The Restaurant returns to our screens THIS WEEK – but which celebrity will appear on the first episode?

We can't wait for this!


A brand new series of Virgin Media One’s The Restaurant with Marco Pierre White and Rachel Allen kicks off tomorrow night (Thursday 12th September) at 9pm.

The series, which is hosted at Marco Pierre White Courtyard Bar & Grill Donnybrook, will see six brand new celebrities turn up the heat in a professional kitchen – in a bid to impress a packed restaurant, and three critics.

First up in episode one is singer, songwriter and radio presenter Una Healy – whose menu is inspired by her childhood memories of growing up in County Tipperary.

For starters, Una made a roasted tomato soup with spinach filled Ravioli, and Crab Claws in Garlic Butter served with a Porridge Bread.

For mains, it was Rib-eye Steak with Peppercorn Sauce & Spice Bag Chips, and Pan-Fried Cod with Brown Butter Shrimps and Champ – which was Una’s Confirmation Day dish.

For deserts, Una served a Tipp-Top of the Pops Sundae, a playful clue, on the chart-topping girl group The Saturdays.

Will the critics be impressed by Una’s skills in the kitchen? Tune in to Virgin Media One tomorrow night at 9pm to find out…
