The venue for tonight's first programme is Ruby Tates in Brighton, owned and run by ex-actor and failed Hollywood wannabe ALLAN LOVE. Situated in an affluent and trendy area just one street back from the beach, it's an oyster bar and seafood restaurant but Allan's never tasted the food because he hates fish. He won't even put his head round the door of his own kitchen, where lurk two angry chefs - furious Frenchman ALEX and indolent Aussie JAMIE - busy doing nothing but turning out a lacklustre menu including hot fruits de mer and ageing lobster. They themselves admit they wouldn't eat it, and incredibly for a seaside restaurant, there isn't a local fish in sight. Written by
