Remember that reality TV show which was a bit like The Apprentice but focused on the contestants? restaurant-owning acumen rather than the art of arse-kissing Alan Sugar called The Restaurant? Well it is back for a third series.
That's right, Raymond Blanc is returning to judge nine couples who think that they can run an eatery because they once threw a successful dinner party so they can join him in restaurant running Disneyland. However this time Raymond says, ?This year will be survival of the fittest. I am not looking for dreamers, I want to see couples with fresh ideas and a partnership that will flourish under pressure.? He says that every time, though, doesn't he?
Helping Raymond put some emphasis onto the current economic bonanza we're enjoying will be expert advisers Sarah Willingham and David Moore. It will be interesting to see if they inexplicably keep in the worst couple till the final again.
