Celebrity First Dates

Will Esther Rantzen find love in the First Dates restaurant?

‘There is only one happiness in this life. To love, and to be loved.’ First Dates’ suave Gallic maître d’ Fred Sirieix once again offers advice on matters of the heart and a warm welcome to those looking for love at his London restaurant. Nervously walking through Fred’s doors are four celebrities, all hoping to find ‘the one’. Reputation is everything for these famous faces: Esther Rantzen worries that her formidable reputation might put potential suitors off; EastEnders bad boy Richard Blackwood tries to prove he’s not like his character, Vincent; and The Only Way Is Essex star Jess Wright has seen her love life played out on screen for the past five years. Joining them is Paralympic table tennis player Will Bayley.
