Channel 4's First Dates is back on our screens, so here's everything you need to know about the hunky Maître d' Fred Sirieix.
Fred Sirieix has charmed many of us with his good looks and charming accent on First Dates. But how old really is the First Dates front-of-house, and is he single? Here's all the info.
The first episode of the new series of First Dates will air on Tuesday 16 April, so get your love goggles on!
Though his good looks might tell another story, Fred Sirieix is 47 years old.
He was born on 27 January 1972 in Limoges, France.
Fred was previously in a long-term relationship for 12 years with his partner Alex. The pair have two children together, Andrea and Lucien.
Fred is now dating someone who he refers to as his 'fruitcake' on social media.
The pair seem to enjoy holidays together, whilst staying anonymous in the public eye.
Is the First Dates restaurant even real? If you fancy a chance at love yourself, you're in luck.
The First Dates restaurant is indeed real. It's called Paternoster Chop House, and you'll find it at 1 Warwick Court, Paternoster Square in central London, just a stone's throw away from St Paul's Cathedral.
Love is definitely in the air… #FirstDates returns with a brand new series tonight at 10pm on @Channel4 😍 Get ready to meet our lovely new daters ❤️@fredsirieix1 @CiCi_Coleman @laura_tott @austinventour @GrantUrquhart pic.twitter.com/cVlSGZdmyJ— First Dates (@FirstDates) April 16, 2019
Fred began his career training as a chef in France, before deciding to focus on front of house work.
Beyond First Dates, Fred has starred in the spin-off series First Dates Abroad, My Million Pound Menu, Gordon, Gino and Fred's Christmas Roast, and more recently Gordon, Gino and Fred's Road Trip.
Fred's father stole First Dates fans' hearts when he visited his son at the restaurant.
Although he couldn't speak English, the suave frenchman sent Twitter into a meltdown, and Fred often posts about his father and mother on social media.
Fred grew up in Limoges, France. Both of his parents worked in the healthcare profession, and Fred followed in their footsteps ensuring people had a good restaurant experience under his care.
Fred now loves in Peckham, London, but his French accent still stays true to his roots.
