Another added: ‘Anyone who sees this as anything other than the love between a father & daughter is what’s wrong and the issue. If you’re sexualising this you’re not well.’

‘Anyone who says it’s wrong to kiss your child on the lips says more about them. Beautiful picture & a beautiful family,’ another remarked.

Some people also insisted anyone who may find the affection strange wasn’t familiar with Mediterranean cultures, which are often said to be more open and touchy-feely.

‘It’s only weird to people who don’t understand culture,’ one commenter said. ‘My Greek son kissed and embraced his wonderful father, always.’

The TV personality also shared the post on his Twitter, where some were less supportive.

The TV chef took to Twitter to share a video while snuggled up with his little girl, insisting those that were uncomfortable with the original snap which was taken in November were in fact the ‘weird’ ones.

Sharing the clip, Gino said: ‘Last time I put a picture of me and you in bed giving kisses and cuddles a lot of people they thought it was weird.’

‘I thought it was nice, because we were cuddling and I love you so much.’

Mia questioned: ‘Why did they think it was weird?’

He told her: ‘I don’t know, they are the weird ones, nothing wrong with daughter and daddy cuddling in bed right?’ What shall we say to these weird people?’

However Gino was left open-mouthed when his daughter responds by flicking her middle finger to the camera and he shouts: ‘Mummy’s going to kill you!’

Fans of the television personality had also rushed to his defence when he posted an innocent photograph of himself cuddling his daughter in bed a month prior.

The This Morning star captioned the sweet snap: ‘Morning cuddles with my little Mia, best feeling in the world…….GDx’.

Although many of Gino’s followers praised the sweet snap, some shockingly branded the photograph as ‘creepy’.

Another added: ‘She could at least have a top on I’m really sorry but it’s not our fault we thin think the way we do. The world is just so messed.’

And a third chimed in with: ‘Gino I Luv you but this picture is creepy with your daughter in bed.’
