The maître d’ of the Channel 4 First Dates restaurant, Fred Sirieux, has revealed he feels a bit like David Attenborough when shooting the show.
Speaking prior to the launch of First Dates Hotel, where the guests can stay a little while longer, Sirieux revealed the similarities between First Dates and Plant Earth.
“The programme is hardly edited. What you see is what you get. The people on the programme are having their date and it’s like a nature programme.
I feel like David Attenborough sometimes because it’s like this nature programme where you are looking at how people are interacting with each other and it’s about much more than dating.
“It’s about all of us and it’s fascinating.”
First Dates Hotel will see hopefuls looking for love stay overnight in France in a hotel and go on a second date if they hit it off.
According to Sirieix it will not be “trashy” but will instead give participants more time to get to know their partner.
First Dates Hotel begins on Channel 4 on 2nd January at 10pm.
