A brand new series of ‘The Restaurant’ returns with acclaimed chefs Marco Pierre White and Rachel Allen at the helm as a host of familiar faces prove they have what it takes to be the restaurant’s head chef tonight at 9 p.m. on Virgin Media One.

The series will see six popular Irish celebrities swap their day jobs for oven mitts, all aiming to achieve that all-important five-star rating starting with Leinster and Ireland rugby legend Devin Toner paying tribute to his late father, Peter, with a menu of nostalgia and finesse tonight. But will the winner of three Six Nations, four European Cups and seven league titles get the number of stars he wants?

This year, an incredible lineup of familiar faces continues with Virgin Media Television’s ‘Holding’ star and Graham Norton, Demi Isaac Oviawe, Dublin GAA Legend, Philly McMahon, broadcaster and social media star, Doireann Garrihy, silver medalist. Olympic money and world champion rower, Gary O’Donovan and comedienne Deirdre O’Kane. As they cook up a storm in the kitchen, diners will eat and critique their meal while guessing who it might be behind the kitchen doors.
