When is First Dates on Channel 4 tonight, who is maitre d’ Fred Sirieix and how does the dating show work?

FIRST Dates is back on TV tonight – so brace yourself for an endless amount of awkward moments and cringeworthy conversations and stolen glances between the staff.

Yes, the original (not the American, celebrity or hotel version) is back tonight on Channel 4 with the new waitress Charlotte, for a bit more matchmaking…

When is First Dates on Channel 4?

The seventh episode of First Dates airs tonight (Monday November 6) at 10pm on Channel 4.

This is the ninth series of the popular dating show.

Tonight's episode goes head-to-head with the News at Ten on BBC One and ITV, Newsnight on BBC Two and the Autopsy on Channel 5.

Where is the First Dates restaurant?

You’ll be pleased to know that the venue is very real and, yes, you can dine there.

The show is filmed at the very swanky The Paternoster Chop House in central London, next to St Paul’s Cathedral at 1 Warwick Court, Paternoster Square.

Starters are between £6 and £11, while mains are about £17 to £35.

When the restaurant’s not shut for filming you can book in to recreate your own awkward First Date if you wish.

You won't however, get to be served by the popular waiters and waitresses from the show – CiCi, Sam, Laura, Austin and Merlin all have other jobs when they are not filming for the show.

Who is the First Dates maître d’ Fred Sirieix?

French born Fred is best known as the loveable maître d’ on hit Channel 4 show First Dates.

The 45-year-old was born and brought up in Limogues in western France and from an early age decided he wanted to work in the service industry.

He attended catering college and initially trained as a chef but decided to focus on being front of house.

He trained as a maître d’ at a Michelin-starred restaurant in France before moving to London.

Fred then worked at La Tante Claire in Chelsea and also spent time at Le Gavroche in Mayfair, Satario and Brasserie Roux.

As well as being the much-loved maître d’ in the First Dates restaurant, he is also the general manager at Galvin at Windows – a Michelin-starred French haute cuisine restaurant located on the 28th floor of the London Hilton on Park Lane.
