Budding restaurateurs are being invited to take part in a new BBC 2 TV series, which will see nine couples set up and run their own eateries.
The Restaurant will see contestants create their perfect restaurant and open the doors to the paying public, with one duo voted off the show each week.
The winning team will be supported by Blanc who will stump up a six-figure sum of his own money to back their business.
