Maitre d' Fred Sirieix and his team are opening their very special restaurant to some familiar faces in a full series of Celebrity First Dates.

Four star diners are bravely heading out on a blind date with an unsuspecting member of the public in the hope they'll meet The One.

Jess Wright is used to having her love life played out on screen after starring on TOWIE for five years, but after a series of unsuitable suitors, she really wants to find Mr (W)Right! Can the First Dates team help?

Meanwhile, EastEnders bad boy Richard Blackwood is on his best behaviour as he heads into the restaurant for his date, and TV legend Esther Rantzen hopes to cure her loneliness after the death of her adored husband 15 years ago.

Finally, Paralympian Will Bayley, who won a silver medal in table tennis at London 2012, brings some flowers for his date, but is this more nerve-wracking than competing in the Paralympics?
