mouth's Maya Rudolph also feature.

Luca is set to premiere exclusively on Disney+ on June 18, 2021.
